Women’s Equality Day

“Men, their rights, and nothing more;
Women, their rights, and nothing less.”
-Susan B. Anthony

Today marks the 95th anniversary of the 19th amendment, which passed with Republican majorities in the House and Senate and finally granted women the right to vote.

Because of suffragists like Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Lucretia Mott and Susan B. Anthony, women have a voice in our national political system today. These courageous individuals, and the countless others who joined their ranks, inspired generations of stronger, more empowered women.

Their legacy lives on. As we celebrate this momentous moment in our history, House Republicans know that the work has only just begun. We will continue to do all we can in our effort to empower women to embrace every opportunity available to them at work and at home.

Happy Women’s Equality Day!
