Every year since 1923, a version of the Equal Rights Amendment has been introduced in Congress. In 1972, it was passed by Congress, but ultimately fell three states short of the 38 state ratification requirement, when the time period set for ratification expired in 1982.
The current version of the amendment sponsored by Congresswoman Carol Moloney reads:
”SECTION 1. Women shall have equal rights in the 11 United States and every place subject to its jurisdiction. 12 Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or 13 abridged by the United States or by any State on account 14 of sex.
Write a 200 to 500 word explanation of why you support or oppose adding the proposed Equal Rights Amendment to the Constitution. Make sure that you include some discussion of 14th Amendment levels of scrutiny in your explanation.
