It’s All About Women Power on August 26th
It was in 1973 when the United States Congress designated August 26th as Women’s Equality Day. Originally, the purpose of the celebration was to commemorate the 1920 certification of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, granting women the right to vote. The struggle for women’s suffrage that started in the early 1800s finally bore fruit on August 26th, 1920, when Secretary of State Bainbridge Colby signed the proclamation granting American women the constitutional right to vote.
This was a huge victory for gender equality, one that took decades of marching, writing, and lobbying from several generations of women.
Now, Women’s Equality Day doesn’t only commemorate the 19th Amendment’s passage but also brings attention to the ongoing battle for women to be regarded as truly equal to men in terms of economic opportunities and participation in nation-building. The non-official holiday also serves as a reminder of the struggles made by women’s rights activists as well as a celebration of the important contributions women have made in our society.
Take part in the celebration of Women’s Equality Day on August 26th. You can do this by helping empower women all around you in any way you can, both big and small. Veteran Car Donations has compiled five sure-fire ways of doing this:
- Show appreciation to your women colleagues.
Show the women you work with how much you appreciate their efforts. Make their day by telling them that they’re doing a good job and acknowledging their achievements.
- Support women business owners.
If you know of a woman running a small business, go ahead and show your support by becoming her customer. If there’s something you need and she has it in her store, contribute to her venture’s success by buying even just one item.
- Remind the important women in your life how much you care for them.
Tell your mom, sister, wife, and other women close to you that you truly love and care for them. You can convey your sentiment by calling or texting them. However, expressing your feelings to them face to face is much, much better.
- Post about women’s equality on social media.
Social media provides us with an effective platform to easily reach wide audiences. Help bring attention to women’s equality and empowerment by posting about it.
- Speak out when you see someone maltreating women.
Don’t be afraid to raise your voice when you see someone unfairly treating women. Support women’s causes and help educate people against gender bias.
