League of Women Voters of the Ann Arbor Area

The Equal Rights Amendment

Equality of Rights under the Law Shall Not be Denied or Abridged by the United States or by any State on Account of Sex.


As we plan to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment’s passage, we’ll look at another constitutional amendment first introduced into in 1921: The Equal Rights Amendment. Passed in Congress in 1972, it fell several states short of approval by ratification deadline.  We’ll look at its beginnings, its history, the arguments pro and con, and the struggle to ratify it.  Last week, the Virginia Legislative Committee agreed to take a resolution supporting the amendment to the full senate.  If Virginia ratifies it, what happens next?   After 47 years, is the amendment still relevant?  How does this fit the League’s “Creating a More Perfect Democracy” position?
