THROWBACK THURSDAY -- YESTERDAY, HRC MARKED THE 100TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE ADOPTION OF THE 19TH AMENDMENT: “By now, we should all be able to vote. By now, we should all be free,” writes HRC Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Director Rebecca Hershey. “But the 19th Amendment was not enough to secure voting rights -- or freedom -- for all.
