The ERA that’s waiting to start 1923

Alice Paul and Crystal Eastman founders of The ERA- Equal Rights Amendment has been trying to past the ERA in Congress in the United States since 1923. Guaranteeing equal rights to all men and women. Its still being fought now! I am amazed by this!

The United States join 6 other countries in the world; Iran, Somali, Sudan, South Sudan, Tonga and Palua. That have not ratified the UN Convention on the elimination on all forms of discrimination of women. Maybe Donald Trump could be the pioneer?

If you have time check out the link below its nuts the history behind this amendment. Why would anyone oppose this? its just makes sense. Don’t we all deserve basic rights to an equal society?

I live in the UK and the equivalent act is the Equal Act of 2010 which was formed on the anti-discrimination law.

I guess living in the UK I have taken this for granted and just assumed that this protection of Law would be widely recognised world wide.

‘Free The Nipple’ has become the fastest growing movement of our time. The mission behind ‘Free The Nipple’ is to raise awareness, and effect change, in the areas of inequality for women and men that are still being experienced in the world today.

The image that accompanies this post is a self portrait of myself for a ‘Free The Nipple’ Exhibition opening on the 1st Sept at The Creative Bubble in Swansea Wales. I will be showing my work along side other vibrant and exciting artists. Very pleased to be part of such an important campaign.
