Thank You Thursday 08/19/2010

Today we'd like to thank....

  • the suffragists who worked hard to get the 19th Amendment ratified on August 18, 1920, giving women the right to vote

  • American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) for filing a lawsuit against the high school that removed a girl from the yearbook for wearing a tuxedo in her senior portrait (They removed her name, photo, etc-- she was not mentioned anywhere in the yearbook at all!)

  • French pharmaceutical company HRA Pharma for developing the emergency contraceptive EllaOne

  • Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for approving Ella, giving women in the U.S. another way to prevent unwanted pregnancy
