W2, Building 111 Hastings St Vancouver , B.C.
to 12:00 am
Women’s Equality Day is a day proclaimed each year by the United States President to commemorate the giving of the vote to women throughout the country on an equal basis to men. This important victory has and continues to be important for women in countries around the world.
Terrance Evans Entertainment wants to celebrate this day with a spectacular 24 hour world record all female on air / online performance. We will be starting at 12:01am on August 26, 2011 and continue broadcasting for 24 hours from CJSF, 90.1 FM live going around the world touching each continent bouncing between time zones, city to city, country to country showcasing female DJ’s, MC’s, musicians, hosts, performers and speakers. We will be ending the day in our home city of Vancouver, BC Canada with live interviews and a grand finale. Some of the proceeds from this day will go to benefit several charities including The World is Watching, a Red Cross relief organization (http://theworldiswatching.net/
). Here is a word from singer/songwriter, Rose Reiter, founder of The World is Watching.
“Good Morning Terrance -
“Individually, we are one drop. Together, we are an ocean.” – Ryunosuke Satoro
I wake up this morning with great gratitude – What a wonderful gift to know that you will be holding events that may generate some donations and awareness for my campaign, The World is Watching. I thank you, your team, and those that will donate. I know that the people this will help would also thank you if they could – and every little bit helps.
What is it? A marathon, not a race.
This is my campaign for communities in emergency need, to help them through the initial phase of crisis. I felt I had to start somewhere, so that’s where I’m starting. Get them water, food, shelter, medicine to help them survive, and perhaps as my campaign grows larger, we will expand our scope. I started this in April of this year, raising awareness and funds through the sale of my song, The World is Watching. People from around the world donated footage for the video, and we’ve even had other fans take it on and do their own vids, which we encourage.
So, what is this? It’s a way of us helping communities everywhere that require emergency aid, via the Canadian Red Cross. I’ve had personal experience with how amazing the Red Cross has been in our own region during a major flood in 2010, and that’s why I chose them to donate proceeds from the sale of the song. The heart of this campaign is much larger than even I realized at first – and I can see turning this idea into a foundation for year 2 – but I’d like to finish my first year’s campaign goal of raising $10,000 to assist communities in need.”
Women in the United States were given the right to vote on August 26, 1920, when the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution was certified. The amendment was first introduced many years earlier in 1878. Every president has published a proclamation for Women’s Equality Day since 1971 when legislation was first introduced in Congress by Bella Abzug. This resolution was passed designating August 26 of each year as Women’s Equality Day.
A Brief History of the Suffrage Movement and Women’s Equality Day
On July 13, 1848, five women met for tea in upstate New York. Having commiserated about the lot of women in American society, they did something brash and wonderful…they sent off a notice to the local newspaper announcing “a convention to discuss the social, civil, and religious conditions and rights of woman” to be held just six days later in Seneca Falls.
The Women’s Rights Movement was born!
Perhaps inspired by the sovereignty of Iroquois women, convention participants drafted a Declaration of Sentiments which began: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, That all men and women are created equal…” One of the resolutions called for universal women’s suffrage. One hundred women and men from all walks of life signed that Declaration. Only one, nineteen-year-old Charlotte Woodward, lived to see women win the vote.
On August 26, 1920, after a 72-year struggle, the 19th Amendment to the Constitution of the U.S. was finally ratified, granting women the right to vote nationwide.
If you are a woman or know of one and would like to be part of this groundbreaking event, we would love to hear from you. Please send us your contact information and what you feel that you could contribute to this day and we will get back to you.
We look forward to working with you to make this day memorable!

History of Women\'s Equality Day
Women\'s Equality Day is a day proclaimed each year by the United States President to commemorate the giving of the vote to women throughout the country on an equal basis to men.
Women in the United States were given the right to vote on August 26, 1920, when the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution was certified.

Every president has published a proclamation for Women\'s Equality Day since 1971 when legislation was first introduced in Congress by Bella Abzug. This resolution was passed designating August 26 of each year as Women\'s Equality Day.
We believe that Women\'s Equality is a global event and many other countries have passed similar amendments allowing women all over the world to have a say. There are still however countries that do not allow equality for women and while celebrating the benefits of what we have here in North America we are also raising awareness for the lack of women\'s equality in many countries.
International Men\'s Day
International Men\'s Day (IMD) is an annual international event celebrated on November 19. It was inaugurated in 1999 in Trinidad and Tobago, and the day and its events find support from a variety of individuals and groups in Australia, the Caribbean, North America, Asia, Europe, Africa, and the United Nations.
Speaking on behalf of UNESCO, Director of Women and Culture of Peace Ingeborg Breines said of IMD, \"This is an excellent idea and would give some gender balance. She added that UNESCO was looking forward to cooperating with the organizers.\"
The objectives of celebrating an International Men\'s Day include focusing on men\'s and boy\'s health, improving gender relations, promoting gender equality, and highlighting positive male role models. It is an occasion to highlight discrimination against men and boys and to celebrate their achievements and contributions, in particular for their contributions to community, family, marriage, and child care.
