Happy Birthday, Izannah Walker!
If Izannah were alive today, I would give her a gift for her birthday. But what to give? A piece of land? She owned property, but no. That's a personal decision. A lifetime supply of stockinette? Nah, that's too business-like. But you know what I enjoy that Izannah didn't? The right to vote as a woman. So if I could wrap up suffrage in a custom artist-made box, that would be my gift to her. Because it is independent women like Izannah who worked to give women the rights we enjoy today - to own property, to vote, to have a voice in the shaping of our society.
