Dear Friends,

The theme for International Women's Day 2019 is #BalanceForBetter

Kamala Harris has said The Equal Rights Amendment will be a priority if she wins in 2020

The ERA Coalition has asked every candidate to make The Equal Rights Amendment part of their platform.

March is Women's History Month.

These two quotes seem apt as we contemplate the march of history itself and women's seemingly continual march towards full human equality.

'No man has a right to fix the boundary to the march of a nation; no man has a right to say to his country, "Thus far shalt thou go and no further."''

Charles Stewart Parnell (1846-1891),
Irish Statesman / Leader for Irish Home Rule
Speech in Cork, Ireland
, Jan. 21, 1885.

"The test of a civilization is its estimate of women."
George William Curtis (1824 – 1892)
American author and orator, Equality and Civil Rights Advocate

Here we are again marching
past the boundaries
of a nation hemming us
no longer.
Wise grandmothers crown
our ne plus ultra,
granddaughters  shoulder the trek, sailing
unseen towards their peak
strength; diversity.
becomes us.
