Some of the leaders who struggled for equality were Susan B. Anthony, Sojourner Truth, Lucy Stone, Lucretia Mott, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Harriet Tubman, and Alice Paul.
Understanding the true history of our country will help us to comprehend the need for full equality under the law for all our people. This goal can be achieved by ratifying the 27th Amendment to the United States Constitution, which states that 'Equality of Rights under the Law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of sex'.
Each year a theme is established for Women's History Month and this year's theme is “Nevertheless, She Persisted: Honoring Women Who Fight All Forms of Discrimination Against Women.”
