The Equal Rights Amendment: It's Not Over 'Til It's Over
If you think the Equal Rights Amendment died in the 1970s, do we have a story for you. It’s alive. And all we need is one more state before a feminist dream becomes actual American law.
"Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of sex."
“From that first anachronistic moment, meeting the ghost of Alice Paul, it was like complete certainty. This is what I need to do."
The state of play right now is that men and women are different, so some discrimination is allowed.
I expect there to be court battles. I expect people who do not think equality is important to become more vociferous in their opposition. But the fact will remain... The bulk of the battle will be complete.
