The Growing Voice of the ERA

The Equal Rights Amendment was front and center on the national stage this week with Notre Dame women's basketball coach Muffet McGraw’s awesome response to the reporter who asked her about the importance of women’s leadership in sports. The video, which has since gone viral, starts out with a major callout to the ERA:

"Did you know that the Equal Rights Amendment was introduced in 1967 and still hasn't passed? We need 38 states to agree that discrimination on the basis of sex is unconstitutional,” said Notre Dame's Muffet McGraw.
“How are these young women looking up and seeing someone that looks like them, preparing them for the future? We don’t have enough female role models. We don’t have enough visible women leaders. We don’t have enough women in power.” – Muffet McGraw

We at EME are proud to have a strong female leader:

“Leadership often necessitates taking a radical step in a culturally unfamiliar direction and hoping that your logic and passion brings folks to your way of thinking.” – Kamala Lopez, Executive Director of Equal Means Equal, speaking to the City of West Hollywood and Chamber of Commerce at the 2019 Women in Leadership Awards.
