100 years ago, you didn’t have the right to vote in the U.S. if you were a woman. Women’s Equality day celebrates the passage of the 19th Amendment, which granted women the right to vote on August 26, 1920. Unfortunately, what many don’t know is that this was just for white women. Black women were not fully enfranchised until August 6, 1965. The women’s suffragist movement was successful in large part because a group of passionate women (and men) banded together to activate change, but we still have a long way to go for true intersectional gender equality.
