In 2023 women in the United States will have been working for 100 years to get an equal rights amendment added to the US Constitution. The panel participants in an ERA Town Hall during May 2020 were not optimistic about the possibilities of a quick passage.
Several panelists said they predicted that partisan politics will most likely prevent the draft amendment from becoming part of the US Constitution for some time to come. Difficult and expensive litigation may be the fate of the draft amendment, they explained. The degree of determination and persistence around the ERA’s revival is noteworthy and a development worthy of significant comment.

UPDATE FROM BOB COONEY ABOUT 2020 SUFFRAGE CENTENNIAL CELEBRATIONS
Dear Friends celebrating the Suffrage Centennial,
During the quarantine, I worked with the National Women’s History Alliance to put together a Women’s Suffrage Centennial Catalog. It’s an exciting if incomplete gathering of commemorative material of all sorts produced by state centennial groups, non-profits, artists and small businesses across the country. Contact me at the email below for a copy.
Our main goal is to encourage people to visit the state centennial websites, in particular, since they are such rich resources and could use more publicity. A list of the principal state groups is included. All the sites are worth visiting.
We wanted to share the excitement of these groups and others, and promote the centennial in this free digital way to attract more people. Our hope is that the catalog will circulate as widely as possible right away with your help to increase the visibility of these worthy and timely efforts. As a rule, people love to shop.
We encourage you to feel free to send this out to your members and supporters, share it with contacts and promote it on social media – more than once. The more visibility the better. The NWHA makes no money off the catalog and we hope it benefits all those recognizing this important anniversary.
Please let me know of any corrections or changes. Thank you for all your work and for helping this catalog reach a wider audience.
All the best,
Robert Cooney, National Women’s History Alliance RobertCooney@ebold.com
