United for Equality, LLC (U4E) is an award-winning, women-owned public policy and work/life strategies company in Washington, DC. Our work is guided by the principle that it is the duty of government to ensure that both male and female citizens have equal access, participation, opportunities and representation in society.
The universal work/life crisis facing Americans stems in part from Congressional action that obstructed passage of the Equal Rights Amendment in 1982 by arbitrary deadline. In failing to recognize women as equal citizens, the U.S. government has neglected its responsibility to enact policies and programs that would further women’s interests and those of working families. This in turn undermines our social well-being, business innovation and global economic competitiveness in the 21st Century. We must eliminate all constitutional barriers to women’s human potential.
Our signature project, the ERA 2020 campaign, seeks to modernize America’s Constitution by fully recognizing women as equal citizens, producers and consumers within the U.S. economy. With the proper political framework established, we will engage America’s Top Employers within the Work/Life Movement and Congress to establish a National Work/Life Agenda for working women and families.
