Green states are where the ERA was in the news!

To start, we hope you'll join us in honoring several Equal Rights Amendment activists that we lost recently across the country. Jinnah Kelson of Utah, Mary Purcell of Tennessee and Pennsylvania, Doris Peltzman of Connecticut, and Mary Elle Hunter were all dedicated leaders in the fight for the ERA, and we're grateful for their commitment to the fight we continue today.

The Alice Paul Institute kicked off a new t-shirt campaign, featuring one of our favorite quotes from Alice:

"Unless women are prepared to fight politically they must be content to be ignored politically."
