Women’s Equality Day: Things You Can Do to Take Action

Yesterday, we celebrated Women’s Equality Day honoring the hard-fought victory of the women’s suffrage movement. While we commemorate the day, it is important to know more about those who have advocated for gender equality through the years. But how else can we keep spreading the word after this historic holiday to become an advocate within our communities?

Here are some actionable items you can keep in mind to continue advocating for women each and every day!

-Your voice is your power: Social media can be a powerful tool and your voice matters — just like our ancestors fought hard for the right to vote, you can share stories or suffragette quotes to inspire!

-Sign the Women’s Equality Day petition: Guess what this would do? It will help August 26th be elevated to federal holiday status.

-Donations, ¡por favor! : Donate to causes you care about and causes that advocate for equality like National Organization for Women, or the Association for Women’s Rights In Development. Any financial contribution you can afford can make a huge difference. You can also donate your time and volunteer!

-Inclusivity, Inclusivity, Inclusivity! Make sure your efforts are always intersectional. 

-Know the history: Research the women’s suffrage movement. You can find good info from the Maryland Institute of Technology or brief biographies online of Suffragists.

And last but not least… Learn these quotes and share them with your friends:
