GFWC Participates in January 27 ERA Rally

January 31, 2022

GFWC joined other equal rights advocates on January 27 in front of The White House to ask the U.S. government to fulfill its duty of publishing the 28th amendment of the U.S. Constitution. At this ERA Rally, GFWC International President Marian St.Clair (center left) stood in front of The White House with Feminist Majority Foundation Co-Founder Ellie Smeal (center right) to say “yes” to the ERA now. GFWC Director of Membership Services & Programs Melanie Gisler (far left) and GFWC California’s Cindy Sanders (far right) also joined them.

In January 2020, the necessary three-quarters, or 38 states, ratified the proposed Equal Rights Amendment (ERA). However, the United States Archivist declined to publish and certify the ratification based on a 2020 memorandum from the U.S. Department of Justice, Office of General Counsel, stating that the deadline had passed.
