Introduced by Bella Abzug (former member of the U.S. House of Representatives) and established in 1971, this day commemorates the passage of the 19th Amendment, the Woman Suffrage Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which in 1920 gave women in the United States full voting rights. Visit the National Women’s History Museum for more information.
