History of Women's Equality Day
Women's Equality Day celebrates the anniversary of the 1920 adoption of the Nineteenth Amendment to the US constitution which gave women the right to vote.
It was first celebrated in 1971 and was later designated by congress and recognized by all subsequent Presidents. It was one of the first major steps towards equal participation and opportunities for women. Which is why it's such an important event to celebrate and recognize how far we've come but also highlight inequalities that still linger.
