Advancing Delaware Women’s Equality and Empowerment

Our Mission

Delaware ERANow is committed to achieving greater recognition and protection of women’s rights and preparing them to take seats at the tables where decisions affecting their and their family’s interests and concerns are determined.

In its relatively short history (founded in late 2015), Delaware ERANow has successfully focused on two initiatives. First, it has played a central role in the passage of an Equal Rights Amendment to Delaware’s Constitution in 2018. We look forward to its final passage and enactment by Delaware’s General Assembly in 2019. Upon enactment of the state ERA,  attention will return to assisting passage of a federal ERA. Second, in 2017 our inaugural, nonpartisan Ready to Run® Delaware campaign training program for women contributed to the record number of women running for elective office in the state.

Equal Rights Amendment for Women                  ERANow Breaking News

Ready to Run® Delaware’s October 2017 program was a great success. Program alumnae were elected to New Castle County Council, the Delaware House, and the Delaware Senate. Not coincidentally, female representation increased for all three of these legislative bodies. More information here.

Keep the momentum going and counter the trend in Delaware where the proportion of women in Delaware’s General Assembly fell from 33% in 2006 to 21% in 2018.

Stay tuned for more information about the 2019 Ready to Run® Delaware  program as we continue to prepare more women for elective office.
