If you said “Women’s Equality Day,” you’d be right.And if you said it’s the 95th anniversary of the date in 1920 when women’s right to vote officially entered the U.S. Constitution, you’d be spot on....more
www.TheFeministBride.com On August 18th, women celebrated the ratification of the 19th amendment in 1920 stating that is is unlawful for any United States citizen to be denied the right to vote based on sex. Women have been enjoying the right to vote for 91 years. And today, women are celebrating Women's Equality Day, which honors not only the 1920 amendment, but also "calls attention to women’s continuing efforts toward full equality."

Yesterday, August 26, was Women's Equality Day. (It also was my non-blogging friend's birthday, so a big shout out to Dr. P, who probably spent the day operating, as she is a surgeon. Which is a good way, I think, to celebrate women's equality, but as usual I digress.) RosieRed23 at Spare Candy explains that:

With the Democratic National Convention in full swing and Women's Equality Day, marking the 88th anniversary of women gaining the right to vote, celebrated on Aug. 26, women's issues have been a hot topic lately.
Her orange pantsuit might be a Glamour magazine “don’t”,

Democratic National Convention, it was so right, so Hillary.

Goldwater’s thick-rimmed black glasses, Winston Churchill’s smelly
cigars, Joe Biden’s train tickets.
Today is the 31st birthday of one of my closest friends. Dr. P is a woman I admire greatly. She finished her five year surgery residency this past June and is a currently a Fellow at a prestigious hospital in Florida. Today also happens to be slightly more well known across the blogosphere as Women’s Equality Day, which I find very fitting because so many of Dr. P’s achievements would likely not have been possible if not for ongoing pressure for gender equality.
