Here's your VOTE with achieved milestones. All women today come into the world on the shoulders of the ones who came before them.

1873 Ellen Swallow Richards, the first woman to be admitted to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, earned a B.S. and became the first female professional chemist in the U.S.
August 26, 1920, the 19th Amendment to the US Constitution became law. Women voted in the fall elections, including in the Presidential election.
