Equality Under the Law: History of the Equal Rights Amendment documents the rights of women under the law from the 17th century to present with a focus on the state of Georgia. Highlights include original suffrage pennants and letters from Susan B. Anthony; the origins of the National Women's Party; ephemera from the ERA campaign at the local, state, and national level; and materials from the anti-ERA movement and Phyllis Schlafly. This is an annual exhibit on women's history with materials drawn from the Lucy Hargrett Draper Center and Archives for the Study of the Rights of Women in History and Law, circa 1550-2050.
