Florida & the Equal Rights Amendment
I have completed an article about the fight in the 1970s to pass the Equal Rights Amendment in Florida. I am focusing on Florida media coverage, especially that of Florida State Senator Lori Wilson, pictured in this post. Wilson was married to Gannett newspaper executive Al Neuharth, a real champion for women. Al promoted women's page journalists Gloria Biggs and Marj Paxson into executive positions in later years.
UPDATE: The article has been accepted.
