August 26 is Women’s Equality Day in the United States.
Women’s Equality Day commemorates the 1920 adoption of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, granting the right to vote to (most) women. (Women of color could not legally vote until 1965)
The amendment reads:
The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex. Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.
Today all those who championed women’s equality and fought for voting rights should be celebrated. Women’s equality is an ongoing issue and the fight continues especially in today’s environment.
Have a wonderful night and day!
Be kind and have fun posting!
