Women's Equality Day is August 26th.
Here at Women's eNews, we hope you have Women's Equality Day, August 26th, marked on your calendars. Eighty-seven years ago, on August 26, 1920, women gained the right to vote in the United States--because a single Tennessee legislator switched sides at the last moment.
To salute this historic event and Women's eNews' unfailing efforts to report the issues that directly impact women during each election campaign year, Women's eNews is hosting our first ever Women-Wise Election Coverage Campaign.
The election coverage campaign supports our mission to provide women and their allies the information they need to fully participate in every aspect of civil society; nothing could be more crucial to the mission than our coverage of political campaigns.
Please support our women-wise election coverage. Women's eNews has a special gift for our first 75 donors of $19.20 a month, commemorating the year we gained the right to vote in the United States (or a one-time gift of $230). Those who give $1,920 will be called on election night by Editor in Chief Rita Henley Jensen and read the election results in the races of their choice.
Here is our commitment to you:
