August 26th is such a special day for all women in America, a day that embarks equality for all of us. Approximately 9 decades ago women in the United States were granted the right to vote on this day, when the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution was certified.
In this blog I want to honor all those brave women who stood up for the right of equality, the right to vote. In my opinion this article from SFGate acknowledges all outstanding women from various fields who took a bold step to create history. I also want to share a short video by U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader, who shares her experience as a woman at Harvard Law School back in 1950’s.
We definitely have come a long way from 1920 and have been able to move the needle for women, but still have a long way to go especially in gender diversity. Today, as a Diversity professional I feel even more inspired and passionate to be part of a movement that aims to create a gender balance at a workplace.
