Happy Women’s Equality Day from the American Museum of Women’s History Congressional Commission!


This day honors the anniversary of the 19th Amendment becoming law, legally giving women the right to vote nation-wide. The suffrage movement was a struggle that lasted seventy-two years, with most of those who started it in 1848 not around to see it finally succeed in 1920. The Commission recognizes the importance of these suffragists, along with the other women who fought for equality. Their tireless efforts have greatly contributed to this country’s history and character. We hope to one day honor their contributions with an American Museum of Women’s History in Washington, D.C
