Seneca Falls, New York, 1948. This is where the first Women’s Rights Convention was held which launched the movement for women’s equality. 51 years ago, the U.S. Congress designated today, August 26th, as Women’s Equality Day. This day commemorates the passage of the 19th Amendment (also known as the ‘Susan B. Anthony Amendment’) to the U.S. Constitution and the first-day women gained the right to vote. Today, we celebrate the wins for women. We acknowledge women’s suffrage and we are reminded of the many hurdles heroic women overcame while they faced violence and discrimination. Though the 19th Amendment was just a start, more people than ever are still fighting for women’s equality today.
As a women-owned business, IQ Wired is beyond grateful for the work that women put in before us. Today, we continue their journey and keep fighting for women’s equality.
