Equality in pay, job opportunities, political structure, social security and education will remain an elusive dream without a guarantee of equality in the U.S. Constitution. The progress we have made — and must continue to make — towards women’s equality can be lost at any time because those advances depend on legislation that can be (and has been) weakened or repealed by Congress. Although we did not succeed in ratifying the Equal Rights Amendment, winning a constitutional guarantee of equality for women remains one of NOW’s top priorities.
PAST LOCAL ACTION
Women’s Rights Documentary Screening
We gathered at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Sussex County to watch the award-winning documentary Equal Means Equal, which provides a comprehensive overview of how far we’ve come and how far we’ve yet to go in order to finally ratify the Equal Rights Amendment. Our NOW-NJ State President, Deb Huber was also kind enough to attend and speak on the history of the feminist struggle in the U.S. and beyond.
