HHH (Hubert Humphrey) at DFL feminist caucus, on the ERA amendment, and need to educate those who are needed for its ratification. Humphrey says he was for this amendment when he first came to Congress in the 1950's because it made sense. "What we need to do is what we've done in the past, educate. We must address fears of those whose ratification is essential. The founders gave us the means and responsibility to right those wrongs that come to light. When we see a wrong we should correct it. What better way to celebrate the Bicentennial than to to reaffirm the constitution's promise of justice for all?"
