From the Editor The summer of 2015 will bring vacations and a change of pace for some. It is, however, a good time to reflect on who we are, what we really do, and what beliefs guide our actions as League members.
The summer of 1920 had no interruption in store for the League either. Both the LWV and the 19th Amendment came into existence 95 years ago. Rep. Bella Abzug (D-NY) initiated Women’s Equality Day in 1971; U.S. Congress designated August 26 as “Women’s Equality Day.” The date was selected to commemorate the passage of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, granting women the right to vote. Read the full text of the Joint Resolution of Congress, 1971 to learn the history in the making that day.
