Equal Rights Amendment:  
Legal sex discrimination is not yet a thing of the past, and the progress of the past 60 years is not irreversible. The remaining gender inequities are more the product of individual behavior and social practices than from legal discrimination, but all can be positively influenced by a strong message when the U.S. Constitution declares zero tolerance for any form of sex discrimination.  The reasons why we need the ERA are at one level philosophical and symbolic, and at another level very specific and practical.  The first — and still the only — right that the U.S. Constitution specifically affirms equally for women and men is the right to vote.

Feministing:  A website blog collection of a broad range of intersectional feminist issues–from campus sexual violence to transgender rights to reproductive justice.

Know Your IX: Empowering Students to Stop Sexual Violence:  Founded in 2013, Know Your IX is a survivor- and youth-led project of Advocates for Youth that aims to empower students to end sexual and dating violence in their schools. We envision a world in which all students can pursue their civil right to educations free from violence and harassment. We recognize that gender violence is both a cause of inequity and a consequence of it, and we believe that women, transgender, and gender non-conforming students will not have equality in education or opportunity until the violence ends. We draw upon the civil rights law Title IX as an alternative to the criminal legal system — one that is more just and responsive to the educational, emotional, financial, and stigmatic harms of violence
