Women's Equality Day: Home

Women's Equality Day

Women’s Equality Day is celebrated on August 26 in recognition of the passing of 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution in 1920 granting women in the U.S. the right to vote. In addition to commemorating this milestone, the day also celebrates broader efforts of the women’s movement and other civil rights movements toward gender equality and liberation in the U.S. and around the world.
