National Women's Equality Day

Today, August 26, is Women’s Equality Day, which commemorates the 1920 adoption of the Nineteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution that prohibits the states and the federal government from denying the right to vote to citizens of this nation on the basis of sex.


Among the local events scheduled to mark Women’s Equality Day is the #WChallenge with supporting partner Women’s March San Francisco. At noon, WChallenge founder and San Francisco City Administrator Carmen Chu along with other women leaders and allies are scheduled to gather on the steps of San Francisco City Hall to hear about ways of supporting women’s wellbeing and community health, as well as expanding the representation of women. #SFbaytimes
