DWCF President Patricia Farley is asking that we stand together to demand that Florida becomes the 37th state to ratify the ERA. As a women’s advocate and activist, she explains that the only constitutional right that women have in this country is the right to vote. The 14th amendment does not guarantee the same level of protection that ERA would. Even provisions for women in the Civil Rights Act can easily be taken away. Most other rights that women have are due to Supreme Court cases that can easily be overturned by a conservative court. Before the Florida legislature that you can view on video, Patricia explains the dangers to women in light of pending and future legislation that can have extremely detrimental consequences for women. It is more important than ever to have women’s rights protected through a ratified ERA in Florida. Your help is needed urgently!
