The Department of Records Celebrates Women’s Equality Day:

In 1971, at the behest of Bella Abzug, Congress declared August 26 as “Women’s Equality Day.” The day commemorates the enactment of the 19th amendment which gave women the right to vote.  But even more, in 1971 the day honored the efforts of contemporary women activists who re-launched the fight for equality throughout society.  

In 2014, we continue to advocate gender equality. For example, women earn 77 cents for every dollar earned by men, on average.   Women are often the primary caregivers in 70% of households.  This struggle informs the work of Mayor Bill de Blasio’s administration.  The administration’s programs such as comprehensive paid sick leave and universal pre-Kindergarten are major advances that will positively impact working women and families.  We celebrate these programs and continue to advance the fight for equity.

Between Women’s Equality Day in 2014 and 2020, the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage, DORIS will coordinate a multi-year series of events celebrating the empowerment of women in New York City. Learn more and see more photographs here.

"Women’s Equality Day is not just a celebration; it is a call to action," writes Susan Cochran, president of the League of Women Voters of Maryland, in an Op-Ed for the Baltimore Sun.
On Aug. 26, 1920, Congress certified passage of the 19th Amendment, which gave women the right to vote. While significant progress has been made through legislation and court action, equality did not automatically come with the right to vote, Cochran notes.
"The message of Women’s Equality Day is that the vote is precious and we should use it to continue to pursue the goal: full equality," says Cochran.
