The assault on women's rights being waged by red state governments throughout the country could not gain traction if the Constitution included the Equal Rights Amendment. This simple act was written in 1923 and passed by both houses of Congress nearly 50 years later -- only to fall just three states short of the 38 needed to ratify it into law.

Our guest this week is Denise Schutz, co-founder of Progressive Women of Massachussetts, an advocacy group that informs and links women using social media. She has been active in seeking final passage of the Equal Rights Amendment for quite some and won't give up till it's part of the US Constitution.

Weekly political discussion from the progressive POV, hosted by the MOMocrats. Produced by Engender Media Group. Original airdate: 8/21/2013
