#WomensEqualityDay is Saturday, August 26 - and the birthday of Geraldine Ferraro, the first woman nominated on a major Presidential ticket. Watch and share the Showtime film about her life and impact to get inspired for the road ahead!
33 years ago today, Geraldine Ferraro became the first woman nominated to a major party Presidential ticket. And still, no woman has been elected VP or President!!
Watch and share the film for inspiration to help make sure a woman is elected to one of the two highest offices in the land in 2020!
For the first time in American history, a woman was the nominee for a major party — and a majority voted to elect her President. Though she did not also win the Electoral College, important progress was made towards a woman breaking the highest glass ceiling in the land.

Be sure to watch until the end when George and Barbara Bush offer some kind words of support.
"In 1984, I simply assumed that my parents’ favored candidate, Walter Mondale—and his vice-presidential pick, Geraldine Ferraro—would win. And so when I woke up the morning after the election to see that in fact they had lost 49 of 50 states, I was crushed to realize that in fact most of America did not agree with my parents or with me. I thought of 1984 on Tuesday night as the results started spiraling into nightmare-land. " -Dan Koss, Slate

"During her acceptance speech on Thursday, Clinton faced (history) head-on, wearing all white in what is likely a nod to Geraldine Ferraro, who wore white when she became the first woman to accept the Vice Presidential nomination of a major party, and the suffragettes, who wore white while fighting for women’s right to vote." - ThinkProgress.com

NEW YORK TIMES...
"There are those who now say that a woman running for president was inevitable, that the 18 million cracks in the glass ceiling that Mrs. Clinton talks about are just time moving on. But it took 32 years to get from one scene to the other, so a look back to the Ferraro campaign can tell a lot about how the country has changed, and how it has not, through these decades of cultural ferment over the roles of the sexes."
"When I walked into the booth on election day (in 2008)... I looked up at (Hillary’s) name, and I swear, Susan B Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton were sitting beside me. They’re saying pull the lever. I felt that all the work that had been done for over 100 years was reaching fruition. It was the first and only time I cried when I voted. It was one of the proudest moments of my life to be able to pull that lever for a woman for President.”
- GERALDINE FERRARO (from the film... )
“I was always proud to have her stalwart, outspoken support. She talked to me about what was really important in life.”
- HILLARY CLINTON (from the film)
