About Women's Equality Day
On August 26th, 1920, forty-two years after it was introduced, the 19th Amendment was signed and women in the United States were given the right to vote. To commemorate this day, Bella Abzug established a Joint Resolution and Congress designated August 26th as Women's Equality Day.
