August 26, otherwise known as Women's Equality Day, marks the anniversary of the certification of the 19th amendment, which granted some women the right to vote.
Yet today, women have fewer rights than they'd had in decades. To recognize this, we acknowledge Women's Inequality Day, uniting to demand that lawmakers restore and protect our rights by:
- Passing voting rights legislation;
- Adding the Equal Rights Amendment to the Constitution; and
- Restoring reproductive rights to women and those who can become pregnant.
Throughout August 2023, we're engaging in a digital campaign promoting the core messages of Women's Inequality Day (above) and encouraging people to sign our petition sharing our wish list for women's equality.
35 women-run organizations in the equal and voting rights movements joined us in publishing a full-page ad in the Washington Post to acknowledge Women's Inequality Day. Several also joined us in the above video, calling on our leaders to commit to equitable change.
