Women’s Equality Day

First recognized in 1973 by the U.S. Congress, this day commemorates the 1920 certification of the 19th Amendment, which granted women the right to vote.


“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.” 

—Eleanor Roosevelt (1884-1962)

First lady of the United States 1933-1945

“A woman is human. She is not better, wiser, stronger, more intelligent, more creative, or more responsible than a man. Likewise, she is never less. Equality is a given. A woman is human.” 

–Vera Nazarian (1966 –  )

Russian-American writer
