SHOULD THE EQUAL RIGHTS AMENDMENT BE REVIVED?
Wednesday, December 9 at 7 pm ET
As we know, Virginia became the 38th state to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment giving the amendment the required number of states for ratification. The deadline has passed, but the House of Representatives eliminated the deadline earlier this year. If all goes well in Georgia on January 5th, we will have a majority in the Senate. So this question becomes relevant.
Speakers will be:
Jane Mansbridge, author of the award-winning Why We Lost the ERA,
Carol Robles-Román, former co-president and CEO of the ERA Coalition, and
Inez Feltscher Stepman of the Independent Women's Forum.
Moderator will be Jeffrey Rosen, president, and CEO of the National Constitution Center.
Please join the Dec. 9th DEBATE at 7 pm, and we can continue the discussion on this blog. I dream of gender equity in the constitution. It would be a solid foundation from which to fight discrimination! We may even be able to stop worrying about our reproductive rights!
Thanks to Ellen O'Connor for sending this event along and Gracie Coates for reminding me to keep this fight going!

"The union will be more perfect when that simple statement, that men and women are persons of equal citizenship stature, is part of our fundamental instrument of government," the late great RGB said.
