Women’s Equality Day 2020

 

It is observed on 26 August to commemorate the Nineteenth Amendment adopted in the  United States in 1920.

On this day in 1920, the Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution was adopted that provides women the right to vote. This act stopped the federal government and states from preventing people from the right to vote based on their sex. The day also celebrates the achievements of women’s rights activists and reminds us of the daily struggles that women face.
