More than 70 members of the Arizona League of Women Voters came to the Capitol in February to lobby the Arizona Legislature on behalf of ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA). Here are a few ERA supporters from LD9. You could see the Equal Rights for Women sashes all over the Capitol that day. Waves of women’s groups and protesters have came to the Capitol to support the ERA. The Republicans are still stalling. They don’t want their members to be “embarrassed” by voting against equal rights for women. There are more women in Arizona than there are Republicans.
I am so proud to serve with these women: Reps. Wenona Benally, Mitze Epstein, Geraldine Peten, Athena Salman, Kelli Butler, me, Isela Blanc, and Kirsten Engel in the front. The House Democratic Caucus rocks.
