Support the Equal Rights Amendment

I am part of this group in Facebook called ERA NOW. They are an organization dedicated to the ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment. Some people may think we don’t need the ERA, because societal progress has eradicated the need for it. Not true. From women still making 77 cents to every dollar a man earns, to a woman who just got fired for being “to attractive,” our rights that have been hard fought for in the second wave, are being attacked. Enough is enough.

Here is a petition to sign in support of the Equal Rights Amendment. It is our White House petition drive, and we need 25,000 signatures by February 10. Please sign and share this petition with all of your friends. Although the ERA failed to be ratified the first time around, let us make sure we finish what they started.

To our equality!
