    FUDGE asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute.) Ms. FUDGE. Mr. Speaker, on Sunday, March 3, 2013, the women of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated, and other women's organizations led the reenactment of the historic Women's Suffrage march down Pennsylvania Avenue. In March 1913, Delta Sigma Theta's 22 founders engaged in their first public act by joining other women in a ``spirit of protest against the political organization of society from which women were excluded.'' While we have achieved a great deal in the last 100 years, it is quite evident that our journey is not complete. Women still deserve equal pay for equal work. Women deserve to control their own reproductive rights.



    We still have to fight for the rights of all Americans to participate in the electoral process. The struggle continues.
