Montgomery Co. kids lead effort to educate people about women’s suffrage through service

March 31, 2021

A group of children in Montgomery County, Maryland, is leading the charge to educate other kids about the women’s suffrage movement through an organization called The Yellow Roses. Carolyn Deol, 10, is a member, along with her siblings, Silas and Norah, and her cousin. Deol said it’s important to teach her peers about the struggles women went thought to obtain equal rights. “It’s something that you have to be educated on, and not many kids are educated on it. And a lot of people think that just women always had the right to vote, but they didn’t, so I think it’s really important for them to understand how much they suffered and how hard it was and how long it took them,” Deol said.
