Women in the United States finally earned the right to vote on August 26, 1920, when the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution was finalized and became the law of the land. Women’s Equality Day is a commemorative day (August 26th) that has been proclaimed on a yearly basis by every U.S. president since it was first introduced in 1971.
To honor the theme, we’re commemorating Women’s Equality Day this year, and we want you to cast your vote for the promo you want. The polls open today on Facebook and we welcome women everywhere to cast their vote! The votes will be tallied during the 4th week of August, and a coupon code for the winning promotion will be sent out via our email newsletter prior to August 26th.
