Equality Day August 26, 2014: Your Story Matters! Celebrate it!
Since 1971, Women’s Equality Day has occurred on August 26. This date marks the day in 1920 when the Nineteenth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution was certified and became law. Thus, universal franchise to vote was guaranteed in America. This year the Council welcomes you to share your stories about politics and women’s rights or about other landmark legislation such as the 1972 passage of the educational amendments to Title IX or the 1972 "displaced homemakers" legislation.
On Equality Day, August 26, 2014, Your Story Matters! Celebrate It! Between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m., come to the terrace outside the Grand Rapids Art Museum. There you will find GGRWHC members waiting and eager to audio record your story. We will help you get started with some basic questions and give you 15 - 20 minutes to tell your story. We promise the experience will be very informal and fun! Feel free to bring along another important woman in your life. . . .
