How to Celebrate Equality Day
You could host a party with music and dance that is indicative of the era during which the 19th Amendment was passed. If you’re not sure what took place then, do a bit of research before you plan. You could also include activities such as “pin the vote on the ballot box” that would even be appropriate for children. Maybe you could also have a movie night that includes some historical fiction or documentaries.
Celebrating Women’s Equality Day doesn’t have to be a one-day event, however. You can mentor women of all ages year-round. Some of the encouragement you give might include inspiring them on their own recovery journeys using material from the My 12 Step Store.
