As we celebrate Women’s Equality Day, we recognize that the constitutional “We the people” didn’t always apply to all of the country’s people. Yesterday marked 100 years since women finally won the right to vote. However, this victory was far from complete. It wasn’t until 1965 that the voting rights of Black women and men were also protected. And even still, voters fight to protect their constitutional rights.
With that in mind, and the struggle our country is currently undergoing, we understand the lack of fanfare marking this momentous event in modern feminism – a feminism that celebrates diversity.
Happy (belated) Women’s Equality Day!
