Happy Birthday Patrick the Wombat! This 29 year old is the world’s oldest living wombat (living currently at the Ballarat Wildlife Park in Australia). Given that Patrick has never had children, or any partners in general, probably makes him the oldest living wombat virgin as well! Congrats mate!
Women’s Equality Day
Established in 1971 by Representative Bella Abzug (NY) through a Joint Resolution of Congress, Women’s Equality Day is observed on August 26 to commemorate the passage of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, which granted women the right to vote in 1920.
In commemoration of Women’s Equality Day and the 94th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, the National Archives (usnatarchives) is hosting a discussion in partnership with the Sewall-Belmont House and Museum:
Tuesday, August 26, at 7 p.m. at the William G. McGowan Theatre.
