The Democrats have introduced a resolution for the Equal Rights Amendment for Women during every session of Congress since 1982. Each time it has been sent to die in Committee. But Congresswoman Shiloh Catherine Giles isn’t going to let that happen this time.In addition to being a member of Congress, Shiloh is also an Episcopal minister, which gives her a unique view on the battles on Capitol Hill. She’s a staunch champion for women’s rights, and she knows that passing this resolution is paramount to her cause. Rather than follow the resolution route, Shiloh introduces the ERA as an amendment to the defense appropriations bill, insuring that it will be debated on the floor of Congress.Shiloh gathers a grass roots constituency to work for passage, ratification, and approval of the amendment. Unfortunately, there are those that don’t want her to succeed. The zealous religious right and higher powers at the White House are against her every move. Yet Shiloh refuses to give up, knowing that her cause will benefit millions of American women. When her crusade takes a dangerous turn, Shiloh must fight for her very life.A gripping tale of politics, prejudice, and greed, The Giles Amendment explores one woman’s dedication and spirit against overwhelming odds. 3
