August 26 has been observed since 1971, when the U.S. Congress designated the
day to honor women's continuing efforts toward equality. The date is
historically significant: It was on August 26, 1920, that the 19th Amendment
to the U.S. Constitution was finally ratified, granting women the right to
vote after their 72-year campaign.
