I learn something new every day. Today I logged onto an old friend's blog and found a really fascinating post about the women's suffrage movement. I never knew all of the violence involved (you'd think they would've covered that in AP History when I was in high school....). Well, you know me, I don't trust anyone, and especially not email forwards (which is where she got the post from), so I started searching around for more information. Turns out all the horribleness is real.
