      Fox Valley 19th Amendment Centennial Celebration: The Equal Rights Amendment

      Join the Fox Valley 19th Amendment Centennial Celebration on Tuesday, February 18th at 4:30 p.m. to hear Jessica Neuwirth, co-president of the ERA Coalition, speak about the Equal Rights Amendment: why it’s still needed, what impact it will have on women’s issues such as equal pay, and recent progress on ratification.

      We’ll have a cash bar plus popcorn, so stop by after work! Jessica will start speaking at 5 p.m.

      This event is presented by the Fox Valley 19th Amendment Centennial Coalition and hosted by the Legislative Committee of Mid-Day Women’s Alliance.

      To aid this effort, she has also written the book "Equal Means Equal, Why the Time for the ERA is Now," which has been turned into a documentary film by the same title. Jessica is also one of the founders of Equality Now, an international women’s rights organization established in 1992, and the founder and Director of Donor Direct Action, an offshoot project now hosted by the Sisterhood is Global Institute to support women’s rights organizations around the world.

      In September 2018, she was appointed by Hunter College as Distinguished Lecturer and Rita E. Hauser Director of the Human Rights Program at the Roosevelt House Public Policy Institute.

      Jessica holds a J.D. from Harvard Law School and a B.A. in History from Yale University. She has a rich history working for human rights organizations ranging from Amnesty International to the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights.
