Happy Women's Equality Day! 💪

First recognized in 1973, National Women's Equality Day is celebrated annually on Aug. 26 to commemorate the adoption of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. This amendment gave women the right to vote. However, it is important to recognize, many women of color didn’t officially get that right until decades later. ⁠

Nearly 50 years later, we’re still celebrating the women in our lives on Aug. 26, the women that came before us, and acknowledging the work that still needs to be done in order to achieve true equality. 

We've curated a list of 9 inspiring quotes from iconic women to help you celebrate! Share your favorite one with the women in your life!

Audre Lorde: 'It is not our differences that divide us. It is our inability to recognize, accept and celebrate those differences.' Sheryl Sandberg: 'In the future, there will be no female leaders. There will just be leaders. Ruth Bader Ginsburg: 'Women will only have true equality when men share with them the responsibility of bringing up the next generation.'
