Hot Topics – The Equal Rights Amendment, Where Are We Now?

Register Today

The Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) was written by suffragist Alice Paul in 1923. When Congress passed the ERA, with bi-partisan support, in 1972, it put in its preamble a timeline for ratification, which expired before ¾ of the states ratified. Despite the fact that the ERA has now met the ratification requirements, it has not been added to the US Constitution because the Congressional timeline has passed. So what now?

Why is the Equal Rights Amendment important? What will it take to finally get the ERA ratified more than 100 years after it was first proposed?

Our speaker, Rebecca Goldman will give us the amendment background and history, why it is important for this amendment to pass and the time limit and Congressional joint resolution. Learn what Congress and the League are doing and how can we support these efforts.
