Why has the United States, one of the most developed countries in the world, not passed the Equal Rights Amendment for women?Carolyn Cook, a small business owner, an elected official and proud feminist is committed to passage of the Equal Rights Amendment for our servicewomen and for all women by 2015.  Carolyn will present the history of the ERA since first being introduced by Dr. Alice Paul ninety years ago, her current efforts in Congress in support of the 15 un-ratified states and why it is essential for students to speak up and out in support of  the ERA 2015 campaign.  Admission is free and open to the public.

“Certainly the Constitution does not require discrimination on the basis of sex. The only issue is whether it prohibits it. It doesn’t. Nobody ever thought that that’s what it meant. Nobody ever voted for that.” — Antonin Scalia, Supreme Court Justice

“Women’s rights are an essential part of the overall human rights agenda.” — Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Supreme Court Justice
