Women’s Equality Day is celebrated in the United States on August 26 to commemorate 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 sex.
I have profiled four outstanding women below who are making a tremendous mark on their chosen professions.

Rose Box NYC was created by two powerful women, Dana Dadush and Inbal Hornik, and they have been paving the way for future female entrepreneurs.
