Women’s Equality Day
Every year on August 26, we celebrate Women’s Equality Day: a holiday that commemorates the 1920 adoption of the 19th Amendment, which gave U.S. women the right to vote. This monumental achievement only came about because of the tireless efforts of passionate, fearless women—something that still inspires Avon a century later and helps drive Avon’s mission to celebrate women’s power to make a beautiful and positive impact in the world.
For more than 135 years, since before women even had the right to vote, Avon has been at the forefront of women’s equality, creating a path to independence with a new way to earn their own income. Avon continues to celebrate women’s equality every day!
In celebration of Women’s Equality Day, we asked the Avon community to submit nominations of women who have impacted their lives and inspired them so we can celebrate them and share their stories. Read on to learn about these incredible and inspirational women.
