Women’s Equality Day 2014
“Women are succeeding like never before.
Their contributions are growing our economy and advancing our nation.
But despite these gains, the dreams of too many mothers and daughters continue to be deferred and denied.
When women are given the opportunity to succeed, they do. There is still more work to do and more doors of opportunity to open.”
– President Barack Obama August 25, 2014
