2012年8月26日被正式宣布为妇女平等日。这一天对于妇女争取平等权利的斗争有着特殊意义。1920年,美国宪法第19条修正案被批准后,妇女获得了投票权。然而,妇女平等日的重要性不仅仅是对第19条修正案的纪念,这一天也是为了提醒人们关注妇女追求真正平等的继续斗争。

August 26, 2012 was officially declared Women’s Equality Day.  This date holds a special significance to the fight for equal rights for women.  In 1920, the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution was ratified, giving women the right to vote.  However, commemorating the 19th Amendment is not the only importance of Women’s Equality Day.  This day also helps to bring attention to the struggles that women continue to face as the quest for true equality continues on. 

 

Although the official Women’s Equality Day has passed, to me, this serves as a reminder that every day should be Women’s Equality Day.  Women, both in the United States, and around the world, continue to fight for the same rights given to men.  The purpose of Women’s Equality Day, and of this blog, has been to bring these issues to people’s attention, and to generate a discussion about the direction of women’s rights.  As the world struggles in many other areas, like the economy and the environment, the significance of Women’s Equality Day takes on a new meaning because not only do women need to fight for equal rights, but they also need to find ways to keep their struggle known and relevant to people who can make a difference, like policymakers and community leaders. 

Discussion Questions

            With many other important issues facing policymakers, how can people help to keep women’s issues in the spotlight?  Do you think that resolving women’s issues can also help to solve problems like the economy? 

 

问题讨论:

在政策制定者同时面对许多其他重要问题的情况之下,我们应怎样将女性问题摆放在焦点的位置?你认为女性问题的解决有助于其他问题(例如经济问题)的解决吗?
