The Letter W:

It was a 70 year struggle for equality.
Many Western states had already assigned the right to vote to the women of the states, starting with Wyoming in 1869. (Makes sense doesn't it?)
It got mean to the point of brutality in Washington, D.C. where women picketed the White House, the first time this had ever happened.
Women were arrested, per the order of Pres. Woodrow Wilson.

The big "Why?" lingers in my brain. Some things do not make plain sense.
