Women’s Equality Day in the USA

[By staff reporters]

Women’s Equality Day is celebrated in the United States on August 26th 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 and is proclaimed each year by the United States President.
