August 26 is Women's Equality Day

Women's Equality Day commemorates the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, granting women the right to vote.

In 1971, at the urging of U.S. Representative Bella Abzug (D-NY), Congress designated August 26 each year as “Women’s Equality Day.” The date was chosen to commemorate the passage of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution on August 26, 1920, which gave women the right to vote. But women still have a long way to go to gain true equality; women are still paid less on the job and charged more for everything from dry cleaning to insurance. So wear a t-shirt that proclaims your support for equal rights for women!
