Women’s Equality Day: Time for Constitutional Guarantee of Women’s Rights

Women’s Equality Day: Time for Constitutional Guarantee of Women’s Rights.

90 years ago today, August 26, women were finally granted the right to vote with the signing of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States.  But in other matters, women still are not protected by the Constitutions. Terry O’Neill, President of NOW, said, “The fact is, sex discrimination against women is not unconstitutional, and statues prohibiting it have no constitutional foundation. It is time to write women into the Constitution by ratifying the Equal Rights Amendment.”

It is time for a rekindling as passage of the Equal Rights Amendment. Get involved. Read the press release from NOW. Activate your campus, town, or organization.  We came so close last time.
