Winning the Right to Vote
August 26th - Women’s Equality Day
In 1920, women won a 72-year political campaign that began at Seneca Falls in 1848. Ratified on August 26th, the 19th Amendment, the Woman Suffrage Amendment to the United States Constitution secured full voting rights for women.
In 1971, Representative Bella Abzug was able to get a Congressional Resolution passed that designated August 26th as Women's Equality Day to commemorate the passage of the 19th Amendment, the Woman Suffrage Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
