As you may or may not know, today is Women's Equality Day -- a national holiday that was created in 1971 to commemorate the 19th Amendment which grants women the right to vote. The holiday is also seen as the day to continue on the fight for equality, in the form of closing the pay gap, eliminating sexism in the workplace and society, and guaranteeing equal representation.

But it is ALSO #NPS100, the day the National Parks Service turns 100.

Here are a few #WomensEqualityDay pictures from today, as a reminder that it's okay to take a pause to celebrate some of the good.
