Being a citizen of the United States means that when I reach the age of 18, I am able to vote. Back when George Washington was running for president, women were not allowed to vote. For all of the presidents up to Warren Harding, women were not allowed to vote for our country's leader. Now I am able to have a say in what I believe in, and reflect that in my choice for our president, all because of Lucretia Mott, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and many other radical women creating the Declaration of Sentiments. Understanding how I am able to vote is part of the reason of why I am going to vote every time I get a chance. Knowing what those women went through in order for me to vote, I am not going to take voting for granted.
