She’s Waited 96 Years to Vote for a Female President


She’s Waited 96 Years to Vote for a Female President

“Won’t that be fun, saying ‘Madam President’?”

By: Emily J

Edith Wilkinson was born on August 18th, 1920,  five days before the 19th Amendment (the right for a woman to vote) was included in the US Constitution. On Tuesday, she’ll finally fulfill a lifelong dream. She’ll get to vote for a woman president.


Edith is one of the women featured in I Waited 96 Years!, a project dedicated to profiling women who were born before women’s suffrage and have waited almost a century for a female candidate to vote for. In the video below, she tells the Huffington Post:


“Won’t that be fun, saying “Madam President”?  In my lifetime I never thought I’d get to see a woman president. It’s about time we had a woman running for President.

Every time they had a woman on a major ticket, she got shot down by a man. Somebody is trying to shut [Hillary Clinton] down, but they won’t do it. She’s a strong woman. We’ve seen in these various debate how she keeps her cool. She’s a fighter.

I can’t understand why young people fall for Trump. Although I understand that Trump does this on purpose ? gets everybody excited for his crazy ideas, like having a wall and making Mexico pay for it. He’s all a hoax, and he’s filling out these crazy lines when he’s just a fraud. The sooner we get him back to his Trump Tower the better.

I’m voting for Hillary Clinton because we finally would have a woman for president who will make this a better country than it was before.”
