The lunch wasn't the only event today to celebrate women's rights. There was also a march in Terre Haute Tuesday, starting on Indiana State University's campus. This event was sponsored by the League of Women Voters of Vigo County. Organizers say educating younger generations is a right and a responsibility.

Bianca Gambill, 45 Indiana House District State Representative, says everyone needs to remember what women went through to get the right to vote, "We didn't have the education or the political forethought to express our opinions and so we fought. We've been imprsioned, we've been beaten, we've been starved to death, force fed. And that this is something we should not take lightly."
