The introduction I’ve added to this text explains some of the analogies I see between Victor Frankenstein’s creature and the legal corpus of laws that apply to women in the United States. Those analogies occurred to me in this 200th year following the initial publication of Mary Shelley’s novel, Frankenstein.
Thank you, SheVille, for the very strong July 20, 2018, article on the reasons we need the Equal Rights Amendment. I’ve sent the link for the article to several people I know, and I added the reference to the article to this latest draft of my handmade book on the process of ratifying the E.R.A. I finished making the book before I saw the article, so I didn’t include your article in the resources I used for the book project.

The women behind the first statue of a woman from history to be erected in New York City’s Central Park discuss its groundbreaking importance.
In 1995, the artist Meredith Bergmann was working on a film set in Central Park when she noticed something was off.

Quietly and determinedly, Democratic Sen. Mazie Hirono of Hawaii has become one of the fiercest voices among the still too-small cadre of women senators. She’s doing it in the nomination hearings of all five of the committees she sits on, starting with these questions.
“Since you became a legal adult, have you ever made unwanted requests for sexual favors or committed any verbal or physical harassment or assault of a sexual nature?”
“Have you ever faced discipline or entered into a settlement related to this kind of conduct?” Click here to Continue reading

The Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment, may appear to safeguard women against discrimination, but Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia went on record insisting this isn’t the case.
“Certainly the Constitution does not require discrimination on the basis of sex, the only issue is whether it prohibits it. It doesn’t. Nobody ever voted for that,” he said. (In an interview for the January 2011 issue of California Lawyer)
I have been a financial planner for over twenty years. During that time, I have read just about every personal finance book under the sun. Why do I torture myself so? In the early days of my practice, I hosted a call-in radio show in Asheville, NC, called Money Matters. For five years I spent an hour each Saturday morning discussing every financial topic imaginable.
