Women's Equality Day. Post and Courier journalist Brian Hicks will join us to talk about some of the figures from his upcoming book, "In Darkest South Carolina," who fought to give women a political voice in Charleston, and the nation, both before and after the 19th Amendment was adopted.

Then Barbara Fry will give us a clear understanding of the significant impact the Equal Rights Amendment could have in the lives of women today, why women are incredibly vulnerable without it, and how you can add your voice to the cause.
