In 1869 the Wyoming Territory and in 1870 the Territory of Utah gave women the right to vote, they lose it but regain it later at states, Utah in 1896, in 1897 Millicent Fawcett in Great Britain founded the National Union of Womens' Suffrage and tirelessly lived the idea of peaceful protest, it is said that the womens' suffrage movement influenced Gandhi and that Gandhi influenced Martin Luther King, Jr. Isn't is amazing how people can make a difference? Rarely was any one person able to see enormous results of their work, but over times their influence can be seen and is certainly felt. From a famous suffragette's headston, "Deeds not Words." Not to diminish the power of words, but I like that because words cannot stand alone, they come with action, and whatever we do is influential, whether we want it to be or not.
