Celebrate Women's Equality Day and connect with our powerful community.

Wednesday, Aug 26 2020

Today is an important day that speaks directly to our commitment to empowering women. It's Women’s Equality Day, which commemorates the 1920 adoption of the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution granting women the right to vote.

In honor of this occasion, read Hadassah's recent policy statement reaffirming our commitment to individual and collective civic engagement, and commit to helping get the word out about the importance of voting, so that our voices are heard. Read about our #HadassahVotes initiative and share on social media. Then take part in our outstanding upcoming programs to celebrate our community even more.
