Women’s Equality Day – August 26 :-
All citizens have the right to vote, which is the foundation of democracy, but this wasn’t always the case. Up until recently, the majority of nations would not allow women, who make up 50% of the population, to vote. Early in the 19th century, women started to campaign for the right to vote in order to assert their voice. In the United States, the states decided who was eligible to vote. The 1920 ratification of the 19th Amendment guarantees that all people, regardless of gender, have the right to vote. Women’s Equality Day commemorates the accomplishments of women’s rights advocates and serves as a reminder of the particular daily hardships that women experience. We must educate women to give them the power to stand up to oppression, and in order to support their education, they need money that can aid.
WOMEN’S EQUALITY DAY’S HISTORY :-
Every year on August 26, Women’s Equality Day honors the achievement of women’s suffrage in the United States and serves as a reminder of the struggles encountered by the courageous women who overcame violence and discrimination to advance the cause of women.
Early in the 19th century, American women organized to demand political rights and representation despite the fact that they often could not inherit property and earned just half as much as males in whatever employment that were available.
As the movement spread over the world in the early 1900s, a number of nations, including Finland, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom, authorized voting for women. The U.S. Constitution’s 19th Amendment was first proposed in 1878.
