Over 120 people joined the Region V Women’s Bureau, City of Chicago Advisory Council on Women, the Illinois Department of Human Rights and the Illinois Department of Labor to celebrate the Women’s Equality Day and the 90th Anniversary of the Women's Bureau on August 26 in Chicago. Illinois Governor Pat Quinn spoke at the event and proclaimed the day as Women’s Equality Day in Illinois.

The program also highlighted important milestones in women’s history in our nation-the Seneca Falls Convention in 1848, the creation of the Women’s Bureau and the passage of the 19th amendment in 1920, Rosie the Riveter during WWII, the Equal Rights Amendment; and the passage of Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Restoration Act.
