The Equal Rights Amendment. September 20, 2006
The Equal Rights Amendment was introduced in 1923. Eighty two years later it is still not part of the Constitution of the United States. Why? Section 1. Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of sex. Section 2. The Congress shall have the power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article. Section 3. This amendment shall take effect two years after the date of ratification.
