Votes for Women
Many years ago when there was something called The Man Show on Comedy Central, Jimmy Kimmel and Adam Corolla hit the streets and opened a tent with the header: End Women's Suffrage. When people came into the tent, Kimmell and Corolla explained it was to end suffrage, you know, suffering, and sure enough, men and women signed their petition. That street scene has stayed with me all these years.
This year marks the 92nd anniversary of women's right to vote, and on Thursday, August 30 at 5 p.m., "the sixth annual Suffrage Parade starts at Kate Sessions statue, 'marches' across Cabrillo Bridge to Spreckels Organ Pavilion to be welcomed by San Diego Women’s Drum Circle."
Participation is free, and the parade will begin at Sixth Ave and Laurel St.
