  • 2019 Women's Equality Day
    Updated On: Aug 26, 2019

    TODAY, 8/26, marks the 99th anniversary of the certification of the 19th Amendment which granted many American women the right to vote. 

    The passage of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution was the culmination of a massive, peaceful, 72 year-long 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. Women circulated countless petitions, gave speeches, published newspapers, and traveled the country to win support. They were frequently ridiculed, harassed and sometimes attacked by mobs and police. Some were thrown in jail, and then treated brutally when they protested. Finally, on August 26, 1920, their goal was achieved with the 19th Amendment. Women had won the right to vote and hold public office. The observance of Women’s Equality Day celebrates this vital historic moment while also calling attention to women’s continuing efforts toward full equality.

    How can you celebrate women's equality day?

    Support Fair Fight 2020. Voter suppression is still a very real issue across the United States and was made very clear during the 2018 elections in Georgia which were rife with irregularities. Utilizing the outrage from these unfair elections Fair Fight 2020 advocates for election reform, engages in voter education, and encourages turnout in order to secure the voting rights of all Americans.

    Sign the petition to elevate Women's Equality Day to a Federal Holiday. By recognizing this day as federally important, we will be commemorating and celebrating the efforts of the women that have come before us as pioneers and activists. This initiative will bring us a step closer towards balancing the scale and commemorating efforts that support inclusiveness and equality.

    Educate yourself and others. Check out this Equality Day brochure put together by the National Women's History Alliance (NWHA) for some information about the day and why it's important.

    Vote! Voting in your local, state, and/or your federal elections is an excellent way to honor the brave women and men who campaigned for voter equality. The League of Women Voters offers resources to register voters, as well as information useful for voters at

    We hope you will use Women's Equality Day to draw inspiration from the strong, history-making women who came before us to strengthen the movement for women's equality that continues to this day.
