Women’s Equality Day: 4 Things You Can Do to Help Empower Women in Your Community
Let These Ideas Inspire You!
On August 26th, 1920, history was made. Women across the country were given the right to vote, which was undoubtedly a huge breakthrough in the campaign to promote gender equality. That’s the very reason why Americans observe Women’s Equality Day every 26th of August.
Besides celebrating the achievements of our women’s rights activists, past and present, Women’s Equality Day also reminds us of the daily struggles women face in the workplace, public areas, and society in general.
Despite the gains made in promoting women’s rights, the fight for equality is far from over. Gender discrimination continues to plague workplaces. Moreover, the wage gap between male and female workers keeps constraining the latter’s economic power.
Hopefully, there will come a time when women won’t have to fight for their rights anymore, a time when women will be given equal opportunities in society. The annual celebration of Women’s Equality Day could be the driving force behind it.
What You Can Do to Help Empower Women
There’s no better way to celebrate Women’s Equality Day than by doing things that can help empower women, including girls. Kids Car Donations offers these four ideas to inspire you:
- Support female-owned businesses.
If you know of any female-owned stores in your local area, head over there and buy something. Better yet, promote these local businesses for free by telling your social media friends about them. Word-of-mouth marketing does incredible wonders.
- Support a charity that advocates women’s empowerment.
Whether you prefer donating or volunteering, these nonprofits will be more than happy to make you a part of their mission to empower girls and women across America.
- Tell the women in your life how much you appreciate them.
You can start empowering girls and women in your home, workplace, and community. Send a “thank you” note to that teacher who has helped mold you into the person you are today. Tell a female colleague how much you admire her work ethic. At home, surprise your mom with a bouquet.
- Mentor a young girl.
Here’s a sad reality: Many girls today are grappling with serious issues such as lack of education, poverty, neglect, and domestic violence. One way to help them is by signing up to be a mentor. Look for local mentorship and after-school programs online and check if they need volunteers.
