Today is Women's Equality Day, a day that rejoices women winning the right to vote (August 26, 1920) in the United States. On this day, the 19th Amendment to the Constitution was ratified and "Women's Equality Day" was initiated (August 26, 1971) and established by Presidential Proclamation and reaffirmed annually.
Though there is still a ways to go, there is much to celebrate. May we always have strength in our femininity, character in our struggles, and peace in our values. Here are five communities full of positive influence, resources, and encouragement for every woman:
