Tonight I watched an ad on TV which has a man congratulating New Zealanders for being the first to give women the vote. This ad reminded me of the following picture which I discovered in Alvin Schmidt’s book “How Christianity Changed the World.”
The picture on this page shows women voting at the polls in New Jersey between 1790 and 1805.
Almost a hundred years before NZ granted women the vote.
Kind of reminds me of the woefully ignorant Victoria University ads that claimed that in the 14th century everyone thought the world was flat… must find that map of the world from the middle ages astronomy textbook and blog it, its a funny shape, it is round.
