    I only know about Frances Perkins from Dirty Dancing (Baby was named after her).  

    Seriously, to Denise, I learned more reading your post than I ever learned in high school history.  My mother is one of those people who thinks voting should only be done by men... Oh, she'll go vote, but she thinks the ERA stuff is what "doomed" the country.  She won't vote for females running for anything - it's not their place... We've had some humdingers of arguments - she's not in the least grateful that women fought for her right to vote.  I swear she was raised by aliens (or I was).  

    Thank you for this enlightening diary.  Rec'd, tipped & liked on Facebook.
