When the longest government shutdown in history came to a close, Representatives Carolyn B. Maloney (D-NY) and Jackie Speier (D-CA) wasted no time in getting back to the business of what matters: advancing equality.
In the United States of America, women are still not equal to men in the eye of the U.S. Constitution.
WASHINGTON — Actresses and activists Alyssa Milano and Patricia Arquette took their star power to the Capitol Tuesday to demand gender equality in the US Constitution.
“My name is Alyssa Miliano and in 2019, I do not have equal rights under the Constitution,” Milano said at an event to support the Equal Rights Amendment.
WASHINGTON -- Alyssa Milano has a vagina, but what she wants are equal rights.
The “Charmed” actress joined Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-N.Y.), fellow thespian Patrica Arquette and others Tuesday for a Capitol Hill rally to push for passage of the long-delayed Equal Rights Amendment.
Actresses Patricia Arquette and Alyssa Milano rallied on Capitol Hill alongside lawmakers Tuesday morning for the abolition of the ratification deadline and subsequent ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment.
"Women are not treated with the same value as men in America, and that stands to reason, as they have no value in their own Constitution," Arquette said.
