Ratify the Equal Rights Amendment
A Petition to be delivered to all U.S. Senators, all Members of the U.S. House of Representatives, and to all State lawmakers Ratify the Equal Rights Amendment NOW Are you aware that Women’s Rights are not in the U.S. Constitution? Ask around. Many people mistakenly believe Women’s Rights are already in the U.S. Constitution. They’re not. Wait. What? They’re not? They’re not. The U.S. Constitution gives Women only one right –the right to vote. It’s time to amend the Constitution to guarantee women all the rights men have… not just the one right to vote. Fellow students and others, it’s time for us to finally convince elected U.S. and State lawmakers to pass and ratify the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA). It’s so overdue. What can you do? Sign this petition if you support adding the ERA to the U.S. Constitution. Sign this petition if you want to help lawmakers Pass and Ratify the Equal Rights Amendment. Sign this petition to accept the torch from those who came before us, giants on whose shoulders we stand. Let’s take the Equal Rights Movement up to the next level – ratification. Let’s take the torch from those who lit it and those who carried it such as: Alice Paul and Crystal Eastman; U.S. Representative Bella Abzug of New York and feminists Betty Friedan and Gloria Steinem, Bobbie Francis; Eleanor Roosevelt; Lucy Stone, Senator Ted Kennedy, Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Senator Patsy Mink, Jeannette Rankin, Billie Jean King, Shirley Chisholm et al. It’s our turn now. Be among the next wave of Equal Rights Activists. Sign, then spread the word. Then ask your U.S. and State lawmakers where they stand on the ERA. Ask them to sign, too. Be one of the reinforcements. Help make women’s rights official and Constitutional.
