The ERA is a proposed amendment to the United States Constitution that would expressly prohibit discrimination against girls and women on the basis of gender. Today, the Constitution does not guarantee equal rights for women. As the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia stated: "Certainly the Constitution does not require discrimination on the basis of sex. The only issue is whether it prohibits it. It doesn't." In 1972, the Equal Rights Amendment was passed by the House and the Senate but fell short of the required number of states for ratification by the 1982 deadline. Earlier this year, Nevada became the first state in 40 years to vote for ratification of the ERA. Nevada's action highlights the growing awareness of and support for the Equal Rights Amendment, which is needed to help women secure justice when they face gender-based discrimination and violence. Women get paid on average 80 cents for every dollar a white man makes, according to the American Association of University Women, even less for women of color. Over half a million of women are subjected to domestic violence every year, more than 1,600 of whom lose their lives as a result, as reported by the Bureau of Justice Statistics. Since 1971, the iconic photo of Steinem and Pitman Hughes raising their fists in solidarity has been recognized as an enduring symbol of women's empowerment and the ongoing fight for constitutional equality. The image, by photographer Dan Wynn, now hangs in the National Portrait Gallery and in the Black Power section of the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C. Release of the iconic image comes in conjunction with the national Women's Equality Day, August 26, 2017, which was also established in 1971. Celebrities recreate iconic photo, 100% of net proceeds to ERA Coalition  In the 46 years since the photo was taken, Steinem and Pitman Hughes continue to advocate for the ERA and are inspiring support across generations of women and men. Gillian Anderson, Patricia Arquette, Kristin Bauer, Kelen Coleman, Lena Dunham, America Ferrara, Jane Fonda, Josh Gad, Chelsea Handler, Christine Lahti, Cyndi Lauper, Debra Messing, Bette Midler, Jennifer Morrison, Amy Schumer, Rainn Wilson, Joss Whedon, Jamia Wilson and Robin Wright are among the celebrities who have taken to Twitter and Instagram to share photos of themselves wearing the T-shirts and raising their fists in solidarity. 100 percent of the net proceeds from the charity T-shirt sales will go to support the ERA Coalition, a national organization working for passage and ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment to guarantee equality under the Constitution for women and girls. The ERA Coalition supports ERA initiatives in Congress and works with local and national organizations across the country to build a public constituency for the ERA, through outreach and education. "After that photo was taken, it was sent out to campuses and neighborhood groups where Dorothy and I were speaking on equal rights," said Steinem. "Today hundreds of thousands of us stand together, especially the new generations of women and men who are becoming powerful voices for the ERA." "The passage of the ERA will help women — and when you help women, you help everybody," said Pitman Hughes. "Today I work in underserved communities to help stimulate business growth, create jobs, and develop a vibrant ecosystem where diversity thrives. To really make that sustainable, we need the ERA. When women get equal pay and equal protection, their families, their communities, and our economy will certainly benefit." "Gloria and Dorothy's Equal Rights Now Tee" can be purchased immediately at Represent.com/equalrights.  The shirts, which come in several styles for women and men, will be available for a limited time only. The ERA will protect women's rights Since the 2016 presidential election, support for the ERA is surging, as growing numbers of Americans seek to address pay inequity, pregnancy discrimination, and gender-based violence. 94 percent of Americans polled in a 2016 survey said they would support an amendment to the U.S. Constitution that guarantees equal rights for both men and women. "More and more Americans are beginning to understand that the ERA would provide a constitutional framework to promote equality and a more effective remedy for all forms of gender-based violence and discrimination," said Jessica Neuwirth, president of the ERA Coalition. "So many young women and men are working at a grassroots level for passage of the ERA. Middle school, high school, and college students are reaching out to ask what they can do to support constitutional equality. Their awareness and activism make us confident that the ERA will finally be put into the Constitution." Women's Equality Day Women's Equality Day was originally created in 1971 by Rep. Bella Abzug of New York City, to commemorate the 1920 certification of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, which granted women the right to vote. Women's Equality Day not only commemorates the passage of the 19th Amendment, but it also calls attention to the movement for passage of the Equal Rights Amendment, which will guarantee equality under the Constitution for women and girls. Bringing together more than a hundred organizations and millions of women and men, the ERA Coalition is a national organization that is building a successful coalition for passage and ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) and promoting greater public understanding of the need for equal treatment of women under the law.

"We are proud to add ERA Vietnam to our international portfolio," said Sue Yannaccone, president and CEO of ERA Real Estate. "As a global company, we are continuously seeking to increase our footprint and this latest agreement fortifies the presence of the ERA franchise system in the Asia-Pacific region." ERA Vietnam is now one of eight markets in which ERA Asia-Pacific operates, joined by Singapore, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia. Jack Chua, chief executive for ERA Asia-Pacific, said, "Vietnam is an up and coming country that saw tremendous growth in home sales last year, due in large part to government measures to improve urbanization." According to Tuan Thanh Pham, chief operating officer of ERA Vietnam, the brokerage operates three ERA-branded real estate offices with 150 affiliated sales associates serving Ho Chi Minh City. He anticipates the ability to tap into the area's growth potential with expansion plans targeting Hanoi and Da Nang. Chua also noted that ERA Vietnam will benefit from strong referral channels with its ERA operations in Singapore, a popular target for Vietnamese residents purchasing properties abroad. Eurocapital is one of Vietnam's leading real estate brokerage, consultancy and investment advisory companies, and was responsible for nearly $90 million in sales volume in 2016. As an ERA-affiliated operation, the local team will benefit from the proven professional development programs of the ERA system that focus on increasing productivity to fuel growth. "ERA Real Estate was the first residential real estate brand to expand internationally, when ERA Japan was established in 1981, quickly followed by its expansion into Singapore in 1982, then Taiwan and Indonesia in 1991," said Yannaccone. "As stalwart brand ambassadors, our Asia-Pacific affiliates have played an integral role in shaping the brand's enduring reputation around the globe and we are excited to welcome ERA Vietnam to our international network."

A ribbon crystal has a body with a width dimension, and string embedded within the body. The string has a generally concave cross-sectional shape. This cross-section (of the string) has a generally longitudinal axis that diverges with the width dimension of the ribbon crystal body.


A structure for guiding light into a light guide plate to conduct total internal reflection comprises a guide light plate and a prism; the prism is integrated with the guide light plate or joined to the guide light plate with an optical adhesive layer; the horizontal surface of the prism is parallel to the upper and lower surfaces of the guide light plate; the maximum angle between the horizontal surface and the slant surface of the prism is only 20 degrees to reduce the thickness of the prism greatly to meet requirements of lightness, thinness, shortness, and smallness for the electronic product; due to a special configuration of the prism and a special arrangement between the guide light plate and the prism, the most part of the light shot to the prism by the light source with any projecting angle is guided into the guide light plate to propagate the total internal reflection such that the light has an intensity capable of being sensed.
