On Friday, the 19th Amendment celebrated 97 years since it was ratified, granting women the right to vote. 

Geraldine, or Jerry, Emmett remembers that day in 1920. She was 6 years old at the time and just celebrated her 103rd birthday last month.

She’s featured in a new book titled "We the Resilient: Wisdom for America from Women Born Before Suffrage." The Show's Annika Cline introduces us to her.
