Just over a hundred years ago, women didn’t even have the right to vote in America. Now, equal opportunity exists for women to climb to some of the highest ranks in government and corporations. But the conversation on women’s rights has not ended - it’s evolved. How does abortion change the fight for women’s equality? What would the ERA change for women if it were ratified? Where should we be focusing our efforts to achieve true equality for women? Join us for a conversation with legal scholar Erika Bachiochi on these questions and more on Thursday, October 21 at 1 p.m. EST.
