A MUST READ: E. R. A. a short primer for the monstrously long process of ratifying the Equal Rights Amendment to the U.S. Constitution

Dear Reader, 

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. 

Happy reading,

Virginia McKinley,  Asheville, N.C.

Five Hundred Years of Women’s Work: The Lisa Unger Baskin Collection, February 28, 2019 – June 15, 2019

Women’s work. The phrase usually conjures up domestic duties or occupations largely associated with women—such as teaching, nursing, or housekeeping. The Lisa Unger Baskin Collection upends those associations. By bringing together materials from across the centuries, Baskin reveals what has been hidden—that Western women have long pursued a startling range of careers and vocations and that through their work they have supported themselves, their families, and the causes they believed in.
