News Notes for women’s rights from Lets Rock the Cradle!

The deadline for nominations for the National Women’s History Project has been extended to June 15, 2018. The next theme for NWHP is intended to honor women who have led efforts to end war, violence, and injustice and who have pioneered the use of nonviolence for social change and justice. Contact the NWHP web site for nomination information.

The NWHP supports making August 26th, Women’s Equality Day, a national holiday. Part of the process involves encouraging and supporting organizations, communities, and individuals across the nation to celebrate this commemoration of the women’s 4th of July and the passage and ratification of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
