  1. That’s cool! I didn’t realize there was a day for it. I work in a predominantly male environment, but I’m thankful that I have the opportunity to work in my occupation at all. The playing field is evening out, which is great. 🙂

    • Yes. I’m curious and excited for the centennial in 2020. The goal is to have a woman on the $20. Womenon20s.org did a poll/survey and Harriet Tubman was the people’s choice.


  2. How did I not know that Women’s Equality Day is today?

    Yay for equality!!!!! We need more of it!

    I wish I could’ve done something to celebrate but I’ve been making downloadable PDFs. I guess that counts though because I’m trying to furthering my career as a woman.

  3. I didn’t know there was a Women’s Equality Day. I’m glad there is one. I always vote, and I bring my kids with me so they’ll grow up to be voters, too. Women have made progress with equality, but there’s still a long way to go. Forward, ho!!

    • Yes, we still have a ways to go. And that’s so great that you bring your kids to vote. I’ve brought mine on occasion, when I’m able to. It’s always best to instill in them from an early age the importance of voting.
