We had a full house at the Equal Means Equal showing and event at UNC-CH on 9/15/17. The week from 9/10/17 to 9/17/17 was full of Equal Means Equal showings on university campuses around the state., organized by Campus4ERA, ERA-NC Alliance and NC4ERA. The showing at UNC-CH was extra special, with top notch feminists on a panel after the screening. Feminist Majority Foundation Ellie Smeal! ERA Coalition president Jessica Neuwirth! Senator Pat Spearman, who recently led the effort to ratify ERA in Nevada! And our own ERA leaders in NC – Senator Floyd McKissick and Rep. Carla Cunningham! Emily Hagstrom was the student representative, and UNC-CH’s Dr. Gloria Thomas moderated. Not surprisingly, the room was full! Mostly students and also members of our organizations. NOW members came from Chapel Hill, Durham, Raleigh and Fayetteville.
Here is Ellie Smeal engaging our next generation into the fight.
