ACTION ALERT: Urge the House to Vote Yes for the ERA (H.J. Res. 17)
Now that 38 states have ratified the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA), it needs to finally be enshrined in the U.S. Constitution because it would guarantee equal legal rights regardless of sex – ending unjust legal distinctions between men and women in divorce, property, employment, and other matters. Every member of the House should vote for the bi-partisan legislation (H.J. Res. 17) sponsored by Rep. Jackie Speier (D-C.A.) with Rep. Tom Reed (R- N.Y.) that would remove the arbitrary deadline in the 1972 legislation.
