The last decade always feels fast

Title

The last decade always feels fast

Description

The fight for a federal amendment was so painfully slow that everything after the 1913 Inauguration march looks like a sprint to the finish line. It was a turning point, for sure. But it reminds me of what folks would say to me when they learned I was an LGBT rights lawyer. 

they'd say: “Marriage equality has happened so fast!” The last decade was fast, I would respond. The first 50 years were slow. #Suffrage100 #CenturyofStruggle #19thAmendment
