Today is #WomensEqualityDay! It celebrates the 1920 adoption of the Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution, which prohibits the states and the federal government from denying the right to vote to citizens of the United States on the basis of gender. pic.twitter.com/lpfeKjzjt9— Jared Polis (@GovofCO) August 26, 2019
