YOUR STORIES: Share the stories of trailblazing women in your lives

Tuesday, Aug. 18, marks the 100th anniversary of the adoption of the 19th Amendment guaranteeing women the right to vote.

To commemorate the occasion, the Dayton Daily News will be telling the story of Dayton’s suffragists. But we also would like to tell the stories of the trailblazing women in your lives — Dayton-area women, living or dead, celebrated or known primarily within the family circle — who taught you important lessons about the rights and dignity of women.

Please submit brief essays (200 words or less) to Mary McCarty at Selected essays will be published in your own words.
