“I do not wish them [women] to have power over men; but over themselves.”
― Mary Wollstonecraft, A Vindication of the Rights of Woman

Bad Romance: Women’s Suffrage is a parody music video paying homage to Alice Paul and the generations of brave women who joined together in the fight to pass the 19th Amendment, giving women the right to vote in 1920.

About Joshua Plant

Joshua Plant is nothing. His reality is nothingness, and because he has inhabited this space, this void, he is empowered. While wearing the hat of a meditator, entrepreneur, chef, PR guy, social media junkie, producer, yogi, quote lover, blogger & artist: he pays his bills doing PR; notwithstanding, his true calling extends far beyond the boundaries of his employment. / His blog entitled, Planting Wisdom, is dedicated to planting seeds of wisdom through enlightened writings, quotes, photos and mindfulness techniques all aimed to create a happier world. / Joshua is a foodie with an insane tongue that requires him to leap from place to place, country to country (planet to planet??) in search of new flavors and succulent nibbles! He puts his nose into everything work-wise, and just about everything else, he wants to get a sense of the notes that compose everything. One could suppose this is why he does not sleep, it is like a symphony of ideas, scents, and glitter dancing around his head twenty-four hours a day.

    And let’s not forget Jeanette Rankin!

    She was a congresswoman from Montana even before the women’s suffrage amendment was ratified. (Women could vote and run in certain states even before the amendment).

    Realizing the historical importance, she agonized over her very first vote, the question of war against Germany, before finally joining many others in voting ‘no’.

    By 1941, there was no more agonizing. She was the ONLY vote against war on Japan. FDR, she explained, had intentionally forced the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. Pointing this out was brave but not radical. FDR’s intention had been common knowledge at the time.

    Jeanette Rankin always chose peace over following the crowd.
