Last year on wonder | wander | women we blogged about the history behind celebrating Women's Equality Day on August 26.
This day marks National Women's Equality Day and the 96th anniversary of American women gaining the right to vote here in the United States of America.
This #womensequalityday remember what our vote means and make that vote count. The leaders we choose to represent us will determine our performance and progress. They set the tone for our nation's democratic and diplomatic efforts. Vote wisely.
Today women are voting more than men but hold political office in much smaller numbers. While women have outstripped men in voting booths since 1980, women still make up just about 20-25% of elected officials at the state and federal level.
This November, stand up and be counted - exercise our right to VOTE!
