Quick quote:

From Kathryn Joyce’s “Quiverfall: Inside the Christian Patriarchy.”  (3/5) stars.  A quote from one of the movement participants, “The men of the suffrage era were willing to abandon their role in that they were willing to give up half of their electoral power to women. The Nineteenth Amendment can be seen as the point in American history when the fathers ceased to sit in the gates as representatives of their families’ interests.  Individualism and self-interest would now be the approach to the ballot box.”
