"...from women's rights to gay rights..."

From the convention speech of Hillary Clinton:

To fight for an America defined by deep and meaningful equality — from civil rights to labor rights, from women's rights to gay rights, from ending discrimination to promoting unionization to providing help for the most important job there is: caring for our families. To help every child live up to his or her God-given potential.

I'm thrilled that Senator Clinton honored the suffragettes, including Harriet Tubman, who was as ardently involved in the suffrage struggle as she was in the Underground Railroad.

Thanks to the success of Harriet Tubman and other amazing suffragettes, women now have voices and choices!

There is much that can be useful to today's activists in the successful straegies of the suffragettes.

But most people are totally in the dark about HOW the suffragettes won, and what life was REALLY like for women before they did.

Now readers can discover the shocking truth, and it's as easy as opening their e-mail.

"The Privilege of Voting" is a new free e-mail series that follows eight great women from 1912 - 1920 to reveal ALL that happened to set the stage for women to win the vote.

This is no boring history report.

Two beautiful and extremely powerful suffragettes -- Alice Paul and Emmeline Pankhurst are featured, along with Edith Wharton, Isadora Duncan, Alice Roosevelt and two gorgeous presidential mistresses.

There are tons of heartache for these heroines on the rocky road to the ballot box, but in the end, they WIN!

Exciting sequential series of 10-minute e-mails, perfect for coffeebreaks or anytime.

We deliver women's history - and make it free, fast and FUN!
