Women’s Equality Day: Celebrating Suffrage & Equality

https://us.fotolia.com/id/58976812

Celebrate History & Progress Today!

95 years ago today, the United States of America adopted the 19th Amendment, finally giving women the right to vote for which the suffrage movement had lobbied for so many years. Today, thinking about women being unable to vote sounds downright crazy, but that doesn’t mean we’ve achieved equality.

To help us on the path towards equal rights, equal opportunity, and equal wages, Congress has designated August 26th as Women’s Equality Day. On this day, not only do we remember the historic decision to enfranchise women, we also remember the August 26th, 1970 Women’s Strike for Equality when women joined together to demand they be offered the same chances at jobs and education as men, and that 24-hour child care centers be established to be one of the goals.  While today we have more and more women in the workplace, the government, and other positions of power, women still earn just 77 cents to every dollar a man earns.

Take the opportunity to spread awareness about gender inequality in our country and let your community know you care about progress!

At The Maria Sanchez Show, we’re passionate about helping America and the globe move towards a free and equal world where everyone—regardless of sex—has the chance to live their best life!
