#Missouri #SCR7 being presented by Senator @JillSchupp in #moleg Senate Rules Committee #ERA #ERANOW Rowden Bernskoetter, Hegeman, Schatz present, from what I can tell.
Lots of hands go up to testify in favor. Fewer will testify opposed.
#SCR7 #moleg
Schatz inquires about the impact of the original #ERA deadline.
Jason Holsman, who has sponsored ERA in 2013 or 2014 is now present. #ERANOW #MOLEG #SCR7
Senator Schupp mentions that today is #EqualPayDay for the average woman in the U.S., the day on which she finally has earned, since 1 January 2018, what the average man earned in calendar year 2018. #SCR7 #moleg
Testifying now: @kamalalopez, director of the film Equal Means Equal. What an honor and a privilege to have her testify in favor of #SCR7 #ERA #ERANOW #moleg
Kamala Lopez testifies that the deadline was illegally imposed on the #ERA; points out that arguments against ratification were abortion, marriage equality, & women in combat; all of which we now have the legal right to now. There’s no more reason to oppose #ERANOW.
#SCR7 #moleg
Kamala Lopez points out that the U.S. guarantees fewer rights to women than other western nations. #ERANOW #SCR7 #moleg
#ERA will address the gender pay gap, violence against women, sexual harassment...Nevada & Illinois have voted to ratify recently.
Her speech is passionate.
Not one inquiry of Kamala Lopez from #moleg Senate Rules Committee members🤷🏼‍♀️
#Missouri “Right to Life” testifying in opposition to #SCR7 *of course*😒
MO Right to “Life” testifier doesn’t “believe” that pay is unequal, would have to see evidence of that.
Subsequent Christian woman testifies in *favor* of #SCR7, brings receipts regarding WWJD in form of biblical quotes. #moleg
That was Natalie White. Senator Schatz goes on the attack, equates #ERA with abortion. #SCR7 #moleg
Next we have testimony that #ERANOW will hurt working women and poor women, will result in cutting of funding to churches somehow 🤷🏼‍♀️
Ah! Senator Karla May is present as well.
Sen. Schatz had alternative interpretations of biblical quotes to Natalie White’s🤷🏼‍♀️, was quite displeased with her testimony.
#SCR7 #moleg
Students “For Life” testifying that #ERA would be harmful to women, would strip women of gender-specific protections.
It’s OK. I know feminist pro-choice activists who were sucked into that kind of thinking in their youth. They figure it out later. #SCR7 #moleg
Next: more outstanding testimony in favor of #SCR7; sorry I missed who delivered. #moleg
@LWV @NCJW @EmpowerMissouri @MissouriNAACP other organizations and a line of individuals submit written testimony in favor of #SCR7
Senator Rowden cuts the hearing short, as he had announced it would be time limited at the beginning.
@JillSchupp You are so appreciated! #moleg
The cherry on top: Lacking a paper clip, @SaraEBaker1 is submitting @aclu_mo testimony in favor of #SCR7 bound by a bobby pin! #ERANOW #moleg
