have probably never heard of Esther Morris. But she was very important
in the history of women's rights. Esther was the type of person who
didn't take no for an answer. When she wanted to do something, she
would try until she succeeded. In 1869, Esther was living in Wyoming
with her husband and children. She decided that she wanted to vote
in the upcoming elections. But at that time, women were not allowed
to vote. This didn't stop Esther. She talked to politicians
and convinced them to introduce a bill to allow women to vote. I
Could Do That!, she thought. And she was right.
