Ken Burns Argues One Vote Can Change History        Video        The New York Times        15 January 2020

 

Harnessing the power of its new Democratic majority,

the Virginia legislature is poised to vote this week

to become the 38th of the 38 states

needed to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment,

which would make women’s rights

explicit in the Constitution.

 

In the video Op-Ed above,

the filmmaker Ken Burns compares this historic moment

with the ratification of the 19th Amendment,

which granted women the right to vote 100 years ago.
