Women's Equality Day - August 26

August 26 is designated as Women's Equality Day. The United States President declares this day each year to commemorate giving women full voting rights equal to men. The 19th Amendment was introduced in 1878 and was certified on August 26, 1920 to the United States Constitution. Legislation was established in Congress by Bella Abzug. Since 1971 every president has published a proclamation for Women's Equality Day.


Celebrating Women's Equality Day

Tri-Signed LetterSince 1775, the roles of women in the Army have changed dramatically. 16 percent of the Active Army is made up of Women and Women serve in 95 percent of all Army occupations. Join us in honoring those who fought tirelessly for women's right to vote. 

The Chief of Staff of the Army, Sergeant Major of the Army, and the Secretary of the Army have signed a letter to mark this August 26 Women's Equality Day.
