Striving for Equality & the ERA – Kate Kelly Lecture

March 17 @ 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM

This is a Facebook Live event that will take place on our page:
https://www.facebook.com/marriottlibrary/live

Did you know that women aren’t in the Constitution of the United States— and that that omission was intentional? Attorney and author Kate Kelly will discuss the century-long battle to get women, and all marginalized genders, protected under the Constitution and the incredible women and queer people who have been fighting all along the way. She will introduce us to incredible women like Patsy Mink, the first woman of color ever elected to Congress, and other advocates of the Equal Rights Amendment like Pauli Murray, Barbara Jordan and Senator Pat Spearman. Want to increase your knowledge of gender in the Constitution? Join us for this engaging conversation!
