Until a few years ago, I thought the Equal Rights Amendment was "so '80's," but the more I looked at how women are faring in the United States - in the courts, in the workplace, in representation at the local, state and national levels - the more I was convinced that we need to be written into the constitution in order for our rights to be taken seriously! I joined the Alliance because we WILL achieve this, and I want to be a part of it!
