    “Show up at 1 to show your dismay at Eddie Farnsworth’s (Judiciary Chair) refusal to hear HCR2011 & HCR2012 then file into committee in our sashes. You may request to speak on any bill on the agenda, we can show you how before the committee.

    If you’d like to participate as a handmaid we’ll have loaner capes & bonnets for you. We’ll have dozens of sashes on hand and other items to make a great visual demonstration. Feel free to bring a sign advocating for Equal Rights for Women!”

      • It’s amazing to me that Arizona has not ratified the Equal Rights Amendment. I am from the State of Hawaii, which was proudly the first to ratify it on March 22, 1972.
