Happy Women's Equality Day! On this date, 95 years ago, American women won the right to vote

Today is a big deal. On this date, 95 years ago, American women won the right to vote and participate in our democracy. 

It's hard to imagine a world where men and women didn't share the most basic of our civil liberties. 

Just shy of a century later, women all over our country honor those who fought for equality by exercising their right at the polls.

In fact, women have voted more than men in every presidential election since 1980.

But even today, we know that voting rights are under attack for American men and women. As we celebrate the tremendous progress we've achieved since 1920, we also recognize the work left to do. 

With your help, we can continue to preserve the right of every American -- no matter their gender, race, ethnicity, or background -- to have a voice on election day. 

Enjoy today, and rock on.
