New Push for ERA Ratification

A press release from the Student Peace Action Network at McHenry County College:

“Equal Means equal” tomorrow Thursday 6:30 p.m. MCC

Equal Means Equal, a documentary urging the ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment will be presented Thursday October 19th 6:30 p.m. in B166-167, MCC.

This ERA button says, “Ratify ERA in 1975.”

EQUAL MEANS EQUAL offers an unflinching look at how women are treated in the United States today.

Examining both real-life stories and precedent-setting legal cases, director Kamala Lopez uncovers how outdated and discriminatory attitudes inform and influence seemingly disparate issues, from workplace harassment to domestic violence, rape and sexual assault to the foster care system, and the healthcare conglomerate to the judicial system.

Along the way, she reveals the inadequacy of present laws that claim to protect women, ultimately presenting a compelling and persuasive argument for the urgency of ratifying the Equal Rights Amendment.

Sponsored by SPAN: Student Peace Action Network, LWV: McHenry County League of Women Voters, and AAUW: Crystal Lake American Association of University Women.

This event is free and open to the public.


New Push for ERA Ratification — 23 Comments

  1. Student Peace Action Network.

    Sounds like a communist front organization from the sixties.

    And in cahoots with the League of women vipers no less.

    What a clown show this promises to be.

  2. Will there be hairy armpitted. unwashed women burning bras?

    Maybe the freaks that dress like little Red Riding Hood will be there, pushing baby killing!

    I’d rather get root canal…

  3. Wow. Just when I think Cal’s commentators can’t get any worse, they do.

    The misogyny of the alt-right is flatly appalling.

    Glad you two are staying home.

    Thanks for spreading the word, Cal.

  4. I believe they are aboslutely right! Is that ALSO misogyny? You are a fruit bat, Joek; if you can’t see what is wrong with this action network.

  5. Cindy, Cindy…please keep your tin foil hat on your head not your a..s.
    Joyek, never underestimate this crew of folks. They are always on the frontside of thinkers because they are led by the blogger who hasn’t been relevant since comments like caseys’ were relevant.

    Hey, fiiergas, have you read anything since the sixties? Just asking.

  6. tom? If this is such a non relevant blog why are you even here? Makes you look pretty stupid, doesn’t it?

  7. This sunshine blog will never let racism and misogyny die. We all know what compassionate conservative folks really mean with their talking point “family values.” Tic, tock, tic, tock…

  8. Not really Ms. tin foil hat, I enjoy watching the History Channel. You folks are so far behind American values that I am watching history in the making. Perhaps the title could be, ” Left Behind”. Just a thought.
    We have the folks who grab on to make believe, you, Cindy.
    Lots of racist, you pick ’em
    Fear mongers, Cal “The Thief”.
    I could go on for a long time, but then it loses it’s entertainment value.

  9. Section 1. Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.

    Section 2. The Congress shall have the power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article.

    Section 3. This amendment shall take effect two years after the date of ratification.

    Go ahead and pass it.

    We could use the ERA to end gender based set asides for government contracts, and differing gender based physical fitness standards in public safety jobs and the military.

    No more affirmative action based on gender, either.

    Back when they were trying to pass the ERA, I remember that everyone seemed to be more worried about mixed gender public bathrooms than anything else.

    The transgender community has already blown that issue up anyways, so I don’t see what difference it makes now.

  10. The senate and house resolution drafts now pending are similar.

    What language in either do you objectors dislike?

  11. tom? That explains a lot. You say you watch the History Channel? Do you know that NOTHING they tell you on that channel is the truth? You are being brainwashed. lol Turn off the boob tube and STOP listening to their agenda!

  12. According to the above info about the Oct 19th session –

    “Along the way, she reveals the inadequacy of present laws that claim to protect women, ultimately presenting a compelling and persuasive argument for the urgency of ratifying the Equal Rights Amendment.”

    Protecting women?

    Where was this group over the last few decades when powerful men in Hollywood take advantage of young women wanting acting and musical jobs and careers.

    There is plenty they can work on over there in Hollywood where the vast majority of those taking advantage of women are liberals and Democrats such as the current guy in the news named Harvey.

    Many women have come forward about the abuse they sustained from this guy.

    This guy also was a friend of the Obamas and the Clintons, raised huge cash for Hillary and Obama.

  13. That’s not decades, bred. That’s since the beginning of time. And why did the “abused” women and boys and children not speak up sooner? ERA is a sham. So are the whores in Hellywood that want your sympathy now.

  14. Very audacious landing on Obama and the Clintons. Perhaps it is in order reading from our sexual-assaulter-in-chief: “I moved on her, and I failed. I’ll admit it.

    I did try and **** her. She was married.

    And I moved on her very heavily. In fact, I took her out furniture shopping. She wanted to get some furniture. I said, “I’ll show you where they have some nice furniture.” I took her out furniture—I moved on her like a bitch. But I couldn’t get there. And she was married. Then all of a sudden I see her, she’s now got the big phony tits and everything. She’s totally changed her look.”

    More from our women-protector: “I better use some Tic Tacs just in case I start kissing her. You know I’m automatically attracted to beautiful—I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything.

    Grab ’em by the pussy. You can do anything.”

    Compassionate conservative, family values…tic, tock, tic, tock…

  15. I wonder if my readers know that it was Johnsburg Democratic State Rep. Tom Hanahan who called ERA supporters “Braless, brainless broads.”

  16. The sexual assaulter in-chief was Bill Clinton.

    He “actually” and in fact, violated women.

    He took advantage of a very young woman the age of his daughter in the White House, and other women.

    That woman was barely out of her teen years.

    He had sex with her in the oval office.

    He left a stain on the blue dress of this very young woman.

    He, the most powerful man in the world, was compromised and could have easily been blackmailed.

    He was reckless.

    Bill violated a woman named Paula Jones in Arkansas while he was a public official.

    He eventually had to pay her $800,000 as settlement of his violation.

    A business woman in Arkansas said on an hour long news special on network tv that Bill raped her.

    Bill was an elected official at the time. The host of the tv news special was a prominent woman reporter.

    Bill violated and groped a woman named Kathleen Willie in the White House during his second term in office.

    She had Democratic affiliations and was a volunteer working in the White House.

    Bill had an affair with a woman well before he ran for the presidency and this was known before the November 1992 election.

    But, the fawning and liberal media made light of this and said it was a private matter and the knucklehead voters elected this guy anyway.

    The liberal media and Hollywood types have for years made light of men, sometimes much older men, violating very young women.

    A young actress in the 1980’s named Molly has recently wrote in a publication that she was violated at times during filming of shows, movies in Hollywood.

    She was 13, 14 at the time.

    The vast majority of Hollywood entertainment people are liberals and Democrats and have supported inept and incompetent people such as Obama and Hillary.

    There have been many pictures and videos of Harvey of Hollywood seen with both Barack Obama and Michelle Obama and also with Hillary Clinton and super Democrat apologiser, Whoopi Goldberg.

    It is interesting that Bill Clinton is in hiding and has not been seen on national tv since the matter about Harvey of Hollywood violating women became a big news item.

    Have not seen Bill standing next to Hillary while she speaks about her phony and disingenuous SHOCK about the Hollywood guy violating women.

    How phony is this woman in speaking out now in not referencing her own husband who violated women a number of times.

  17. ERA is a concept that got less support the more the public found out about it.

    Six states rescinded their ratification before in expired.

    More states rescinded ratification than ratified after the first year.

    It has no chance now.

  18. You are wrong bred. They are NOT liberals and democrats. They are communists!
