Tell Congress That Equality Belongs in the Constitution
More 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. Urge Congress to act now to assert that the ERA is part of the Constitution!

I urge you to help finish the fight for equality by supporting S.J. Res. 4 on the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA), led by Senators Cardin and Murkowski. This resolution will affirm that the ERA is a valid part of the US Constitution and address the question of a ratification time limit.
The ERA will constitutionally protect the equality of rights under the law regardless of sex. It is necessary to uphold the rights of more than half of the nation's population.
More than 50 years ago, the ERA was passed through Congress with well over the required 2/3 majority vote and was sent to the states. In 2020, Virginia became the 38th and final state needed to meet the 3/4 state ratification requirement.
The best way to ensure that the will and ratification rights of the states are respected is by removing any doubt about the validity of the ERA to support its immediate publication.
The fight for the ERA is nearly 100 years old, and support for it across the country is stronger than ever. If you believe in equality for all regardless of sex, I urge you to support S.J. Res. 4 and critically affirm the enshrinement of sex equity into the Constitution once and for all.
