SORT BY Relevancy
The Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) has been introduced in Congress every year since 1923. In case you’re counting, that’s 91 years. So, what’s the big deal? Women have equality already. Or do they?
The Oregon Constitution was written in 1857 and ratified in 1859. The state constitution says that “[n]o law shall be passed granting to any citizen or class of citizens privileges, or immunities, which, upon the same terms, shall not equally belong to all citizens.” Aren’t women protected by these words in Article 1, Section 20?
Yes...and no. Because equality is not expressly granted, it is left to case law to decide what is or is not “privileges” or “immunity.” In other words, judges decide based on precedents and rule according to their own interpretation for the situation.
So, what would change if the ERA is passed into law? Join us today as we ask grassroots activist, Leanne Littrell DiLorenzo about www.voteERA.org’s efforts to amend the Oregon Constitution to allow for equal rights for women. What is the three-state strategy? How does the Oregonian effort impact the national movement that still exists for ERA ratification?
LUNCH with LOUDEN - Jeanene Louden and co-host Debilyn Molineaux talk about current events and look for opportunities to bridge political divides, expose corruption and share information not covered in mainstream media.
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 “People of the Year” by Style Magazine for her activism in women’s rights.

It was proposed for the first time in 1923 by the suffragist leader and founder of the National Woman's Party, Alice Paul.
The language of her proposed constitutional amendment is beautifully simple.
Section 1: Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of sex.
Section 2: Congress shall have the power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article.
It seems simple, obvious and right. It sound like justice. And yet, this constitutional amendment has been one of the most contentious in the history of the United States. It has been repeatedly struck down over the years. Not struck down by men, men's rights activists, or the male owners and proprietors of female-enslaving-sammich-factories (FESM). No, it has been struck down by women who recognized that actual equality under the law would mean, for themselves levelling down to match the rights and obligations of men. Levelling down. But it's time, and the Equal Rights Amendment is an idea whose time has come. Tonight on AVFM Radio, Karen Straughan; (Girl Writes What), Kristina Hansen (The Wooly Bumblebee), and John Hembling (John the Other) will be putting thier weight behind the ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment to the
