Help make history for Women's History Month with the Equal Rights Amendment. This week is one of the most important for this vital amendment as the U.S. House can vote to remove the arbitrary timeline, by voting YES on HJR 17 THIS Wednesday, March 17th.
The bill, HJR 17, is a joint resolution that will eliminate the last barrier for the ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment, which prohibits discrimination based on sex. It was assigned an arbitrary seven year timeline, which has already been extended once before. You can read the full resolution HERE

Thank you for prioritizing women's rights. There should be no timeline on women's equality. Congress has the power to remove it and finally rectify omissions of the past. It's about fairness. It's about respect. Ask them to stand up for women. You can help push a 97-year effort over the finish line and make history in 2021.
