There’s a tendency, when looking back on the history of women’s suffrage in the United States, to assume that it was inevitable that women would get the right to vote: By the time Tennessee became the final state to ratify the 19th Amendment, on August 18, 1920, 15 states had already granted women suffrage, starting with Wyoming, which became a state in 1890.

On top of a busy legal career, Barrett enjoys a happy, supportive marriage and cares for seven children, two of whom were adopted as children from Haiti.

“The president has asked me to become

On Sunday night, the model shared several videos on her Instagram Story detailing the excessive bleeding that she has experienced throughout her pregnancy, and how it has put her baby boy in a precarious position.

“So, we all know I’ve been on bed rest for a few weeks. And that’s like super serious bed rest, like get up to quickly pee and that’s it. I would take baths twice a week, no showering… I was always, always bleeding,” Teigan began her series of posts.

“I’m about like halfway through pregnancy and the blood has been going on for like a month…maybe a little bit less than a month. But we’re talking like
