The Chronicle Celebrates Woman’s Equality Day

Updated: Aug 27, 2023


Chronicle News Publisher Yanice Jackson pays tribute to Rosie the Riveter, an allegorical cultural icon in the United States who represents the women who worked in factories and shipyards during World War II.

 

The Chronicle News salute those who fought for the rights of all women. Women's Equality Day is celebrated in the United States on August 26 to commemorate the 1920 adoption of the Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution, which prohibits the states and the federal government from denying the right to vote to citizens of the United States on the basis of sex.


Woman's Equality Day was first celebrated in 1971, designated by Congress in 1973, and is proclaimed each year by the United States President. Thanks to all who advocate on behalf of others on their pursuit of happiness!
