Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney Pays Tribute To 19th Amendment at Met Gala 2021

Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney made a big political statement at the 2021 Met Gala on Monday (September 13) at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.

The 75-year-old the U.S. Representative for New York’s 12th congressional district since 2013 stepped onto the red carpet in a Antonios Couture dress, which read “Equal Rights From Women”, a tribute to the 19th Amendment.

Passed by Congress June 4, 1919, and ratified on August 18, 1920, the 19th amendment guarantees all American women the right to vote.

Carolyn even added a sign to her bag which read “ERA Yes”, which encouraged voters and congressman at the time to vote the Equal Rights Act into law.

The annual Costume Institute Gala is the fashion world’s equivalent of the Oscars and the event is usually held on the first Monday of May, but it was postponed until September 2021 due to the pandemic. The theme this year is “In America” and there will be a two-part exhibit with the second part debuting at next year’s Met Gala.
