Should Women Vote?

Should women vote?

Must we listen to those that say that it is unnecessary? (Yes, Patriarchy people I'm looking at you!)

I'm not going waste time arguing with anyone; because this quote says all that I need to say.

"I find it poor logic to say that women should vote because they are good. Men do not vote because they are good; they vote because they are male, and women should vote, not because we are angels and men are animals, but because we are human beings and citizens of this country." ~ Jo March, Little Women, 1994.

There.

End of story.

Something I've often wondered considering the women-shouldn't-vote position:

Is there a problem with women voting elsewhere where voting privileges are also not given to households? I'm thinking of church business meetings, company shareholders meetings, social clubs, etc.

I agree.... I am not a feminist, but I think I agree... by the way, I love Ingrid Bergman too!
