Coinciding with the U.S. House of Representatives’ vote on the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA), Independent Women’s Voice (IWV) hosted a national press call featuring statements from House Minority Whip Steve Scalise and several female representatives on the threat that the misnamed ERA poses to women. The ERA would jeopardize women-only spaces, such as battered women’s shelters, prisons, sports teams, dorm rooms, sororities, and more. Adopting the ERA will erase these protections and many others from the law.
The call will took place on Wednesday, March 17th at 5 pm ET.
Participants on the call include Rep. Steve Scalise, House Minority Whip; Reps. Debbie Lesko (AZ-08); Carol Miller (WV-03); Beth Van Duyne (TX-24); Virginia Foxx (NC-05); and Vicky Hartzler (MO-04). Also joining the call will be Jennifer C. Braceras, director of Independent Women’s Law Center, and Inez Stepman, a senior policy analyst at Independent Women’s Voice.
