CAMPUS ERA DAY – April 26, 2018
The Flora Stone Mather Center for Women and the Social Justice Institute invite members of the campus community to participate in the second annual Campus ERA Day on April 26, 2018. Together with the ERA Coalition, we aim to spread awareness of and gain support for the revitalized push to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment to the United States Constitution.
A viewing party of the short film 50/50 will be held in the Center for Women, followed by a livestream Q&A with Carol Robles-Roman (CEO of the ERA Coalition), Carol Jenkins (founding president of The Women’s Media Center and chair of AMREF USA, an African health organization) and others. The intent of the panel is to foster a nationwide discussion on the need for an Equal Rights Amendment and gender equity.
The event is free and open to the campus community; you are welcome to bring food. Plan to arrive between 5:30-6:00 pm; the livestream will begin promptly at 6 pm.
In 1923, the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) was introduced in Congress to ensure that women were equal under the law and prevent sex-based discrimination. Almost one hundred years later, the United States Constitution still does not guarantee equal rights for women! To accelerate the pace of change, the ERA Coalition started Campus ERA Day last year in 2017.
