We've come so far and yet...
My great aunt and her sister, my grandmother, both graduated from Smith College in the 1920s. The former became a legal secretary who worked for Ohio Senator Atlee Pomerene in Washington DC and was active in numerous associations. The latter became an electrical engineer with General Electric. My mother graduated from Northwestern Nursing School and ended up building a homestead cabin singlehandedly with my dad, a structural engineer. We never talked about politics or ERA. I sincerely look forward to the day my daughter and my grand-daughter will reap the benefits of ERA! Catherine--lives in France and votes in Alaska
