I Know There Are Leaguers...

ERA March and Rally at Union Square: Carol Whitesell, Diane Hastert, Pat Shutt, B. Buck, Sharon Yokote, Melvia Kawashima

"I know there are Leaguers who believe that we offer women a place of their own - self controlled proving ground to build confidence and to acquire strengths and skills. But the League never intended to be a safe harbor and certainly the early efforts of suffragette league leaders Carrie Chapman Catt, Belle Sherwin were directed at women playing a key role in political and social arenas - that we stopped chatting among ourselves and made our voices and opinions felt. We're involved in women's issues but not exclusively. The League is basically a public interest group which believes in and encourages citizen participation. If we're ready for ERA then we darn well ought to be ready for men."
