History of Women’s Equality Day

The movement for women’s suffrage started right before the Civil War in the United States. By the 1830s, most of the states in the U.S have extended voting rights from just rich, white, male property owners to just white men – regardless of how much property they owned. During this time, a variety of civil rights movements sprung up all across the United States. These movements included anti-slavery movements, temperance movements, and moral reformation movements. At the heart of all of these, women played a crucial role. However, many women were still imprisoned by the American ideal of the time that true women were pious and obedient.

In 1848, a group of abolitionists gathered in Seneca Falls, New York to talk about the problem of women’s rights. This group – which was mainly women but did have a few men in it as well – decided that American women were their own individuals who deserved their own political identities and weren’t merely extensions of their husbands or fathers. Over the next few years, this movement would continue to grow stronger and stronger. However, it began to once again lose momentum when the Civil War began. It momentarily took a back seat to the anti-slavery movements of the time. During the 1890s, the National American Woman Suffrage Association emerged and was headed by Elizabeth Cady Stanton. Before the end of the decade, Idaho and Utah had given women the right to vote.

In 1910, some of the other Western states began to give women the right to vote. However, many of the Eastern and Southern states refused to extend women the right to vote. Unfortunately, it would take until August 26th, 1920 before the 19th Amendment was added to the United States Constitution, thereby giving women the right to vote.  Fifty-one years later, in 1971, Rep. Bella Abzug would submit to the U.S. Congress a bill that would designate August 26th as Women’s Equality Day. Every year since then, the U.S President has honored the day with an Official Proclamation.

Women’s Equality Day Custom’s & Traditions

Today, Women’s Equality Day can be celebrated by remembering by remembering the women who have fought for women’s equality or by visiting one of the museum exhibitions dedicated to this subject. The day can also be celebrated by supporting bills that have an impact on women. Or on this day, women can just register to vote – which is one of the most perfect ways to celebrate Women’s Equality Day.

I am so unaware.  


Bills that have an impact on women?   What possible good comes from such pacifiers.   Just to stop the phones from ringing, legislators go along to get along.


Women were better off before the Liberation Movement.  All we needed was the vote.  The rest is a waste of time and money on propaganda that fills the pockets of those who never want the fight to end.  


I have always been equal.  Why there are women who don’t believe the fact that they are equal mystifies.

What goes around, comes around.

It is a puzzle.


Something that was pointed out recently.  Much ado is made over women not having the vote.  Well, okay.  Fair enough.  But here's the thing;  men, in general, didn't have the vote, either.  Seriously.  Voting wasn't really a thing in human history until relatively recently.  Once the common dude obtained the right to vote, it wasn't over long before that right was extended to women.  How fast do things have to change in order to disprove the 'oppression' narrative?


The whole narrative that men have oppressed women since the dawn of time is crap.  Everyone was oppressed throughout most, if not, all of human history.  Hell, it wasn't even 100 years ago that people in the western world were barely surviving on the equivelent of $1/day in todays dollars.


Things have improved, we're living in the best of all times in all of history thus far.  Mayhap we've all forgotton that it wasn't over long ago that life was truly miserable for most everyone except the rulers and their sycophants.

We have, occasionally, agreed. Mostly, you take apart my ideas, line by line. Do you not? It’s fine. I always bristle when you refer to my precious country as unka sam.

I do that to differentiate between what the US government is versus what it should be.  What it is is pennywise the clown.


I’m also unwilling to entertain the idea that we, the people are the same as the feds.  We’re not.

Wait... If one is, on any level, willing to admit that large corporate interests have an undue sway on government policy; that the administrative state is something that congress has little real control over; that the executive departments have authority to regulate with force of law; that the elected president can be prohibited by the courts from changing the administrative policies set in motion by a previous executive...is the federal government still under the sovereignty of the people?

No, it's not.


Here my friend Nickel is mistaken.  The federal government does not represent us nor is it under our control.  It represents itself above all else and that would be fine were fullfilling the role of sheepdog for our nation.  It is not.  It is fulfilling the role of parasite.

Wait....are you on Facebook? We’re not friends. Antagonists, maybe. How could you not know that the limited powers of our federal government make it ours, rather than a monarch’s or tyrant’s? Deference is a problem, but that doesn’t change the fact that we are responsible for the governing entities we elect. Swaying a majority toward the right candidate, even finding the right candidate is difficult, but nonetheless we are the government in this country. Actually, people rule every country. They may not be aware, may not do it well, may not even care, but they rule.

I'm afraid I cannot agree.  Sorry.

Don’t be afraid. Don’t be sorry. You’ve always been stubborn about owning the federal government. It’s a tough pill to swallow. You’re far from being the only one in denial. What would it change for you to accept responsibility? What impact can one of 350 million + citizens have? It's not as if the Lone Ranger existed as portrayed on tv. Even so, he only covered a small section of the country. It occurs to me that you may not have been born....perhaps Iron Man...

1 of 300 million... a vote worth nothing at the national level.  We're not allowed to vote on anything except carefully screened, virtually identical wankers.  They jump into the trough and start shoveling cash out to their supporters as fast as they can.  Meanwhile, the vast bulk of the federal government is unelected, annonymous, unaccountable and un-fireable.  It is those folks who create regulations that carry the full might of the federal government yet are subject to no limitations, discussion, or votes.


Okay.  So, it's a bleak picture from here.


Opposing that is my admittedly feeble efforts within my personal sphere of influence.  Standing with me are dwindling numbers of classical liberals and libertarians.  On a positive note, youtube has been rocket fuel for the Dark Side.  Jordan Peterson, Joe Rogan and a hundred others are spreading the light of reason and a whole new generation is paying attention.


There's a good deal of hope in that.

It takes viral. Waiting for an event, recognizing an event, and summoning the clear, concise, persuasive message needed. You’ve been practicing for years.... Others have, too.... Hope it all comes to be classical liberal for the country.

Let's hope. 


We're living amidst the greatest acheivments in all of human history... yet mostly what I see from the postmodern neomarxists is condemnation, utter lack of appreciation and worst of all... it appears they are activily seeking to tear it all down and give it to the barbarians.
