WOMEN’S MARCH ASHEVILLE January 20, 2018 …We Showed Up and showed up and showed up!
“The proposed Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) states that the rights guaranteed by the Constitution apply equally to all persons regardless of their sex.
In 2017, it is impossible to argue that the amendment is inappropriate, since one who does so implies that women should be legally subjugated.
It’s equally impossible to claim that the amendment is unnecessary, given the continuing inequality we see.
So the remaining argument against the ERA boils down to coded variations of “it would upset the balance of power” — in other words, it would give women a fair chance.
Resistance to the Equal Rights Amendment shows fairness for women sadly is still controversial.”

“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
