Transcript Dear Senator YorK: We appreciate your efforts to help ratify the Equal Rights Amendment. Don't give up. Equality for women deserves extraordinary leadership and extraordinary effort. Most Oklahomans, as well as most of the nation, are for ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment. We will never forget those who persist in the fight to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment. Don't let Oklahoma block equal rights for women under the law in this century. Speaker Hi aper: bear Oklahoma r.m st ill ratify the Equal Rights Amendment before .June 30, 1982. Don't give up on your fight to help make Oklahoma break the log j.jm for equal i ty for women. Denial of women's equality in 1982 will be a national disgrace, and certainly a disgrace to the Oklahoma house if it fails to ratify. Most Oklahomans and most Americans support the Equal Rights Amendment. Provide extraordinary leadership for women's equality. No modern leader can be proud of action which blocks justice for women. Make sure it doesn't happen in the Oklahoma House. Dear Governor Graham, The nation is counting on your leadership to help win passage of the Equal Rights Amendment. Florida is one of the first states in 1982 to vote on ratification of ERA. The outcome in Florida may well set the precedent for the votes in other state legislatures which follow. Your leadership in helping win passage of the ERA will benefit not only the women of Florida but women all across the nation. I urge you to establish your place in history by providing your leadership in this historic vote. Dear Mr. Haben, N I urge you to use your considerable influence to he)y> ^ passage of the Equal Rights Amendment. Florida is one of the first states to vote on ERA i^ V" Passage of ERA in Florida will set precedent for statesftf* follow. The entire nation is watching and counting on foj Your vote will not only benefit elderly women in FJA.fW* women from all walks of life both in Florida and all acjto^ nation. *** Please let history record your positive leadership 6?t of women in Florida and all across the nation. Dear Senator Watson: Who represents Republicans who are for the Equal Rights Amendment? A majority of Republicans and Democrats support equal rights for women and the ERA. Women everywhere are withdrawing their support from the Republican Party because of its failure to support the Equal Rights Amendment. Your block "no" votes in the Oklahoma Senate make many nationwide despair. Allow Republicans to vote their constituencies. Surely some Republican senators must represent those for the Amendment. Will the Republican Party be remembered as those who blocked progress for women in the 1980's? Remember, a vote against the Equal Rights Amendment is a vote against women's rights. Dear Rep. McCaleb: Most Republicans, Democrats, and Oklahomans as well as Americans in general support equal rights for women and the Equal Rights Amendment. Yet, Republicans in the Oklahoma legislature are lagging behind in the drive for more opportunity, education, and decent wages for American women. As a leader of Republicans in the House of.Representatives, can help reverse the trend of most Republican legislators in the Oklahoma House being opposed to the Equal Rights Amendment. i you Before it's too late, rethink your position -- stop blocking progress for American women. Help ratify the Equal Rights Amendment. A vote against the Equal Rights Amendment is a vote against women's rights. Dear Governor Nigh: Equality for women deserves extraordinary leader- ship. We apprecite you support for the Equal Rights Amendment. We need you to lead a special drive for ratification in your state. Most Oklahomans, Democrats, and Republicans support the Equal Rights Amendment. When Oklahomans are shown the text of the Equal Rights Amendment, 80% of them support it. People nationwide want equal rights for women. You have in your power the opportunity to help ratify the Equal Rights Amendment. Don't lose this opportunity to lead the fight for equality for women. It will be a national discgrace, and certainly a disgrace to oklahoma, if women are denied equality in 1982. Dear President Reagan: A majority of Americans, a majority of Republicans, a majority of Democrats, and an overwheling majority of women support the Equal Rights Amendment. It is time you changd your position on the ERA. The polls show both the Republicans and you are losing support from women because of your lack of support for women's rights. Support of the ERA can reverse this trend. Your case-by-case, statue-by-statue approach for women's rights simply is not working and cannot work. Will you be remembered as the President who tried to reverse progress for women in this country and who blocked the EQual Rights Amendment? Four months remain. We urge you to reverse your position on the ERA before it is too late.
