Celebrating Women’s Equality Day and These Trailblazing Female Voices

August 26 of each year marks the celebration of Women’s Equality Day. This special day commemorates the passage of the 19th Amendment, which gave women the right to vote nationally. Congress made this day official in 1971 as a national day celebrating  the importance of the women’s suffrage movement and the work to secure and expand equal rights today. Many of our speakers have played a vital role in the pursuit of a gender-equal world and continue to challenge us to be more alert, informed and become catalysts for change. Check out some of our top inspirational, trailblazing female voices:
