What is the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA)? 

The ERA is an amendment to the United States Constitution that would guarantee equal rights to all Americans, regardless of sex. The ERA would provide a fundamental and universal legal remedy against discrimination for both women and men. Originally written by suffragist Alice Paul in 1923, only one more state is needed to ratify this critically needed amendment to guarantee equal rights.

What can you do to fuel the fight for the ERA? 

  • Spread the word about the ERA to friends and colleagues through conversation and social media.
  • Educate yourself at EqualMeansEqual.org and join Equal Means ERA on Facebook. 
  • Tell your legislators that you support the ERA and you want them to as well. 
  • Help candidates who support the ERA.
