Equal Rights Amendment

Section 1. Equality of Rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or any state on account of sex.

Section 2. The Congress shall have the power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article.

Section 3. This amendment shall take effect two years after the date of ratification.

The Equal Rights Amendment was written in 1921 by suffragist Alice Paul. It has been introduced in Congress every session since 1923. It passed Congress in the above form in 1972, but was not ratified by the necessary thirty-eight states by the July 1982 deadline. It was ratified by thirty-five states.

      Petition Organizer

      What better way to celebrate International Women's Day than to protect our rights. Tell your stories to those too young to know what we have gained. Did you grow up before title 9? Were you allowed to take shop in high school? Were you told that if you were a boy you could be an engineer, or doctor? Did you get paid less than your male co-worker? Please today, share your stories. Tell our children. We don't have equal rights and what we have is threatened.

      There is still a glass ceiling and women still do not get equal pay and are not treated as an equal by men.
