Should women expect President Obama to push for the ratification and passage of the Equal Rights Amendment?
"Yes! He has not kept up his promise to the biggest group who elected him -- women. He needs to work on passing the ERA ASAP, as well as not concede anymore on important issues such as Medicaid, Social Security, reproductive justice and more, which impact women more than men."
-Jerin Arifa

My entire quote:
Now that he has won, I can be honest about how disappointed I have been with him. The war mongering with the drone attacks aside, he has not kept up his promise to the biggest group who elected him - women. He needs to work on passing the ERA ASAP, as well as not concede anymore on important issues such as Medicaid, Social Security, reproductive justice and more, which impact women more than men. He and so many democrats come from a place of fear, with a relationship similar to that of a victim/abuser with the GOP - making themselves believe that the abuser will be nice if they just give them what they want. As we have witnessed with the Tea Party, they don't care how much we concede. The Dems need to develop courage and do the right thing.
