“Well isn’t that the eternal question?” Highlighting Gender Equality and Strong Female Leaders in POTUS on Broadway


On April 27th, we did what not a lot of New York locals are willing to do…spent more than an hour in Times Square. The ERA Coalition spent Wednesday supporting our new partners, the POTUS Coalition, at their Time Square Rally for Women. With the opening of POTUS or, Behind Every Great Dumbass Are Seven Women Trying To Keep Him Alive, Broadway is now putting the issue of gender inequality at center stage.

Looking back on the history of the ERA


In 1923, the ERA was first brought to Congress by National Woman’s political party. Versions of the amendment were brought to the floor every session of Congress between 1923 and 1970. The official ERA reads, “Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.”
