Women’s Equality Day 2023

August 1, 2023 - August 31, 2023

Women's Equality Day 2023

The Library and the Turning Pages Media Club encourage you and your students to celebrate Women’s Equality Day (August 26).

 Women’s Equality Day is celebrated in the United States on August 26 to commemorate the 1920 adoption of the Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution, which prohibits the states and the federal government from denying the right to vote to citizens of the United States based on sex.

Check out the Women’s Studies guide to learn about Women’s Equality Day, the Suffrage Movement, and the gender pay gap. Make sure to scroll through the slideshow to find out how the pay gap affects women of different demographics and life stages. For example, did you know that Native American women only make an average of $0.51 for every dollar paid to a man?

Find out much more by visiting the Library when it reopens on August 14 or go online to https://libguides.rccc.edu/women.
