Thread (1/28) Today, @Hulu drops the 1st episodes of #MrsAmerica which tells the story of our failure to ratify the #ERA in the 70s/80s. I know this story-You should too. Why? B/c it explains the 2016 election. Really? What does the ERA have to do with Trump’s win? Glad you asked
(2/28) “At one time, ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment seemed like a foregone conclusion. In fall 1971 and spring 1972, the #ERA sailed through the House & the Senate by votes of 354 to 24 and 84 to 8” from my piece in @washingtonpost #MrsAmerica washingtonpost.com/outlook/2019/0…
(3/28) On 3/22/72, the #ERA moved to the states for ratification with a 7-year timeline. It needed 38/50 victories to become the law of the land. 3 states passed it in less than 24 hours (HA, NH, DE)! 5 more passed it by the end of month (IA, ID, NE, KS, TX)! #MrsAmerica

Hola. Soy Especialista en derechos de las mujeres. No soy médico ni epidemióloga, ni útil para evitar el colapso del sistema global de salud.

Sin embargo, quería compartir con ustedes porqué en una crisis como ésta las #mujeres están particularmente expuestas.

Abro hilo 👇
Este hilo será largo pero espero que aprendan, se entretengan, sonrían y nos ayude a enfrentar el futuro post-#COVID19. Les hablaré de enfoque de género, mujeres y tareas de cuido y relación entre crisis y violencia.

Compartiré contenido bonus en el camino. Se apuntan? 👇
Para mayor diversión, en este hilo el malvado #Coronavirus será llamado 👑🦠( emoji técnicamente es “bacteria” pero aguánteneme ahí). Cuando hablemos de #mujeres (👩) hablaremos de 👩 de todas edades, etnicidades, orientaciones y diversidades.

Empecemos👇

Imagine sitting for days by the side of a dangerous arterial, holding a sign hoping for the hit-and-run driver who killed your vibrant, beloved daughter to come forward? Knowing there is still no crosswalk planned to address the TTC desire line? #NACTO19 thestar.com/news/gta/2019/…
