LACDP Celebrates the Achievements of Women Throughout History in Honor of Women’s Equality Day

California Democratic Party Vice Chair and Los Angeles County Democratic Party Chair Eric C. Bauman released the following statement in honor of Women’s Equality Day:

“On this day 96 years ago, the unconditional sacrifices of our suffrage leaders resulted in women finally gaining the right to vote. Throughout our nation’s history, women of all walks of life and backgrounds have made significant contributions to our American experience, but have not always been met the respect and dignity that they deserve. Today, 96 years later, we are at the precipice of shattering what is perhaps the greatest and last glass ceiling of all, the election of the first female President of the United States.

 

The Democratic Party proudly leads the charge in protecting women’s rights and working to expand participation in our political and social spheres of life. As we celebrate Women’s Equality Day, the members of the Los Angeles County Democratic Party re-commit ourselves to doing the hard work necessary to help elect America’s first woman president – and to inspire young girls and women to believe that true equality may one day be finally achieved.”
