ABOUT: ERA Coalition

https://www.facebook.com/eracoalition

The Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) was passed by Congress in 1972, and sent to the states for ratification. It was initially given a time limit of 7 years to ratify, later extended to 10 years. During this time 35 states ratified, just three states short of the 38 needed for the amendment to be added to the Constitution.

The ERA is introduced in Congress in each Congressional Session. There are currently two sets of bills introduced to secure constitutional equality. A fresh start of the ERA with new wording, as well as a resolution to remove the time line that halted the progress of the first campaign.

Society has changed in the past forty years and many concerns that hindered ratification are now obsolete, while the need for an effective and permanent sex equality guarantee remains. We bring the experience and wisdom of the veteran activists together with the energy and social media skills of a new generation to build a successful coalition effort for passage and ratification of the ERA
