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 just signed the following petition addressed to: The U.S. House of Representatives, The U.S. Senate and The President of the United States.

The Equal Rights Amendment:
S.J.Res. 21 - H.J.Res. 69 - S.J.Res.39 and H.J.Res. 47

The Equal Rights Amendment is still very important to women all across the United States. We realize that 3 more states are still needed to ratify and we prefer the 3 state solution to starting all over again. We feel it's important for the President and Congress to know that we still care, we still want this and we are still fighting for it.

Sincerely,
