March is Women's History Month, so it's a good time to remind ourselves how vehemently liberal-progressives fought against giving women the right to vote in the late 1800s and early 1900s. David Catron explains:
"Most educated Americans vaguely remember that the amendment granting women the right to vote was passed by Congress in 1919 and ratified by the states in 1920.

Ted Cruz and his staff mobilized to extinguish it," writes Roll Call in a profile of Amanda Carpenter. "It was a one-two punch that showcased the stature of one of the Texas Republican's top aides. ...
