In 2020, women are not in the US Constitution...and they never have been. Now, nearly 100 years after the Equal Rights Amendment was first introduced, it is on the cusp of finally being ratified. From Wonder Media Network, Ordinary Equality tells the full story of a landmark amendment that passed, failed, was resurrected, and now has the potential to change US history once and for all. Host and human rights attorney Kate Kelly presents the untold stories of the revolutionaries, the activists, the dissenters, and so much more, all set against a comprehensive framework of US legal, political and cultural context over the last century. As Alice Paul, author of the ERA, said, “Most reforms, most problems are complicated. But, to me there is nothing complicated about ordinary equality.”
