VIRGINIA FLIPS BOTH CHAMBERS to PRO ERA LAWMAKERS

Virginia expected to ratify ERA bill in January 2020.
What an amazing night ending in a momentous development for the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA). On Tuesday, Virginia flipped its legislature to a majority of pro-ERA lawmakers, setting the state up to become the 38th state necessary to ratify the ERA as early as January 2020.

Check out the primary bill sponsors!

NC anticipated to ratify next.  Gearing up for 39th!

What this means for NC is critical. The national campaign includes a focused emphasis on immediately securing ratification by the 39th state to bolster and firmly anchor the point that women across our country want equal rights under the U.S. Constitution. NC is well positioned to fulfill that vital role and keep the conversation going about the will of the people and equality.
 
The ERA-NC Alliance will be sharing information about the upcoming ratification effort in Virginia to include live streaming links to Virginia’s ERA floor vote for local Ratification Watch Parties. And, importantly, stay tuned for updates on short session plans for the ERA in NC in 2020.
 
This is an historic step forward and an exciting time for advocates working on the ratification of the ERA!

A big thank you to the lead primary sponsors of ERA bills in NC! CLICK HERE TO SEE WHO THEY ARE

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.
