Women’s Equality Day #ContentWorthSharing

Women’s Equality Day is an American holiday that celebrates equal rights for women. In the USA, it was first celebrated in 1972 and designated by Congress in 1973. It is marked by women given the right to vote on August 26, 1920.

“Today, as we celebrate the anniversary of this hard-won achievement and pay tribute to the trailblazers and suffragists who moved us closer to a more just and prosperous future, we resolve to protect this constitutional right and pledge to continue fighting for equality for women and girls.” 

– Former US President, Barack Obama
