Women’s Day of Equality

“At the behest of Rep. Bella Abzug (D-NY), in 1971 the U.S. Congress designated August 26 as “Women’s Equality Day.”
The date was selected to commemorate the 1920 passage of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, granting women the right to vote. This was the culmination of a massive, peaceful civil rights movement by women that had its formal beginnings in 1848 at the world’s first women’s rights convention, in Seneca Falls, New York. The observance of Women’s Equality Day not only commemorates the passage of the 19th Amendment, but also calls attention to women’s continuing efforts toward full equality. Workplaces, libraries, organizations, and public facilities now participate with Women’s Equality Day programs, displays, video showings, or other activities.”     From: http://nwhp.org/resourcecenter/equalityday.php

This is a day for all women to reflect and celebrate.  At A Woman’s Place every day is one where each woman is inspired, motivated, encouraged, challenged, and cheered on to do her best for herself and the world.  To own and expect her rights as a human being.

It really wasn’t all that long ago when many of the rights we take for granted today were not ours.  So together we stand, tall and proud, in yellow and white, the colors symbolizing this important commemorative day and we hope that every woman enjoys her day (and lifetime) of equality!

From all of us at A Woman’s Place –  Happy Women’s Equality Day!
