Event description

Description

The Charlottesville Chapter of the National Organization for Women invites all to celebrate Women's Equality Day at a reception on August 24, 2017. The 19th Amendment granting voting rights to U.S. women was passed just 97 years ago. Each year we honor the suffragists who made it happen and get inspired to continue the fight for full equality for women and girls.

As part of this annual event, Charlottesville NOW:

  • Gets proclamations from the city and county proclaiming Women's Equality Day
  • Donates books that advance women's rights to the public library
  • Highlights the history of voting rights with entertaining short films/presentations
  • Presents current threats to the advancement of women's rights
  • Shares what needs to be done to retain and increase women's rights

But most of all, it's a celebration! Join us for hors d'oeuvres and desserts and a chance to network, have some fun and get inspired!
