100 years later ...

The tv series I've been renting recently is Timeless, in which people from the present visit the past via time machine.

Tonight's episode had them visit New York City on March 4, 1919, when a speech by a suffragist convinced Woodrow Wilson to support giving women the vote.

Here's a clip showing the women activists marching (and being beaten by police) as a woman makes her impassioned call for justice ...

Here we stand today, 100 years later, with a self-confessed sexual abuser as president of the United States and with a Republican majority about to confirm a man who has been credibly accused of sexual assault as well. I can't express how angry and depressed this makes me. After all this time, women still aren't really people.
