Women Deserve a Voice on the Job and at the Ballot Box

August 26, 2015

Today, we celebrate Women’s Equality Day, a day that commemorates the 19th Amendment being ratified granting millions of women the right to vote. In the 95 years since, women have used their votes to better their lives, strengthen their families and protect their communities. But women have yet to maximize their power at the polls—about one-third of all U.S. women and nearly 40% of unmarried women are not registered to vote—or in the workplace. The labor movement provides almost 7 million women with a voice on the job through union membership and is a driving force in the fight for economic equality and security for women.
