Day of the Girl Child
Oct 08, 2014 at 01:27 PM

ImageOn December 19, 2011, the United Nations General Assembly adopted Resolution 66/170 to declare 11 October as the International Day of the Girl Child, to recognize girls’ rights and the unique challenges girls face around the world.

Girls play multiple roles in the household, society and the economy.

In History: Women's Equality Day
Aug 26, 2014 at 08:08 PM

On August 26, 1920, the 19th Amendment was certified, securing for women the fundamental right to vote.  The product of decades spent organizing, protesting, and agitating, it was a turning point on the long march toward equality for all, and it inspired generations of courageous women who took up this unfinished struggle in their own time.  On the anniversary of this civil rights milestone, we honor the character and perseverance of America's women and all those who work to make the same rights and opportunities possible for our daughters and sons. When women are given the opportunity to succeed, they do.  - President Obama (August 25, 2014)
