Women Celebrate Achievements, Work Toward Progress
Women’s Equality Day is held annually on August 26th. That’s the anniversary of the 1920 certification of the 19th Amendment, recognizing women’s right to vote. Fifty years later, women staged demonstrations to demand equality in education and employment. At the beginning of the 21st Century, women in Rapid City’s Democracy in Action started observing Women’s Equality Day, as they did Tuesday night at Main Street Square.
