Every president, regardless of party, designates August 26 as Women's Equality Day, to commemorate women getting the vote in 1920. But do we really have it? Women are not yet in the U.S. constitution. Read the full description.

Wait_small Series host Martha Burk interviews Carolyn Maloney, U.S. Congresswoman from New York, and chief sponsor of the Equal Rights Amendment to the Constitution. The Amendment has been introduced in every congress since 1923, and sent to the states for ratification once -- where it failed three states short in 1982.

Maloney talks about why we need an ERA now more than ever, what needs to happen to get women in the constitution, and how the rights we have can be taken away by a hostile Congress. 

This interview is segment 1 of a one hour program that includes an interview with pollster Celinda Lake on what women are thinking prior to the 2012 election   http://www.prx.org/pieces/82517-what-do-women-want-in-2012-an-interview-with-poll 

Each segment can be broadcast as a stand-alone program, or combined for a one hour (56:49). Timing and cues for this segment and combined one hour show below.
