SCREENING OF “LEGALIZE EQUALITY” – Environmental & Social Justice Film Night – Friday, October 19th, 7 PM Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Asheville
Are Men and Women in the U.S. equal under the law? NO!!! The U.S. Constitution does not guarantee equal rights for women. According to the late Justice Scalia, “Certainly the Constitution does not require discrimination on the basis of sex. The only question is whether it prohibits it. It doesn’t.”
Are Men and Women in the U.S. equal under the law? NO!!!
THE EQUAL RIGHTS AMENDMENT NEEDS TO BE RATIFIED BY NORTH CAROLINA NOW!!!
Join us to view a short film, Legalize Equality, and talk with panelists, Roberta Madden, Jimmie Pratt Cochran and Marie-Line Germaine, Ph.D. who have up-to-date information re: ERA NC Alliance.
The climate is ripe for full equality for women today by adding this 24 word statement to the Constitution:
“EQUALITY OF RIGHTS UNDER THE LAW SHALL NOT BE DENIED OR ABRIDGED BY THE UNITED STATES OR BY ANY STATE ON ACCOUNT OF SEX.”
Ratifying the ERA would put American women’s civil and human rights on a solid, immovable foundation, impervious to the winds of political change.
Illinois was the 37th state to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment. Will North Carolina be the 38th and final state needed?

“Villages preserve culture: dress, food and dance are a few examples. As villages grow in population and turn into towns, local cafes make way for large American chains. Handmade leather sandals are discarded for a pair of Western sneakers.
Due to its small size, a village fosters a tight-knit sense of community. Justpeace.org explains the meaning of the African proverb, “It takes a village,” by stating that a sense of community is critical to maintaining a healthy society.
Village members hold a wealth of information regarding their heritage: they know about the ancient traditions, methods of production and the resources of the land. When villages become dispersed or exterminated in times of war, this anthropological knowledge disappears.
Large cities are not as conducive to growing and producing foods such as fruits and vegetables. Villages, on the other hand, usually have ample amounts of land and other resources necessary for growing conditions.” The Importance of Villages by Catherine Capozzi
