We are on a roll convincing Americans that August 26th, Women’s Equality Day, should be a national holiday. The National Women’s History Project has been testing the water on this. It appears that the idea is beginning to catch hold. It hasn’t happened yet, and no one is predicting any arguments in public. The idea is just starting to register. And swells take quite a while to begin rolling on the ground.
This is no fly-by-night idea. Discussions about the importance of August 26th have been kicking around for a while. The U.S. Congress got Women’s Equality Day up and running. The same with March, Women’s History Month, designed in large part, to write women into history—supported and nursed by the Women’s National History Project over the past 40 years. Writing women into history is, by no means, a radical idea.
But since women have been an unrecognized resource in our nation, we have to look to the future, and we see a future where August 26th is recognized for what it is—an opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate the accomplishments of millions of Americans.
Let’s bring August 26th out into the Light. One web platform has a rallying cry: Lets Rock the Cradle.
