Tomorrow is for Domestic Violence Awareness Month!

Purple has historically symbolized women’s rights and empowerment since the suffrage movement of the 1900s. In the December 6th, 1913, edition of The Suffragist newspaper, writers for the Congressional Union for Woman Suffrage explain that “Purple is the color of loyalty, constancy to purpose, unswerving steadfastness to a cause”.

Purple was widely worn during the first observance of Domestic Violence Awareness Month in October 1987. Since then, it has continued to be a symbolic color in supporting domestic violence victims and raising awareness.

The History of Women’s Equality Day

At the behest of Rep. Bella Abzug (D-NY), in 1971 and passed in 1973, the U.S. Congress designated August 26 as “Women’s Equality Day.” The date was selected to commemorate the 1920 certification of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, granting women the right to vote. This was the culmination of a massive, peaceful civil rights movement by women that had its formal beginnings in 1848 at the world’s first women’s rights convention, in Seneca Falls, New York. The observance of Women’s Equality Day not only commemorates the passage of the 19th Amendment, but also calls attention to women’s continuing efforts toward full equality. Workplaces, libraries, organizations, and public facilities now participate with Women’s Equality Day programs, displays, video showings, or other activities.

Women’s Equality Day, observed annually on August 26, marks a global recognition of the ongoing struggle for equal rights and opportunities for women. It serves as a tribute to the universal suffrage movement, celebrates women’s advancements, and reinforces the commitment to gender equality.

The theme for Women’s Equality Day 2023 is “Embrace Equity,” echoing through the strategic plan spanning from 2021 to 2026. This theme underscores the importance of achieving gender equality, not just for economic growth, but also as a fundamental human right.

Despite the progress we have made together advancing pay equity and childcare policies and legislation, mothers in New York and around the country, still struggle for pay equity and financial stability, which was dramatically highlighted by the pandemic. To raise awareness, National Mom's Equal Pay Day is being observed on August 15, 2023, the day that mothers catch up to fathers in terms of equal pay. https://www3.erie.gov/csw/press/moms-equal-pay-day
