Women everywhere are marginalized and as much as we have acted to make changes toward total gender equality it has become clear that we are not there yet.
Equal Rights Amendment update:
US Equal Rights Amendment blocked again, a century after introduction
WASHINGTON, April 27 (Reuters) – The U.S. Senate on Thursday fell short of the votes needed to enshrine equal rights for women in the Constitution, a century after a guarantee of gender equality was proposed in Congress.
With a 51-47 vote in favor, Senate Democrats and supporters were nine votes shy of the 60 needed for a resolution to clear the 100-member chamber’s filibuster hurdle.
The resolution would have removed a 1982 deadline for state ratification that prevented the Equal Rights Amendment from going into effect. Three states — Nevada, Illinois and Virginia — approved it after 1982.
So: Nope! Still not done. The fight continues.

??As a proud Feminist (who is not a man hater either) I present to you these words from role model Emma Watson. I believe we need to ??reclaim this word (Feminist) as we strive for Gender Equality on this Planet! Men are invited to be part of the conversation and honor the other half of the global population on the long road to Equality.
It is 2018 now and we aren’t even close to Equal yet in most places on Planet Earth. From wages to control over our own bodies to education – the ways we aren’t there yet are endless. ?
Beautifully done easy to read infographic (although mostly alarming ) on the state of global gender equality & why it is so important to prioritize – for all of our sakes!
