Women’s Equality Day

August 27, 2022 @ 11:30 am - 3:00 pm

Join the City of Frankfort for the 2nd Annual Women’s Equality Day celebration & community involvement fair at the Old State Capitol.

This event will recognize the history of the women’s suffrage movement while also focusing on the continued fight for equal rights by involving women in their local community.

The day will kick off with a celebratory march for women in downtown Frankfort at 11:30 and culminate on the Old Capitol steps with notable speakers. The afternoon will feature a community involvement fair on the Old Capitol Lawn, highlighting community organizations that specifically provide ways for women to be involved in local efforts both politically and philanthropically. Local women’s networking and civic groups will be represented, as well as opportunities for voter registration and a voter simulation activity.

Events will also be held throughout downtown, including the tour of the women suffragists buried at the Frankfort Cemetery, tours at the Kentucky History Center, Liberty Hall Historic Site and the Capital City Museum, and downtown Frankfort merchants will be open for shopping and dining.
