The Equal Rights Amendment was intended to give women the same rights as men in the Constitution. But it didn’t get enough ratifications, and it never passed. Back in 1975, it was the hottest debated issue in the Nevada legislature. A group of Nevada women decided to push for its ratification, and suddenly found themselves locked in a battle with politicians, housewives, and even the Mormon Church. Those women join us to talk about their activism, and why they think women today still don’t have equal rights.
Not able to hear their interesting comments, I will comment myself. I am spearheading Florida's legislation to ratify the re-ignited ERA 18/7 for TWELVE years, & helping mentor 6 other states & 2 new bills before US Congress! I tried to help NV 2 yrs ago when IT had ERA bills too. I do that ForFree For YOU, and ALL at 77y/o!--So, ERA is NOT dead.

Can the ladies you have in studio today help me? I cannot understand why ANY American Woman would support a political candidate or political party position that would deny her the same human right of self-determination regarding her reproductive organs that American Men enjoy. Why do some women follow these people when they are supporting the reduction of their human rights?Jim in Henderson –Mar 29, 2012 08:54:21 AM
