Aug 28, 2015 – Women’s Equality through Time
First annual Women’s Equality March and Rally in downtown Durham, 4:30pm – 7:30pm.
NC women are FIRED UP and ready to rally! We have a women led, women run women’s march and rally in honor and recognition of Women’s Equality Day.
Our event is in honor and recognition of the national “Women’s Equality Day” holiday, which occurs earlier in the week on August 26th. That day marks women’s suffrage with the passage of the 19th Amendment in 1920, constitutionally guaranteeing women the right to vote.
We will recognize women’s progress and champion the continued push for women’s equal rights. This year’s theme is “Women’s Equality Through Time.” We are looking forward to a Mayoral Proclamation about this event. We have a press conference planned for Wednesday, August 26.
Current plans for Friday are to gather at the Old Durham County Courthouse at 4:30 pm and march step off is at 5:15 pm. We will march over to Durham Central Park. At Durham Central Park, we will enjoy a terrific rally to include speakers, performance artists, skits, live music, tabling, children’s activities and food trucks.
Looking at a spectacular keynote speaker and inspiring speakers from North Carolina! We’ll add more details soon!
