Women March For Suffrage in New York City
-- Over 25,000 women marched up Fifth Avenue in New York City to advocate for women's suffrage. The fight had been ongoing for more than 65 years, with the Seneca Falls Convention in 1848 first passing a resolution in favor of women's suffrage. Sadly, they wouldn't find success for another five years. The New York Times warned if women got the vote, it would play havoc for themselves and society, and granted the suffrage, women would demand all the rights implied. It is impossible to think of women as soldiers and sailors, police patrolmen, or firemen. Source

Mole Day is celebrated to help all persons, especially chemistry students, become enthused about chemistry, which is the central science.
