    The supporters were few and largely composed of the contingent represented by Ellie Smeal, Feminist Majority, and Ms. Magazine, and some young people from the National Assoc. of University Women–an organization I also belonged to over the years. LuAnn from ERA NOW on facebook was present as well as the president of Virginia NOW–Marj Signer, and her legislative director. Of course Terry gave her first official address as President of NOW in support of the ERA. The most impressive speech came from an African American congresswoman from Texas (forget name) who had the guts to present the issue of misogamy. Did not hear that from the others in association with why ERA is much more than equal pay and a line in the constitution? Unfortunately, I found Terry to be quite nervous and bland in what she felt ERA means. It was her first day so many of us still are playing a wait and see game regarding the ability of NOW to be an effective organization under her administration and understand that it is at least a major improvement. Carolyn Mahoney is facing a fight back home in NY so this is one way of edging that gap so I really am questioning her real enthusiasm to fight for ERA. Sorry for the negativity but one got certain impressions from being present as I did not hear any NEW approach to moving this along but plenty of campaign buttons being passed around during her speech.

    What I can relate as a real negative of the day is that Marj Signer introduced herself to me wanting to know the face on the other end of the responses to her heavily, one-sided Virginia emails. Marj is typical of the failure of NOW over the last years as she is EXTREMELY single minded of the Democratic political kind and accused me of not believing in Democracy and was quick to criticize me and the blogs upon which I speak such as this one and Sins of Omission with Paulie Abeles. She was loudly verbal about my campaigning for both a Democratic woman and Bob McDonnell (not yet sold on ERA). Bob is the best gov. candidate for Virginia’s economic woes and gaining support from women in recent weeks as we are finding Republicans to be real listeners on women’s issues vs. the Dem verbage. I am a Democrat but answered Marj with the fact that I am smart enough to put character and issues over any party and stated that NOW must represent ALL women and not just Democratic & liberal females? It seems that the organization that we look to for help on building a better world for ALL women is very biased in both their issues and their politics. It seems given her definition of NOW one must be pro choice and liberal or we do not believe in either Democracy and the Constitution. My final response to Marj was that it was easy to see why both Virginia and the National organizations are badly in need of money and losing membership rapidly. There was simply no way to misunderstand her statements yesterday and what seemed apparent during the speech making–more of the same. Let’s see what Terry brings but right now I am less optimistic. It will take other than NOW to bring the ERA movement home and a better, stronger and more effective organization who really are FOR WOMEN. My renewal application still remains on my desk waiting and watching??

    In short, I was there supporting all things in which I believe and in light of support for ALL women rising in power in this country, as NOW should represent, I even said Hello with others to Pelosi who we met crossing the street as she was returning from lunch. I had to bite my tongue but if ERA is to succeed we women have to stick together without criticism and downgrading. Lunch at Bullfeathers on Capitol Hill was even more interesting over the Health care politics and overhearing words between the politicians and lobbyists? Good thing it was entertaining as the food was expensive and not really that good–again DC?

    Well it is DC and reality never hits home here in the bubble?
