Did you know that the Equal Rights Amendment isn't ratified? This is why women don't have equal pay as men in the workforce. This is also why women aren't fully protected against sexual assault,domestic violence, and paid leave while pregnant. Without the ERA, the Constitution does not explicitly guarantee that the rights it protects are held equally by all citizens without regard to sex. The first — and still the only — right specifically affirmed as equal for women and men is the right to vote. By passing the ERA it would provide a strong legal defense against a rollback of the significant advances in women's rights. In order to be added to the Constitution, it needed approval by legislatures in three-fourths (38) of the 50 states. Virginia is one of the states that has NOT agreed to ratify it yet. Sign this petition to get the Equal Rights Amendment ratified today! It is our voices that matter so stand up and lets make a difference,lets make history!
