Democracy and the Equal Rights Amendment
A Conversation with Gloria Steinem

Headshots of four speakers

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?

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
