For many people heading to the polls on Tuesday, voting in this historic election means more than marking a ballot. After leaving the polls, voters took to Twitter and used #DedicateYourVoteToAWoman to honor the women who inspired them to vote.

The hashtag, created by writer Ashley Ford, trended as people shared stories about their grandmothers, mothers, daughters and other women who prompted them to do their civic duty.
