"Women Strike for Equality" March 26, 1970

"Women Strike for Equality" March 26, 1970

On August 26, 1970, a gathering of 10,000 women in New York took to the streets of Manhattan to both celebrate the 50th anniversary of the 19th Amendment and demand further rights for women. The march was organized by Betty Friedan and a coalition of feminist activists, including the National Organization for Women (NOW), the YWCA, the National Coalition of American Nuns, Feminists in the Arts, and Women Strike for Peace.
