The ERA – It’s Not Over ‘Til It’s Over

By EME Team

We are thrilled to share an important new article about our movement to ratify the ERA from Refinery 29, a digital-media and entertainment company for young women with a global audience of 550 million across multiple platforms.

“From that first anachronistic moment, meeting the ghost of Alice Paul, it was like complete certainty. This is what I need to do. It’s just not okay that we disregard the millions of women-hours over the past 100 years that have been put into making sure that this basic principle that all people are equal be added to the Constitution. We cannot abrogate our responsibility to adopt that principle as a nation.” – Kamala Lopez to Refinery 29’s Amelia Harnish.
