This episode of The Authentic Woman's originaly aired on April 7. We are re-broadcasting it this week to pay homage to those who have lost their lives in the fight for women's equality in America - especially in the fight for women's suffrage! And, of course, we would like to remember and thank the men and women in the United States Armed Forces who have died for our collective freedom.

Tonight's show shares the history of the Equal Rights Amendment's lengthy path to ratification. Most Americans are shocked to learn that there is still resistance to the ERA's ratification in 2014. Senator Ben Cardin held a Senate Briefing about the ERA this spring, featuring many longtime women's rights leaders  whose speeches are shared in this episode, as well.

Hosted by women's rights leader Shannon Fisher,  The Authentic Woman shares Perspectives on the Female Experience in America by delving deeply into the worlds of writers, artists, celebrities and community leaders - discovering their personal inspiration and passions. Shannon was named one of the “Richmonders of the Year” by Style Weekly for her activism in women’s rights.
