Transcript N.O.W. DECLARES STATE OF EMERGENCY ON E.R.A. All N.O.W. resources and efforts are being directed toward ratification of the E.R.A. and extension of the deadline for ratification an additional seven years. The National Board declared a state of emergency February 26 after a detailed briefing on the status of the E.R.A. N.O.W. President Eleanor Smeal urged: "There comes a time to gather the courage of our convictions, the strength of our unity, the passion of our commitment and declare that we are pledged to do all that is humanly possible to pass the seven-year extension of the deadline for ratification of the E.R.A. (H.J. Res. 638) in this session of Congress." Why is this such a critical time? With only 3 more states needed to complete the ratification process, the E.R.A. seemed almost won. The majority of Americans support the E.R.A.: the latest Roper Poll showed that nationally 53% of the public support the E.R.A. and only 22% actually oppose it (the rest are undecided). Even in unratified states the majority support the E.R.A.: for example, in Missouri, the St. Louis GLOBE-DISPATCH found 60% of registered voters favor passage of the E.R.A. and only 27% oppose it. Over 200 organizations, representing women, religious, political, labor, civil rights, professional, and educational members, have endorsed the E.R.A. More than 120 groups refuse to schedule conventions and meetings in unratified states. (continued on page 2)
