Celebrating Women’s Equality Day & the Right to Vote

Do you know that when the U.S. was founded in 1776, women didn’t have the same rights as men, including the right to vote (can you say unfair!)? It wasn't until August 26, 1920, after a 70-year battle (yes, 70 years!) that women finally earned the right to vote. So every August 26 we celebrate Women's Equality Day, honoring not just women working for women's equality, but women and girls everywhere!
