Women's Equality Day

Women's Equality Day

 “The War of the Roses” was coined during votes to ratify the 19th Amendment of the US Constitution - when Suffragists distributed yellow roses to the supporters of women’s right, and anti-Suffragists handed out red roses for opposing the equal voting rights of women.  A Congressman's red rose craftily conveyed a view quite opposite love and affection for women in society.  How curious today that the sincerest male-to-female apologies are often paired with a bouquet of flowers!
