Rehearsing my story this afternoon with Storyteller Geraldine Buckley. Excellent feed-back.
Good to have a new ear on the story -
Robin called, "Mom, your first performance is July 9. Did you realize that's the same date as the 1978 NOW ERA MARCH on the Mall?"
I will be telling my story - 32 years later - just a dozen blocks from the Washington Mall.
Yes, I was there. Wearing white, marching under the Coalition of Women's Arts Organizations banner.
Were you there?

It was hot and humid that day but that did not dampen our spirits or slow us down. I was excited to be a part of the historic moment when 100,000 women - wearing white - converged on the Washington Mall to support the Equal Rights Amendment.
I had no idea that my being there on July 9, 1978 was just the beginning of my personal journey with the Equal Rights Amendment.
