President Obama has declared Aug. 26 -- which marks the 91st anniversary of the constitutional amendment giving women the right to vote -- to be "Women's Equality Day."

In a proclamation published by the White House Thursday, Obama said, "I call upon the people of the United States to celebrate the achievements of women and recommit ourselves to the goal of gender equality in this country," according to Reuters.

Im glad he is focusing on such pressing issues.
He's a very busy man, doing lots of important things...

FWIW, I STILL haven't received my rebate check! (Been checking the mail every day) However, I DO have a backup plan! When I go to visit friends & family in GA & TN, I am buying lottery tickets.

I figure that between Barry O's promise to take care of me & the lottery, it's just a matter of time & I will be set!

I don't care about this 'Women's Equality Day', I'm still going to treat women better then I do men.

The religious right wing in America today wants to return to a past in which women had less rights than today. They are clearly on the side of religious intolerance of anyone who lives different from them. Freedom is their catchphrase, but control is their goal. Abortion is a primary example as is their war on voting rights and science in education. When you control the law you control the nation. Was America always this dumb, or is it today that dumb has a platform? The rich will do as they please, the poor women will always suffer. Bravo for Obama.
