ERA in the News: March 22-31, 2019
Happy end of Women's History Month! It's been very inspiring to hear stories of historical women from across the country this month and we look forward to channeling that energy into the rest of the year.
This week was exciting as we saw news coverage in states that haven't had any ERA news at all in 2019, including Rhode Island, Washington, and New Mexico. As of the end of the first quarter only seven states are missing ERA coverage in 2019: Alabama, Iowa, Montana, South Dakota, Tennessee, West Virginia, and Wyoming.
