Republican Presidential hopeful Donald Trump will be in Burlingame, California on Friday and so will the members and allies of Free The Nipple.
The California GOP Convention will be held near SFO, and Free The Nipple will be there to protest Trump’s hateful rhetoric and offer a positive alternative: the Equal Rights Amendment.
The old ERA, proposed legislation with a history dating as far back as the twenties, is still on the table as a solution for U.S. gender inequality.
The Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) was a proposed amendment to the United States Constitution designed to guarantee equal rights for women. The ERA was originally written by Alice Paul and Crystal Eastman. In 1923, it was introduced in the Congress for the first time.
The Equal Rights Amendment, an apparent terrifying thought for Republicans and Mr. Trump, would guarantee equality under the Constitution for all genders. It’s 2016 and the USA still does not have a Constitutional equality provision guaranteeing equal rights for women.
Ratification of the ERA by only three more states would finally guarantee that men & women be recognized as equals in the framework of our Constitution & under the Federal Protection of the United States.
Free The Nipple is launching a national campaign to help ratify the three remaining states needed to officially pass the ERA and make it the 28th amendment to the constitution. Learn more about the movement at http://freethenipple.com/
