Democracy and the Equal Rights Amendment
A Conversation with Gloria Steinem
Friday, September 16 | 4:30 p.m. | John M. Greene
What is the relationship of equality and democracy? Would recognition of the ERA strengthen U.S. democracy? What would the ERA mean for the lives of women and gender minorities? Would it help to secure reproductive rights post-Roe? Join us for a conversation about these questions and the ongoing fight for the ERA with Gloria Steinem ’56; Carol Jenkins, president emerita of the ERA Coalition; and Mona Sinha ’88, board chair of the ERA Fund for Women’s Equality. Moderated by Becca Damante ’17, legislative assistant, U.S. Congress. In-person event at 4:30 p.m. in John M. Greene is open to Smith students, staff and faculty. Community members may watch via a Livestream.

A More Flexible Future
"The [no-loans] initiative will allow me to take more volunteer opportunities during the school year. Instead of looking for ways to pay for Smith, I will be volunteering in the local food bank and hospital. The decision will also allow me to start saving for my MCAT exams, medical school applications, and medical school." —Mariam Ahmed '24
