EVST Daily Dose: 5.21.08

With the politics the way they are now, it's time to show your political prowess - with style. ;)

This silver tone bracelet from SweetWhimsyVintage bears the initials ERA for the Equal Rights Amendment!

This bracelet has a clean and modern simple design with the initials ERA on it. It is marked LWVUS, Nickel Silver. It reminds me of the POW MIA bracelets of the 1970’s. This historic bracelet was produced for the LWVUS League of Women Voters of the United States of America. They were popular in the 70’s and 80’s, I found references to them as early as 1966. Each state needed to ratify the amendment. The bracelets were ordered through LWVUS. It is in good vintage condition with normal wear.
