Today is Women’s Equality Day, a day which commemorates the adoption of the 19th Amendment into the Constitution. If history tells us anything, it’s that women have been working hard for over a century to ensure their right to vote – a right we’re still protecting today to ensure that we all have an equitable chance to make our voices heard. #WomensEqualityDay #YWomenVote
