We urge you to participate in ERA-NC Advocacy Day on Wednesday, June 27th at the NCGA in Raleigh. This CALL TO ACTION comes on the heels of Illinois becoming the 37th state to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA). Only one more state ratification is needed to amend the US Constitution. NC is now the face of the national conversation. Our state is poised to make history, becoming the 38th and final state needed to push the passage of the amendment over the top.

Toward the end of the Second Great Awakening, a series of revivals that marked the first half of the American 19th Century, one Baptist preacher named William Miller confidently predicted that “Jesus Christ will come again to this earth, cleanse, purify, and take possession of the same, with all the saints, sometime between March 21, 1843 and March 21, 1844.” Based on his complex calculations derived from the Bible, the minister was certain that the millennium would arrive no later than that spring day, when melting snow often still blankets the woods of the preacher’s native upstate New York.

The Innovation & Entrepreneurship Center presents Black Entrepreneurship Week, a full week of thought-provoking talks, panels, and community building events that spur innovation and promote entrepreneurship.
The 2018 North Carolina General Assembly has started its slow march toward adjournment. Here’s a quick update about what to expect before legislators go home.
Last week, lawmakers approved a flurry of bills in anticipation of an expected adjournment later this month. Lawmakers plan to restrict their work during the remainder of June to local bills and constitutional amendments – which do not require the Governor’s signature – as well as veto overrides. Keep in mind that veto overrides require a three-fifths vote in both chambers, or 72 votes in the House and 30 votes in the Senate. A three-fifths vote is also required to place a constitutional amendment on the ballot.
By invitation, I submitted a workshop proposal, titled “Gate of the Mysterious Female,” to a Tai Chi conference.

College Degrees Bring Significant Benefits to Single Mothers and Society
Single mothers who complete an associate or bachelor’s degree earn hundreds of thousands of dollars more over their lifetimes and have significantly lower rates of poverty than single mothers with only high school diplomas, according to a new analysis recently released by IWPR. The analysis, which is the first of its kind, finds that public or institutional investments in services, such as child care and case management, boost graduation rates and more than pay for themselves through graduates’ increased tax contributions and reduced public benefits. But access to these benefits must be improved; currently, only 8 percent of single mothers who enroll in two- or four-year programs graduate with a degree.

My name is Marta Milkowska and I am a graduate student at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government. I am working on a project aimed to better understand the problem of pain during sex – something experienced by many women. This summer, with support from Our Bodies Ourselves and the Harvard Kennedy School’s Women in Public Policy Program, I am seeking interviews with individuals who fall into one of the following three categories:
- Women ages 16 to 35 who experience pain during sex
- Women who have successfully reduced or eliminated pain during sex
- Physical therapists and medical clinicians (such as ob/gyns, family practice physicians, and internists) with experience diagnosing and treating pain during sex

by Tae Yun Kim, syndicated from Parabola in The Daily Good
At age seven, Tae Yun Kim gazed upon her uncles practicing an ancient martial art. She was awestruck. Never before had she seen something so beautiful and exciting, their movements both natural and mystical. She decided right then and there she had to learn. There was only one problem: She was a girl in 1950s South Korea, and this was a five-thousand-year-old culture and tradition. When Kim asked to train with them, she was told, “You’re supposed to learn how to cook and sew. And if you’re lucky, someone will find you a husband. . . . ” Continue reading
