THE ERA CAMPAIGN

“Every Constitution written since the end of World War II includes a provision that men and women are citizens of equal stature. Ours does not. Women didn’t get to vote until 1920”

-U.S Supreme Court Justice,  Ruth Bader Ginsburg

ERA HISTORY

Alice Paul, founder of the Equal Rights Amendment, has been trying to pass the ERA since 1923, guaranteeing equal rights for women and men on all levels. After 50 years of struggle, it was defeated under Ronald Regan in 1982.

An Equal Rights Amendment would guarantee men and women would finally be recognized as equals in the framework of the Constitution under the Federal Protection of the United States. Passing the ERA would legally close the pay gap between genders, and allow women to finally enjoy all the same freedoms as men.

The United States is only one of seven countries in the world (along with Iran, Somalia, Sudan, South Sudan, Palau, and Tonga) that have not ratified the UN Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination of Women (CEDAW).

Known as the International bill of rights for women, CEDAW has been signed and ratified by 187 countries… virtually every country in the world, except the United States of America. This has greatly hindered getting the ERA passed.
