In this episode, CEO & President of Concerned Women for America Penny Nance looks back at her CPAC 2019 experience, where she was joined by Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers and Dr. Ben Carson, in a moving panel that left a mark on this year’s amazing festivities, to discuss the dignity of every human life.

Editor’s Note: Seeking to highlight the fact that some states took a long time to ratify the 19th Amendment – some as late as 1984—Penny misspoke saying 14 states had not ratified it. All states eventually did.
She provided this summary for listeners:
Thirty-six states were needed to ratify the 19 Amendment, after Congress passed it (1919). Tennessee was that thirty-sixth state (1920).
Connecticut, Delaware, and Vermont ratified it within the next three years. Maryland in 1941. Alabama and Virginia in the 1950s. Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, North Carolina, and South Carolina between 1969 and 1971. And Mississippi was the last state to do so in 1984.
Alaska and Hawaii were not states then, but both supported it. Alaska had given women the right to vote years before (1913), and Hawaii expressed public support for it.
