Here it is— 2018 and the ERA still hasn’t been ratified. In 2023, U.S. women will have been struggling for equal rights under the U.S. Constitution for 100 years. Inez Milholland gave her life for the Equal Rights Amendment. When she died, the ERA hadn’t yet been drafted and filed. However, American women had already realized that a federal amendment would be necessary—what eventually became the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
More commentary, by both men and women, is appearing to say that equal rights under the U.S. Constitution is long over due. The United States is eager to point out lags in cultural and social awareness in the rest of the world.
Those of us supporting more awareness of Inez Milholland agree.
What does the ERA provide for? Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the Unites States or by any state on account of sex.
The Equal Rights Amendment has already been ratified by 36 of 38 states. Find out more.
