Women’s Equality Day in the United States is August 26th and this year marks the 100th anniversary of women’s right to vote.

We celebrate this day by honoring the fearless Suffragettes and other activists who’ve worked on women’s rights to vote. On this day, we also set up goals to continue our work on ERA (Equal Rights Amendments)

The Declaration of Independence from 1776 is no longer relevant in the 21st century. It’s time to write Women in the Constitution.

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

This year we’re featuring an hour with Frederick Douglass, portrayed by Nathan Richardson, via Zoom on August 26th at 7 pm.

Frederic DouglassRichardson is a published author, performance poet, and Douglass historian.  He is now in his sixth year of the Frederick Douglass Speaking Tour, in which he portrays the former slave, writer, orator, and abolitionist.”  He was also an early feminist, fighting for women’s suffrage.  After his performance, the audience is invited to ask questions.  Invitations will be sent via email to all members of the League of Women Voters of Dare.
