I think the vote can be, in Emma Goldman’s words, “fetishized”. I think it can be seen as a panacea for correcting all the ills of patriarchy. As we’ve seen over the lat century, it’s definitely not that. That said, it is but one tool in the arsenal of women’s fight for liberation. It is imperative that we remember the women who fought and died for this, while also realizing that simply relying on voting isn’t going to get us where we need to be.
