August 26, 2020 – National Dog Day | National Women’s Equality Day
We Owe A Century of Thanks to Those Who Have Stood Up For Women’s Equality. Do You Recognize Any of These Names?
Welcome to August 26th, 2020 on the National Day Calendar. Today we celebrate women’s rights and man’s best friend.
On this day in 1920 the United States Congress passed the 19th Amendment to the Constitution granting women full and equal voting rights. While it may sound preposterous to our young women and girls, this amendment was nearly 80 years in the making, if you take into account that the seeds of unrest were sown in the early 1800s. That’s when Lucretia Mott and Elizabeth Cady Staton, along with Martha Wright, Mary Ann McClintock, and Jane Hunt, set in motion plans for the first woman’s rights convention in Seneca Falls, New York after being denied access to the World Anti-Slavery Convention in London.Today, we celebrate National Women’s Equality Day and the one hundred years of progress we have made since the 19th Amendment was passed.
Over 15,000 years ago, early humans domesticated wolves and in doing so they formed a friendship that has endured the test of time. Modern dogs, from purebreds to mutts look and act much different from their wild ancestors, with many being bred to perform certain jobs. And with so many different breads to choose from, there is truly something for everyone. Consider these differences carefully when adopting a new member of your family. Because so many pets end up in shelters, it’s important to find the right fit for you and your lifestyle. On National Dog Day, celebrate your furry friends who are awfully glad that you are in their pack.
