The Women’s History Alliance

The National Women’s History Project is proud to announce the establishment of a new Women’s History Alliance, which will help link women’s history advocates at the local, state, and federal level and significantly expand each group’s circle of influence. 

Open to individuals and organizations, this new effort will help connect educators, performers, keepers of historic sites, agencies, and organizations in their work recognizing women’s history and preparing for the Woman Suffrage Centennial in 2020. 

Building on the success of Women’s History Month, the primary goal of the new Alliance is to have Women’s Equality Day—August 26th, the anniversary of American women winning the right to vote—declared a federal holiday. This will be a serious challenge, but what better way to celebrate “Women’s Independence Day” and honor the inspiring non-violent movement that overcame tremendous odds to win civil rights to American women.
