Honor Bella Abzug, who began Women's Equality Day

Many of you may know that today is Women's Equality Day. President Obama made a proclamation in honor of the event. What you may not know is that at the behest of Rep. Bella Abzug (D-NY), in 1971 the U.S. Congress designated August 26 as "Women's Equality Day."

Please honor Bella and her legacy by supporting the Bella Abzug Leadership Institute, which trains high school, middle school and college-aged women to become leaders. I am honored to be on the board, which includes Gloria Steinem. I have personally witnessed the results, especially with girls from underserved communities. Please support them now:

If you cannot donate but have contacts who may want to volunteer or know of others who can donate, please forward them the info. Thanks!
