 About Delaware ERANow

Delaware ERANow is committed to reversing the history of personal social and economic discrimination women continue to experience
by:

  • Securing Delaware’s state and federal officials’ active support
    and pursuit of passage and ratification of the ERA.
  • Educating Delawareans about the importance of the ERA and
    the positive impacts it will have on women’s and men’s quality
    of life.
  • Building broad-based and lasting support and advocacy in
    Delaware for passage and ratification of the ERA.
  • Ensuring that more women are involved in the political process.

READ the Federal ERA resolutions

Ruth Bader Ginsburg

“Every constitution written since the end of World War II includes a provision that men and women are citizens of equal stature. Ours does not. I have three granddaughters. I’d like them to be able to take out their Constitution and say, ‘Here is a basic premise of our system, that men and women are persons of equal stature.’ But it’s not in there.”
— Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

About Ready to Run® Delaware

In legislatures across the country, including the U. S. Congress, men outnumber women legislators by 8 to 2, To reduce this glaring imbalance, more women must become more involved in the political parties and campaigns, seek appointment to boards and commissions, and run for local, state, and federal elective office.
