May Day for the ERA! Carrie Baker, on the Fight for Gender Equality!

April 19 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT

Did you know that the ERA (Equal Rights Amendment) is not in the U.S. Constitution?  Did you know that the required 38 states have, as of 2020, now ratified it?  So why is it still NOT in our Constitution?  And what does an upcoming (May 5th) court case in our own state of MA, have to do with getting the ERA passed – or not??

Join Indivisible Northampton as we host renowned scholar, author and activist Carrie N Baker to discuss the current legal status of the ERA, whether it’s still needed, and what we can do to help make full equality across genders a reality in the U.S.

We’ll also hear about how to get involved in IN’s current campaigns to Fight Disinformation, and to Pass S1, the For the People Act.

Carrie Baker, JD, PhD, is a Professor in the Program for the Study of Women and Gender at Smith College. She is an expert on women’s rights law and policy, specializing in sexual harassment, sex trafficking, and reproductive rights and justice.
