NATIONAL WOMEN’S EQUALITY DAY

On August 26, 1920, women in the United States were granted the right to vote when the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution was certified.  (The amendment had actually been introduced many years earlier in 1878)

WOMEN’S EQUALITY DAY is a day proclaimed annually by the President of the United States to commemorated the granting of the vote to women throughout the country on an equal basis with men.  Since 1971, when legislation was first introduced in Congress by Bella Abzug, every president has published a proclamation for Women’s Equality Day.  This resolution was passed, designating each August 26 as Women’s Equality Day.

I vote at every National election and most State and very few local. I know that's not good.

As far as I know all the women in my family have voted.

I vote. I don't know about the other woman in my extended family. DD just turned 18 in July and I believe she plans to register so she can vote.
