Women's Equality Day

Women’s Equality day is celebrated on August 26 to commemorate the passage of the 19th Amendment which gave women equal voting rights to men. The passing of the 19th Amendment took considerable time, as it was first introduced in 1878. It took years of campaigning on the part of suffragettes for the bill to finally be passed due to the fierce opposition that they faced from established political and social leaders of the time.
