She Did Day

Wednesday, August 26, 2020 10:00 am

Event is virtual.

Save the date! The annual She Did Day is August 26 and will kick off with a
19th Amendment Virtual Event at 10 a.m.
We'll soon roll out more opportunities to recognize local women and the
importance of the 100th anniversary of the 19th amendment.
Before then, participate in our #SheDidDay Challenge by sharing your
accomplishments as a woman and contributions to the community -- large and
small! Then tag three friends who you'd like to challenge to do the same.

Historic Columbia and WREN launched the Columbia City of Women initiative in
March 2019 with the unveiling of a map that honors the legacy of 12
trailblazing women. In August 2019, the first She Did Day was proclaimed in
the city to recognize the local accomplishments of women. The day is also
celebrated nationally as Women's Equality Day commemorating the 1920
certification of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, which granted women
the right to vote. The certification of the amendment was an important
milestone in the women’s rights movement but did not guarantee access to
the ballot for many women of color.
