Here we are today with our second presentation and despite the progress being made women and girls - especially women and girls of color - still face systemic barriers to full participation and wider gaps in opportunity and equality.  The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed and exacerbated those disparities which have disproportionately impacted women's labor force participation, multiplied the burden on paid and unpaid caregivers, and increased rates of gender-based violence.  The Congress sent the Equal Rights Amendment to the States for ratification 50 years ago and it is long past time that the principle of women's equality should be enshirined in our Constitution.  These celebrated words are included in the annual special proclamation on Women's History Month, issued by the President of the USA.  We have included the proclamation from President Joseph R. Biden Jr. for your reading pleasure.  As we continued to celebrate weekly, please join the SBC Memorial and Historical Commission in celebration of Our Second Women's History Month Woman/Georgia Ann Robinson.
