In Celebration of Women (in Office)

TRR’s home state — Arizona — just swore in our fifth female governor, Katie Hobbs, on January 2, 2023, making us the first sate to elect an historic five women to the state’s highest office.

Given this milestone, it seems relevant to share a video produced by Arizona State University in celebration of the centennial of the 19th amendment. The video features the voice of our founding editor, RD, reading the iconic words of Elizabeth Cady Stanton’s “Declaration of Sentiments,” a document that made its debut at the first women’s rights convention, also known as the Seneca Falls Convention of 1848.

We encourage everyone to celebrate the extraordinary contributions of women throughout our country’s history — from first-generation suffragists to Arizona’s female governors — while remaining both critical of their exclusionary practices, and committed to radical dialogue and inclusion in the future.
