Join Us This #GivingTuesday
November 29, 2022. It’s #GivingTuesday. Ready to join Shattering Glass in the fight for gender equity and gender equality?
Shattering Glass is working to ensure that our daughters, granddaughters and their children can achieve their dreams, know their worth, and live in a world free of barriers, discrimination and bias. We do this through advocacy, education and outreach, working to eliminate discrimination and bias and to secure recognition of the ratified federal Equal Rights Amendment, paid family leave, equal pay and economic security, reproductive freedom, and equal opportunities regardless of gender.
Our recent efforts have been laser focused on the publication of the ERA as the 28th Amendment to our Constitution. We have met with Governors, U.S. Senators and Representatives from twelve different states, labor unions and medical associations to build a coalition of support for ERA publication. The next few weeks and months are critical to finally guaranteeing constitutional equality for women, girls and LGBTQIA+ persons as well as protecting reproductive rights for all Americans.
Constitutional equality is a crucial first step in the fight for gender equity and gender equality as it insulates the fundamental rights of women, girls and LGBTQIA+ persons from the whims of politicians and the judges they appoint. Something we now know is critical following the recent Supreme Court decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization.
Today is #GivingTuesday, and together we can do even more to make gender equality a reality. In the current environment, our work is more important and, sadly, more challenging than ever. And we cannot do this without you! It will take a loud, collective voice to win the fight.
