It's Women's Equality Day!

It commemorates the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, granting women the right to vote.  It was certified on August 26th, 1920.  It followed decades of efforts by women suffragettes and other groups.  Those efforts went all the way back to the first women's rights convention at Seneca Falls, New York, in 1948.

This day was created by a Joint Resolution of the United States Congress in 1971.

There are a number of ways to celebrate this day.  You might want to celebrate the accomplishments made in gaining the right to vote and towards equality for women. Some women's rights groups ask that you continue to be involved in pursuing full and equal rights for women in all areas and in all issues.
