Political strategist Mary Patricia Wray and LSU-Shreveport Political Scientist Jeff Sadow examine the politics of the Equal Rights Amendment in the Louisiana Legislature. Last week, a Senate panel advanced the measure on a party line vote 47 years after the Louisiana Senate approved ERA on a 25-13 vote. The Louisiana House killed the measure in 1972. Dr. Fiona Citkin, a Fulbright scholar from Ukraine, reflects on immigration in America. Her book “How They Made it in America” focuses on women who immigrated from 16 different countries, including Ivana Trump from the Czech Republic
