Maybe you think women already have equal rights. What rights are missing? What can't a woman do in the US? We're much better off than women in other countries that have equality in the Constitution.
Why do we need the ERA?
I read @JessicaNeuwirth's book "Equal Means Equal."
We've fought back. We've passed laws that snip away at the leaves and vines. It's not enough. To truly choke these weeds out, we need to cut it from its roots.
Over 70% of Americans believe equal rights are already guaranteed to women in the Constitution, the root of our law. They are shocked to learn they aren't.
It must be fixed. #ERANow
We have the tools to remove the chokehold of this poisonous weed, if we can first create the tool to uproot it. The ERA gives us that tool.
And recognize there's an easy fix. Show up with the majority and demand the ERA be the law of the land.
It's simply the right thing to do.
If racism offends you and sexism doesn't - you got a problem.
