The Women's Equality Coalition of Linn County holds several events throughout the year to celebrate and uplift women and girls. We hope you can join us!

WOMEN'S EQUALITY DAY CELEBRATION

Each year we commemorate the anniversary of August 26, 1920, the passage of the 19th amendment, which recognized women’s right to vote in America. Since 1976, we have observed Women’s Equality Day in Linn County on this date, and we welcome you to participate in our celebration.

The event features the presentation of the Women of the Year awards. The Women’s Equality Day Celebration, which provides the opportunity to uplift local women and celebrate our heroines of the past, is only possible through the support of our community.

INTERNATIONAL  WOMEN'S DAY LUNCHEON

In 1975, the United Nations observed March 8 as International Women's Day.  A day to celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievement of women.  2018 was the first year for the Women's Equality Coalition of Linn County to celebrate with a luncheon.

Come hear influential women share their history, their experience, and their goals for the future.
