These women born before suffrage share their thoughts on the Trump era

The last time I walked into Elizabeth Pula’s Queens, N.Y. home on Nov. 8, she informed me she wasn’t very happy. She was pulled up close to her TV listening to newscasters report election returns and it was becoming increasingly clear that Donald Trump would be the next president.

When I returned last month, the 97-year-old told me she’s been “devastated” over the election results since we last spoke. “I’ve been through so many elections and this one I just can’t get over,” she said. She was born in 1919, a year before the 19th amendment was ratified in 1920 and women were granted the right to vote.
