Happy Women’s Equality Day. Now Let’s Get to Work


Happy Women’s Equality Day. Now Let’s Get to Work.

Sarita Gupta

It has been almost half a century since the Women's Strike for Equality March. Forty-seven years ago, 50,000 women marched down Fifth Avenue in New York City, calling for equity in education and employment, the repeal of anti-abortion laws, and universal child care. This massive event sparked Congresswoman Bella Abzug to lead the charge in establishing Women’s Equality Day in 1971.


You should be thinking of equality, not gender equality.
I am glad for the successes made.
But there are abuses that cross gender lines.

We are not being able to maintain abortion clinics in every state.
But you want to put a stop to abuse of low wage workers that are female?

Noble indeed.
