Join us for a Birds of a Feather: Speed Networking Event Supporting WOMEN'S EQUALITY DAY: Honoring Those Who Fought Before ... And Continuing the Fight.

What better way to end WOMEN’S EQUALITY DAY this August 26 than revisiting how it came to be ... and continuing the discussion around the fight for equality that women around the globe still seek?

American women were granted the right to vote on August 26, 1920, when the 19th Amendment to the US Constitution was ratified. But this did not include non-white women. Astoundingly, women of color were not awarded suffrage for another 45 years, with the Voting Rights Act of 1965.

Consider what the word â€"equality” really means in the context of â€"Women’s Equality Day” when women remain on an unequal playing field and voter suppression continues to influence elections.

Come get a truer, fuller picture of the people and cultures and realities of our shared history and network with outstanding women who are making a difference.
