  1. Thank you very much for your piece on rape culture. I am one of now over 50 women who came forward in 2005 and last year to share my experiences of being drugged and assaulted by Bill Cosby. Did you know that the Equal Rights Amendment – first put forward in 1923 and finally passed in 1972 was never ratified by the required number of states? This means that women do not have equal rights and protections under the Constitution. It was never formally made an amendment. Many of the Cosby survivors have been working on a state by state basis to change or extend the statute of limitations regarding reporting sexual assaults, but I believe this will do little good unless a cultural shift occurs. It is a matter of national shame that we have not amended our Constitution to protect women after all these years. There is a new draft ERA amendment done in 2009, but it has not been put forward yet in proposal form. I believe that the U.S. needs to make this a priority if it wishes to continue to be respected in the world for any kind of leadership. One of our group members was recently on KGO Talk Radio in San Francisco. One of the show topics was the extension of the statute of limitations. The only callers were male and they all unanimously declared that they should NOT be extended. Of COURSE they feel this way. The statutes protect men! I’ve started an online petition at Change.org to get the ERA passed and ratified. If you’re interested, I’ll send you the link. Thanks again for your article.
