St. Mary's County Recognizes Women's Equality Day

August 26, 1920 stands as a momentous day for women across the United States. It was on that day they were granted the right to vote with the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment. Ahead of the 96th anniversary of that occasion, the Commissioners of St. Mary's County paused to recognize Women's Equality Day in the county.

Women's Equality Day commemorates the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment and serves as a symbol of the continued struggle for equal rights for all.

"The women of St. Mary's County are to be commended for their efforts to promote local organizations and activities in the political arena and are encouraged to continue to exercise their hard-won right to participate fully in the political process," said Commissioner Tom Jarboe (1st District).

The commissioners call all St. Mary's County citizens to acknowledge the milestone and to continue to strive for global equal rights.
