Women's Rights Are Human Rights


Passersby see our latest banner proclaiming our support for women's rights. Although the 19th amendment to the U.S. Constitution granted women suffrage, the Equal Rights Amendment, proposed by feminist leader Alice Paul in 1923, is yet to be ratified. The late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia unequivocally stated that the 14th amendment, often used to address women's issues, does not suffice to guarantee women human rights equal to men's. We support the ERA and work to make it a reality.
