August 26 is Women’s Equality Day. On this day, America recognizes the ratification of the 19th Amendment, which granted women the right to vote. Moreover, Women’s Equality Day calls to attention women’s continued struggle for full equality.
At YouthBuild, where 30% of our students are female, we believe in equality in the classroom, on the worksite, and as leaders. In recognition of Women’s Equality Day, we celebrate Gina Vongkaeo, YouthBuild San Joaquin graduate, who is succeeding in all three areas.
