In this episode, I speak with Ting Ting Cheng, Director of the ERA Project, and Kati Hornung, Director of VoteEqualityUS, about the current status of the Equal Rights Amendment and why the amendment is so vital in 2022. Ting Ting and Kati discuss their varying perspectives and skill sets when tackling the ERA, and what they say to people who think gender equality is a passé issue or something that’s already been achieved. They also discuss the motivations behind the new and improved pocket Constitutions, and what things they believe would be different in this country if the ERA were part of the Constitution. Ting Ting and Kati also speak about the litigation strategy for the ERA and the best ways for others to get involved.

The Jabot podcast is an offshoot of the Above the Law brand focused on the challenges women, people of color, LGBTQIA, and other diverse populations face in the legal industry. Our name comes from none other than the Notorious Ruth Bader Ginsburg and the jabot (decorative collar) she wore when delivering dissents from the bench. It’s a reminder that even when we aren’t winning, we’re still a powerful force to be reckoned with.

Happy listening!
