The 19th Amendment, which gave American women the right to vote, was passed by Congress on June 4, 1919, and ratified on August 18, 1920. In the 21st century, we have seen a substantial amount of women (and young women in particular) running campaigns and winning elections in the U.S. and around the globe. Women who, like 38-year-old New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern (the world's youngest female head of state), are redefining leadership. 
Today, Ali is joined by two incredible young women and activists in our community -- Perri Freeman, newly elected Central District City Councilor, and Jane Stromberg, Ward 1 Inspector of Elections -- to discuss the power of young women in politics and how their success indicates a better and brighter future for all of us.

    This election season is looking pretty different isn’t it? One great thing is that more and more people are showing interest and investment in the political process and it is likely we will see some large turnout at the ‘polls’ this August 11 and November 3 - even if the polls are voting by mail!
