After the 1920 victory, she authored the Equal Rights Amendment and initiated gender equality principles in both the United Nations Charter and in the 1964 Civil Rights Act.

The evening will be hosted by members of the Alice Paul Institute’s Girls Advisory Council and 2013 Equality honoree Wendy Johnson Lario, the chair of New Jersey Labor and Employment Practice at Greenburg Traurig LLP.
