    was, as a little girl, going door to door with my mother for the ERA. It would be everything to me to go door to door with my mother and my daughter for it now.

      to be ratified. As a young woman, I was horrified that my fellow citizens had said that i was not equal. And angry.

      Very few younger people I talk with ahve even heard fo the ERA, and they are usually incredulous when I tell them it did not pass.

      I would love to work for this campaign again!
