Wear white on Saturday, August 26th and stand in solidarity with decades of strong, change-making women.
Wearing white for women’s rights has been a tradition for over a century, from British suffragists in the late 19th century to women of Congress this very year. Political groundbreakers such as Shirley Chisholm, Bella Abzug, Geraldine Ferraro, and Hillary Clinton have all worn white to honor the pioneers of the movement and their passionate commitment to helping others.
Call your representatives in Congress to support the ERA and demand equality for all, regardless of gender. The ratification of the ERA is long past due.
Since 1923, women and their allies have advocated for the passage of the Equal Rights Amendment, a legal framework to challenge discriminatory policies and affirm women’s right to equality. Today, 35 states have ratified the ERA, but we still 3 more states to do so in order to fully enact it in the Constitution.
Commit to being an active voter and share the voter pledge on social media. Your public dedication to civic engagement will inspire friends and family to do the same!
Women make up over half of the nation’s electorate and yet women only constitute ~20% of Congress. Policies that harm women’s freedoms and livelihood still run rampant. Have a say in who represents YOU by voting in your next election - local, state, and national.
