Votes For Women Mug
Representative Harry Burn changed his anti-suffragist stance after a letter from his mother, urging him to "be a good boy and help." His was the passing vote to ratify the 19th Amendment, granting American women the right to vote.
When questioned about his drastic switch, Burn said, "I believe we had a moral and legal right to ratify." And included: "I know that a mother's advice is always safest for her boy to follow, and my mother wanted me to vote for ratification."
In appreciation of the sisterhood who campaigned for the betterment of women's futures, raise your own Votes for Women mug.
