Meryl Streep Presses Congress for Gender Equality

To Congress, Love Meryl.”

Meryl Streep penned letters to each member of Congress rallying for the discussion of an Equal Rights Amendment to be reignited on Capitol Hill. This proposed revision to the United States Constitution that would guarantee equal rights for women has been in negotiation for over four decades.

Streep, who will portray political activist Emmeline Pankhurst in the upcoming film Suffragette insists that it’s time that decisions be made.

She pleads in her letter,

“I am writing to ask you to stand up for equality — for your mother, your daughter, your sister, your wife or yourself – by actively supporting the Equal Rights Amendment.”

It was reported by the Associated Press that Streep included a copy of the book “Equal Means Equal” by Jessica Neuwirth, president of the Equal Rights Amendment Coalition.

Streep suggests, “A whole new generation of women and girls are talking about equality — equal pay, equal protection from sexual assault, equal rights,” opening the amendment’s relevance to the modern feminine discussion.

These revolutionary letters were sent the day after her birthday, because that’s how a power player celebrates her existence.

Need we provide further evidence that Streep deserves a spot on the $10 bill?

We rest our case.
