Cultural Observances and Awareness Events: Women's Equality Day 2021

Special Observances 2022: Home

Theme: Celebrating Women's Right To Vote -- "Valiant Women of the Vote: Refusing to be Silenced."

The Department of Defense (DoD) recognizes August 26, 2021, as Women’s Equality Day.

On this day, we celebrate the ratification of women’s suffrage in the U.S. as well as the heroes who faced violence and discrimination to propel the women’s voting rights movement forward. It is a major milestone still celebrated in the women’s rights movement today. This year’s theme is "Valiant Women of the Vote: Refusing to be Silenced." DoD recognizes the 19th Amendment that serves as a reminder to continue pursuing gender equality. As an employer of choice, DoD is committed to ensure we create an environment for all women to serve freely and safely. We embrace diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility, and acknowledge our commitment to afford women the opportunities to represent our nation as role models, mentors, and lead at the highest levels within the Department.
