Women’s Equality Day, Every Day

Back to What We Think

Today marks Women's Equality Day in the United States, which was introduced almost 100 years ago to commemorate the 19th Amendment affording women the right to vote. 

Almost a century later, it stands as a reminder of not only what women have achieved, but how far society still has to go to reach true equality.
