In anticipation of Women’s Equality Day, an annual designation commemorating the struggle for women’s suffrage, the 1920 adoption of the 19th Amendment into the U.S. Constitution, and the ongoing quest for equality, we wanted to know what people thought about women’s equality today; we wanted to know… does women’s equality really matter?
So we put the question out there, and got flooded with responses. Video messages streamed in from people from all over – women, girls, men and boys all using their individual voices to amplify a collective message to the world.
This is why women’s equality is more important than ever.
Origin Of Women’s Equality Day
In 1971, Representative Bella Abzug (D-NY), one of the fearless trailblazers featured in our Feminism At Work illustration, introduced the bill designating August 26th of each year as Women’s Equality Day.
