It's Women's Equality Day today and rather than make it about purely about making men and women equal, I want to focus on bringing women UP.â ÂÂÂ

The date to celebrate this day was chosen to commemorate the day when Secretary of State Bainbridge Colby in 1920 signed the proclamation granting American women the constitutional right to vote. Following the 1970 nationwide Women's Strike for Equality and in 1973 again as the battles over the Equal Rights Amendment continued, Congresswoman Bella Abzug of New York introduced a resolution to designate August 26 as Women’s Equality Day.
