    "As a Republic dedicated to liberty and justice for all, this Nation cannot deny equal status to women."

    On August 22, 1974, President Ford signed a proclamation designating August 26 as Women’s Equality Day. That date honored the incorporation of the Nineteenth Amendment, which guaranteed women the right to vote, into the Constitution on August 26, 1920.

    In the proclamation President Ford noted his previous backing of the Equal Rights Amendment and his intention to continue supporting it. “Today I want to reaffirm my personal commitment to that amendment,” he stated. “The time for ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment has come just as surely as did the time for the 19th Amendment.”

    Representatives Yvonne Brathwait Burke (D-Calif), Barbara Jordan (D-Tex), Elizabeth Holtzman (D-NY), Marjorie S. Holt (R-Md), Leonor K. Sullivan (D-Mo), Cardiss Collins (D -Ill), Corinne C. Boggs (D-La), Margaret M. Heckler (R-Mass), Bella S. Abzug (D-NY), Shirley Chisholm (D-NY), Ella T. Grasso (D-Conn), Patricia Schroeder (D-Colo), and Patsy T. Mink (D-Hawaii) attended the signing ceremony held in the Cabinet Room. First Lady Betty Ford and Anne Armstrong, Counsellor to the President, were also present for the signing.

    In commemoration of Women’s Equality Day, the National Archives (usnatarchives)  is hosting a discussion in partnership with the Sewall-Belmont House and Museum

    Women’s History on the Horizon: The Centennial of Woman Suffrage in 2020 

    Tuesday, August 26, at 7 p.m. at the William G. McGowan Theatre

    Can’t make it? The discussion will be streamed at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R2t48I3j004.
