A Day to Remember

July, 1978

The ERA MARCH, Washington Mall, Washington, DC

More than 100,000 women wearing white – the connection to the women who fought for the Vote – marched in favor of Congress granting an extension on the time given to pass the Equal Rights Amendment.

When the vote was taken that year  theygranted an additional three years.

I was there that day marching with a group under the flag of the Coalition of Women’s Arts Organizations.

It was an exciting, energizing, and hopeful gathering on a very hot and humid Summer day in Washington. We were part of women’s  history.

Those days were filled with challenges. The memories of the times and the people are vivid for me
and being a part of the 1970s Women’s Movement changed my life.

Pushing Boundaries is my personal story of those days – –

I will be telling PUSHING BOUNDARIES:

2 PM  Thursday  September 10 at the International Storytelling Center, Jonesborough, TN

7:30 PM  Wednesday, September 16, Friendship Heights Village Com. Ctr., Chevy Chase, MD

I hope women will come to hear this story and to remember their own.

One thought on “A Day to Remember

  1. being interviewed for an oral history of the ERA at Meredith College tomorrow morning. Much love to you for all your guidance. I’ve been looking through my journal of our time together. WOW. would love to talk to you. I’m retired, volunteer for the LWV Lobbying for redistricting reform and taking watercolor classes. Just gave a training session for the LWV on Lobbying. I can’t believe the years that have passed since I saw you at Meredith at your great art show.
