JOIN PMC IN CELEBRATING WOMEN’S EQUALITY DAY ON AUGUST 26TH
 
On August 26, 1920, the United States Congress certified an amendment granting women the right to vote. The signing of the 19th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution followed a rugged 40-year history in which activists faced ostracism, brutality, and criminal records in their fight to procure women this fundamental right.
 
Ninety-nine years later, we celebrate this victory through Women’s Equality Day. On Monday, August 26, please join Population Media Center in recognizing the historic achievements of the suffrage movement in the United States, and acknowledging areas worldwide where the battle for equal rights for women is still active today.

We sought his insight on child marriage in Nepal, including public opinion, contributing factors to the practice, and the effectiveness of efforts to curb Nepal's high child marriage rates.
