In TX women who cared for children could be exempted from jury duty if they wished. My husband, a widower at the time, was called to jury duty. The judge would not release him as a doctor. His attorney spoke to the judge and said that he was a man responsible for the care of children and that he should be released from duty. Otherwise there would be gender discrimination. The judge actually agreed.
Rene Parmar
Child care needs to be more equally shared for other things to change.

RBG said that if the time for ratifying the ERA were extended the right to withdraw should also be allowed.

I see Adelaide has her hand raised.
