Celebrating Progress for Women’s Rights

Women's Suffrage
We celebrate today that on August 18, 1920, the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, which guarantees the right of women to vote, was ratified when Tennessee became the 36th state to approve it.  This is an occurence to remember and celebrate.

America has come a long ways in opening civil rights for females, but the progression has not been quick enough. I heartily believe a women should be paid the same amount of money as a man to accomplish the same task. Gender discrimination is an injustice that Christians should be concerned about.

Nature, reason, and Scripture clearly recognize the unique characteristics of each gender. Society functions best when these distinctions are recognized and honored. God has designed each gender uniquely to compliment each other in marriage, parenting, community, commerce and various other areas.  The genders may be different in many areas, but they should be the same in respect and opportunity.
