Celebrate Women’s Equality Day with AAUW and the Newseum @ Newseum | Washington | District of Columbia | United States

Saturday, Aug. 26 is Women’s Equality Day. The date commemorates the passage of the 19th Amendment, which secured women’s right to vote, on Aug. 26, 1920. It is also a time to acknowledge that the 19th Amendment didn’t include all women, and that 97 years later the fight for gender equality is still far from over.

This Women’s Equality Day, join AAUW and the Newseum to reflect on the past while championing justice today. Visitors can enjoy a day at the Newseum filled with fun activities, including:

  • Suffragist button and sash-making stations
  • Outdoor exhibit on women’s suffrage
  • Interactive Polaroid photo booth
  • “Take action” station
  • Discount on AAUW membership
