A brief history lesson

Just 10min ago my co-worker asked me who Elizabeth Cady Stanton was.


And she's a 24yr old white woman who has graduated high school and had a brief stint in college.


Then I mentioned my other co-worker, who is an African American/Black woman, didn't get the right to vote until 1964 (the full and non-exclusive right mind you) and she had such women as Ida B. Wells to be thankful for.

WTF is our public school system and colleges not teaching these young women?
