background shadows

August 26, 2016 marks the 96th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment guaranteeing women the right to vote and the 42nd anniversary of the New Jersey Division on Women.

Following more than 70 years of peaceful civil rights protests, the United States Congress ratified the 19th Amendment in 1920.  A Joint Resolution of Congress in 1971, established August 26 as Women's Equality Day.
