Saturday, August 26, is Women’s Equality Day. The date commemorates the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment, which secured women’s right to vote, on August 26, 1920. It is also a time to acknowledge that the Nineteenth Amendment didn’t include all women and that 97 years later the fight for gender equality is still far from over.

Women’s Equality Day marks the anniversary of when the 19th Amendment was ratified. Celebrating our right to vote isn’t enough.
It’s been a long time since women had to sit behind screens in the college classroom in order not to “disrupt” their male classmates, but we still haven’t reached full equity in higher education.
