Women's Equality Day is proclaimed on August 26 each year by the United States President to commemorate the giving of the vote to women. Every president has published a proclamation for Women's Equality Day since 1971 when legislation was first introduced in Congress by Bella Abzug. Let's tip our hats to Bella, the Lady of Many Hats.
