Description

In March 2017, Nevada surprised the rest of the country by suddenly ratifying the Equal Rights Amendment, thirty-five years after the deadline had passed. The ERA is now just two states short of total ratification.

Two states and a legacy of shame are standing between American women and full equality.

She the People takes on the campaign for change by offering a sweeping, highly illustrated, sometimes sarcastic look at women's rights and citizenship. Journalist, historian, and activist Jen Deaderick takes readers on a walk down the ERA's rocky road to become part of our Constitution. Divided into 12 historical periods between 1776 and today, each era highlights specific changes in the legal status of women along with the significant cultural and social influences of the time, so women's history is understood as an integral part of U.S. history, rather than a tangential sideline.

Clever and dynamic, She the People is informative, entertaining, and a vital reminder that women still aren't fully accepted as equal citizens in America.
