Amiah Terrell Walls 3 Gifted World Literature 13 March, 2016 Inconsistency in Strongly Held Beliefs Four years after Anna Howard Shaw gave her famous speech, "The Fundamental Principle of a Republic", women gained the right to vote everywhere in the United States. Suffragists, women’s rights activists in the early 20th century, worked to gain this fundamental right for years through speeches, protests, an events, but any bill that would bring progress to their movement had been shot down by the supreme court or other U.S government branches every time.

I know you cannot make a comment regarding another Judge ruling, however I am asking for someone to, look into the matter on a more check and balance bases.
