Women's Equality Day

Federal Proclamation

Celebrating women’s suffrage (the right to vote) and the 19th Amendment to the US Constitution, which was signed on August 26, 1920. The Amendment was first introduced in 1878 after the unanimous 1875 Supreme Court decision of Minor v. Happersett that the right-to-vote clause of the 14th Amendment did not also apply to women. It took 41 years and many attempts before women’s suffrage became law.
