    In honor of the 100th Anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, Women’s Equality Day 2021 was commemorated on August 26 with a rally in San Francisco. It was led by Major London Breed, City Assessor Carmen Chu, and other officials, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who challenged women to vote and be heard in every election.

    Women’s Equality Day was also celebrated with a virtual webinar, featuring a conversation between Mayor Breed and City Assessor Chu. Hosted by W Challenge—a collaboration led by the San Francisco Assessor’s Office, the Department on the Status of Women, and the League of Women Voters San Francisco—the conversation focused on how their experiences as women of color have influenced their leadership styles, especially leading the city through a pandemic and racial inequity crisis.
