“Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of sex.” - Full text of the Equal Rights Amendment, passed by Congress but not yet ratified.
Background and Recent Activity
94% of adults believe in equal rights. 80% of Americans think the Constitution guarantees them. It does not. While the 19th Amendment guarantees the vote, it does not give women “equal justice under law.” The 24 words of the ERA are what’s required to guarantee the rights of women. Until it is passed, women are not guaranteed the same rights as men under the law.
