CHICAGO-It was, according
some, the perfect Mother's Day gift
the families of Illinois.
In fact, mothers-and people of
ages and both sexes-marched by
tens of thousands in Illinois' largest c

to approve the Equal Rights Am

Their reasons for marching were
varied as the localities from which tlh

When it last came up for a vote in

ERA has already been ratified by

about 100 other members of her Chic

belief in women's rights, but rat
"individual rights," that prompted
to participate in the event.

Actress Marlo Thqmas, one of the
speakers at Saturday's rally, said "the
best hedge a man has against hard
times is a free woman."
"WOMEN IN ILLINOIS will never be
the same again because of the ERA,"
said noted feminist Betty Friedan. R
Friedan said she believes Illinois
political leaders "are beginning to get
the message," but she warned state
legislators that if they "play games, it
will be the end of a lot of political
careers."

she heard STOP-ERA organizer Phyllis
