According to the National Women’s History Project, Women’s Equality Day commemorates the passage of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which granted the right to vote to women. The amendment was first introduced in 1878. In 1971, the U.S. Congress designated August 26 as Women’s Equality Day.
