Born in Florida in 1935, Margaret Miller Curtis earned a bachelor’s degree in education from Florida State University and taught elementary school in Florida and Ohio. In 1973 she moved to Georgia and became active in the women’s movement, expressing her Christian faith in her activism for women’s rights. A writer, speaker, lobbyist and fund-raiser for a number of organizations, she was chair of the Speaker’s Bureau for ERA Georgia, Inc. (1979-1980), president of People of Faith for the ERA in Georgia (1980-1982), and on the board of directors for the Council on Battered Women (1975, 1986-88). Curtis “specialized” in newspaper publicity and letter writing and over 500 of her letters to the editor have been published, including many she authored for others. These letters, which she continues to write, have addressed the ERA and other women’s issues.

  1. Whole life plan is more expensive when compared
    with term life insurance because of its investment feature.
    And you are ready to take the next step – which is to document the damage and get an adjuster
    to your house as soon as possible to begin the process of submitting
    an insurance claim. You probably know that having car insurance is a law and that there are lots of types
    of car insurance to get, but do you know how to get those cheap
    car insurance rates online and still get the coverage you need.
