Each year, Aug. 26 marks the day that the United States Congress passed the 19th Amendment in 1920, officially granting women the right to vote. “This was the culmination of a massive, peaceful civil rights movement by women that had its formal beginnings in 1848 at the world’s first women’s rights convention,” the National Women’s History Project writes.

Women’s Equality Day celebrates this momentous day in history by remembering influential leaders, activists and policymakers that continue to make this world a better place for women. It celebrates how far women have come and recognizes the many things that are still yet to come in the fight towards gender equality. Many took to social media to commemorate the occasion.
