One Book One LCC - The Hate U Give (2018-2019): Women's Rights
Feminism: A Very Short IntroductionThis book provides an historical account of feminism, exploring its earliest roots as well as key issues including voting rights, the liberation of the sixties, and its relevance today. Margaret Walters touches on the difficulties and inequities that women still face more than forty years after the 'new wave' of 1960s feminism, such as how successful women are at combining domesticity, motherhood, and work outside the house. She brings the subject completely up to date by providing an analysis of the current situation of women across the globe, from Europe and the United States to Third World countries.
The proposed Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) was passed by the U.S. Congress in 1972, but it requires ratification by 38 states before it can be added to the U.S. Constitution. Currently only 37 states have ratified the ERA. This proposed amendment states, "Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of sex."
