Ready to be inspired to use your voice and your vote? Hear from champion of democracy and lifelong social justice activist Virginia Kase Solomón, the CEO of the League of Women Voters (LWV). The LWV is the 103-year-old organization that formed just before the 19th Amendment was ratified, and women won the vote. That was on August 26, 1920. While every year that date is marked as Women’s Equality Day, for the second year, the LWV is declaring it Women’s Inequality Day because of the historic challenges women and allies currently face. The campaign—#WID23—calls on the federal government to pass voting rights legislation, add the Equal Rights Amendment to the US Constitution, and restore reproductive rights to women and those who can become pregnant.
Tune in as Virginia sits down with hosts Dee Martin and Kendall Mitchell to discuss #WID23, the critical role of Black women historically and today in the fight for democracy, and the qualities of being an effective leader. Don’t miss Virginia’s sage advice on “walking in your purpose” and not sweating the small stuff!
What You Can Do
The Latest from the League
August 26, otherwise known as Women's Equality Day, marks the anniversary of the passage of the 19th amendment.
Yet today, fewer rights than they'd had in decades. In August 2022, we launched our campaign for Women's Inequality Day, uniting to demand that lawmakers restore and protect our rights.
For the second year in a row, the League has declared August 26 to be Women’s Inequality Day because of the historic challenges women and our allies currently face.
