Women Equality history

      Today, when Americans celebrate Women's Equality Day, the United States continue to advocate for women's rights around the world.

      The holiday was introduced by Bella Abzug and was first celebrated in 1971.

      Bella Abzug (July 24, 1920 - March 31, 1998) was an American politician, lawyer, social activist, writer, news commentator and feminist with Russian roots (her parents emigrated to the United States from Russia). In 1970 she became the first Jewish woman elected to U.S. Congress where she worked from 1971 till 1976. She is remembered not only for her political activity, but also because of her large hat both items attracted particular attention to Mrs. Abzug.

      But the history of establishing Women's Equality Day goes back to the middle of the 19th century. In 1848 a group of enthusiasts gathered for a conference on women's rights in Seneca Falls and proclaimed that "all men and women are created equal" and that "creator endowed them with certain unalienable rights."

      The gathering turned into a national movement that led to the adoption, in 1920, of the 19th amendment (Woman Suffrage Amendment) to the U.S. Constitution, which gave women full voting rights.

      The adoption of this amendment was the climax of a mass movement for civil rights of women, which had lasted for many decades in a row. However, it took many a year to see the implementation of this law into practice, so that all women regardless of color or race could fully enjoy their rights.

      It is a well-known fact that in some countries, women are still facing such extreme human rights violations, as female circumcision; many are forced into prostitution or into getting married as a child in premature age.
