Women’s Equality Day

Women’s Equality Day is celebrated in the United States on August 26 to commemorate the 1920 adoption of the Nineteenth Amendment (Amendment XIX) to the United States Constitution, which prohibits the states and the federal government from denying the right to vote to citizens of the United States on the basis of sex. It was first celebrated in 1973 .

I’m proud to know (or know of) so many strong women, both cisgendered and transgendered.

Thanks for paving the way and showing us how it’s done. And thanks for being our ally as we struggle together.
