Women's Equality Day

#v4e, #WomensEqualityDay, #AmericaLetHillaryClintonDown, #EqualRightsAmendment

UPDATE: Happy 3rd Anniversary Revolving Door HR. On This Day on August 26th, 2016 in the midst of all the BULLYING on the Presidential Campaign Trail, I had had about enough & officially opened this webpage to join the fight for Equal Rights for WOMEN.

Women's Equality Day, is the recognition of the signing of the 19th Amendment granting Women the Right to Vote. We need one more state to Ratify the Equal Rights Amendment before it can be enacted into the US Constitution.

Women are still discriminated against as a CLASS OF PEOPLE to this day.

The date was chosen to commemorate the day in 1920 when Secretary of State Bainbridge Colby signed the proclamation granting American women the constitutional right to vote.

[1] In 1971, following the 1970 nationwide Women's Strike for Equality,[2] and again in 1973, as the battles over the Equal Rights Amendment continued, Congresswoman Bella Abzug of New York introduced a resolution to designate August 26 as Women’s Equality Day.[3]

On August 16, 1973, Congress approved H.J. Res. 52, which stated that August 26 would be designated as Women's Equality Day and that "the President is authorized and requested to issue a proclamation in commemoration of that day in 1920 on which the women in American were first guaranteed the right to vote".[4]

Ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment into the US Constitution would protect Women from this kind of discrimination on a Federal Level.
