a Montgomery College student from Ghana, became our very first monthly
donor since United 4 Equality, LLC launched the ERA 2015 campaign in May
Myra's savvy investment in ending the 2nd
class citizenship of women and girls under the U.S. Constitution sent
our spirits soaring! Not only was this young woman willing to donate $5
each month from wages she earns at a department store to put herself
through college, but Myra reminded us that inequality for women and
girls knows no borders and that it is no longer an acceptable condition
for millennial females who seek a better future.
years ago, in May 2009, Carolyn A. Cook, founder and CEO of United 4
Equality, LLC, wrote the original proposal for joint resolutions to
eliminate Congress's deadline for the Equal Rights Amendment. She became
the first woman to challenge Congress's arbitrary deadline as
unconstitutional. Two years later, on the 100th anniversary of Int'l
Women's Day, March 8, 2011 Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin debuted our
bill. A year later, U4E made history again when the Senate introduced a
companion bill. Today, we hold the promise of Carolyn's vision and
tireless commitment to achieving the ERA in SJR15/HJR43.
Would you join Myra in
giving a "High Five" to elevating the status of women and girls in
America, in Ghana and around the World by becoming an official sponsor
of the ERA 2015 campaign now in its final victory lap?
