#StrongWomen Book Discussion

Date: Saturday August 21, 2021 | Time: 2pm
The CSRA Good Trouble Coalition is excited to begin hosting the #StrongWomen Book Discussions starting this month. The Coalition is a group of individuals and nonpartisan organizations working together to educate/register voters, to increase civic engagement, and to build a better democracy.

About the Book:
A leading legal scholar tells the story of the ERA through the voices of the bold women lawmakers who created it. They faced opposition and subterfuge at every turn, but they kept the ERA alive. And, despite significant victories by women lawyers like Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the achievements of gender equality have fallen short, especially for working mothers and women of color. Julie Suk excavates the ERA’s past to guide its future, explaining how the ERA can address hot-button issues such as pregnancy discrimination, sexual harassment, and unequal pay. We the Women shows how the founding mothers of the ERA and the forgotten mothers of all our children have transformed our living Constitution for the better.
