Women’s Equality Day encourages and promotes equal rights and opportunities for women. This observance also commemorates the Nineteenth Amendment of the US Constitution. It prohibits denying the right to vote according to gender.
Women's Equality is critical to the economic development of a country. According to a study done in 2019 by EquitableGrowth.org, about 110 billion was lost in wages annually due to women having fewer opportunities in the United States.
