Tell Congress That Equality Belongs in the Constitution

A cartoon graphic with a scale depicting equal rights for different kinds of peopleMore than 100 years after some women gained the right to vote, people in the United States are still not constitutionally guaranteed equality on the basis of sex. The Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) will update the US Constitution to protect the equality of rights under the law regardless of sex. The ERA has met all ratification requirements, and now we are urging Congress to act to ensure that the ERA is published.

Joint resolutions have been introduced in both chambers of Congress that will both affirm that the ERA is a valid part of the Constitution and address the question of a ratification time limit.

Inequality hurts everyone. Click to urge Congress to act now to assert that the ERA is part of the Constitution!
