Event description

Description

We are very excited to be celebrating this important day with women and men from all across Arizona. We invite you to help us honor the women who came before us, the women who are standing beside us, and the women who are preparing to lead us.

The progress of women's equality in Arizona is gaining attention, and efforts to increase the level of public awareness and garner bipartisan support to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment are not going away anytime soon. We will continue to fight for equality and encourage women to get out and vote.

Because... WHEN WOMEN VOTE, WOMEN WIN!

This year's program will focus on the importance of ratifying the ERA (Equal Rights Amendment), and the continued efforts to encourage women to run for office.

OUR SPEAKERS:

Our KEYNOTE speaker this year will be JESSICA NEUWIRTH, President of the ERA Coalition, an organization working to support passage and ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment. She is one of the founders of Equality Now, an international human rights organization aiming to end violence and discrimination against women. She is also the author of EQUAL MEANS EQUAL: Why The Time For An Equal Rights Amendment Is Now.

Dr. Karon Jolna, Program Director & Editor of Ms. in the Classroom for Ms. Magazine, and Feminist Majority Foundation

Sara Bradshaw, West Coast Political Director for Feminist Majority Foundation, trailblazing feminist leader, organizer and educator. Most recently Sara led FMF’s Equal Rights Amendment Walks in Los Angeles and Palo Alto, as well as organizing for the Nevada ERA. Sara also leads Feminist Majority Foundation’s current End Child Marriage campaign.
