This has been going on for far too long. Although we realize that there are still 3 more states needed to ratify - it's still VERY important for us to let Congress and the President know that we still care, we still want this and we are still fighting for it.

Let's get this done!

Join us as we march on Washington, D.C. for the We Are Woman March!

      I demand nothing short of equality for every human being, because We Are The People of the United States of America.

      Why is this important? Because I'm a woman, and I have a daughter and a granddaughter. Because while corporations are apparently now "persons" protected under the constitution, and extremists are continually proposing laws that would bestow "personhood" on zygotes, women are apparently not considered persons when it comes to constitutional protections; i.e., Supreme Court Justice Scalia has stated that the constitution does not protect women from gender discrimination. Because every day, in unprecedented numbers, extremists are proposing legislation that would violate a woman's fundamental rights to autonomy and self-determination. Enough is enough!

      I am a woman and I want my rights to be explicitly protected by my country's constitution.

      As a woman and a voter this must be done and assure woman are equals.

      It is important to me for the same reason it should be important to all Americans: it is the right thing to do to insure that all Americans have equal rights and that women are not considered less than men. We have been living in a mysogynistic nightmare for far too long!
