We Honor the Women Whose Fight for Equal Rights Continues

With your help, we will educate, inspire, and empower present and future generations to remain vigilant in the quest for equal rights.

Women were not included in the Constitution until the 19th Amendment.

The ratification of the 19th Amendment led to the largest single one-day increase of potential voters in the history of the United States.

It took 72 years to pass and ratify the 19th Amendment, and the Equal Rights Amendment has yet to be adopted to this day.
