The story of the fight for Women's Suffrage is as old as the United States itself. Since the birth of the new nation, through the Civil War and up until ratification, women organized, protested, and politically strategized, demanding their voices be heard. The names of the pioneers of the women's movement are written in history, Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Alice Paul and Ida B. Wells-Barnett to name just a few. The campaign for women's rights continued with women such as Gloria Steinem, Betty Friedan, Coretta Scott King, and New York Congresswoman Bella Abzug who was the architect of the bill that designated August 26th as Women's Equality Day, picking up the flag and moving the needle.
