#TheReal10

About the campaign:

To commemorate 100 years since the passage of the 19th Amendment, the U.S. Treasury has announced it will put a woman on the $10 bill in 2020. But, the average woman is paid just 79 cents on the dollar, compared to men. To illustrate the irony of the situation, AAUW is making it easy to put your face on the real $10 bill and share it far and wide. Add your face in less than two minutes and call for real change at TheReal10.com.

Elect Her is the only program in the country that encourages and trains college women to run for student government and future political office.

Ratify the ERA

To ratify a constitutional amendment, three-quarters of states must then agree to the proposed amendment. To date, the ERA has only been ratified by 35 of the necessary 38 states, leaving men and women unequal under the U.S. Constitution.

The Equal Rights Amendment is a proposed amendment to the U.S. Constitution that would prohibit discrimination on the basis of sex.

Section 1: Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of sex.

Section 2: The Congress shall have the power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article.

Section 3: This amendment shall take effect two years after the date of ratification.
