EQUAL MEANS EQUAL launches Woman’s Journal 2.0

On the eve of the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage in America, EQUAL MEANS EQUAL is launching Woman’s Journal 2.0. The original Woman’s Journal began as a weekly newspaper in 1870, and was instrumental in mobilizing people across the country to support the 19th Amendment. We hope this new iteration will inspire people nationwide to support the Equal Rights Amendment.

Kamala Lopez and Natalie White, directors of EQUAL MEANS EQUAL, along with women’s rights attorney Wendy Murphy (@WMurphyLaw) co-host and interview guests on a variety of topics related to women’s civil and constitutional rights, and the ERA.

Episode 1: Introduction and the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA).

In this episode, co-hosts Wendy Murphy and Kamala Lopez introduce themselves, the Woman’s Journal 2.0 project, and their respective histories of advocacy related to establishing gender/sex equality in the United States.

Following the introductions, Wendy and Kamala proceed to a deep dive explanation on the history of the Equal Rights Amendment (the ERA) and explain why passage today would be of the utmost importance for women in America.

Episode 2: Laura Callow and the History of the ERA 3-State Strategy

Laura Carter Callow is one of the most valued elders in the ERA movement. An indefatigable advocate for women’s rights, Laura shares the history of the “3-State Strategy” — a new strategy that came about in the early nineteen nineties:  how it came to pass; who is responsible for it; and how it will help us push through to equality for all Americans under the law today.

Here is the legal brief underpinning the ERA 3-State Strategy that Laura mentions in the podcast:

We are a one-of-a-kind magazine that provides local, regional, national and international information about women’s lives and education, performing and visual arts and writing, the environment, green living and sustainability and regional Western North Carolina business, people and events. “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 Our Mission SheVille.org provides readers with information important to women’s lives and well-being. We focus primarily on the areas of education & health, business & finance, the arts & the environment. We are particularly interested in local & regional resources, organizations & events.
