by Nevada Democrats

Carson City, NV – Following the Nevada Legislature’s final ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment today, Nevada State Democratic Party First Vice Chair Marty McGarry issued the following statement applauding the vote:

“The ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment in Nevada is a milestone moment for women’s rights in our state and across the country. On behalf of Nevada Democrats, I want to commend Senator Pat Spearman for her unwavering commitment to full gender equality and her single-minded commitment to getting this passed. This wouldn’t have been possible without the dedication and advocacy of grassroots activists like our longtime office manager Naomi Millisor, who fought tirelessly for the ERA for decades and sadly did not live long enough to witness this historic victory. Whether it’s ensuring paycheck fairness or defending health care access, today is a reminder that the Democratic Party will always stand up for the full and equal rights of Nevada women.”
