Can someone explain, please, why the
Equal Rights Amendment has still not passed?
Here it is:
Title: A joint resolution proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the United States relative to equal rights for men and women.
Sponsor: Sen Kennedy, Edward M. [MA] (introduced 3/15/2005) Cosponsors (17)
Related Bills: H.J.RES.37
Latest Major Action: 3/15/2005 Referred to Senate committee. Status: Read twice and referred to the Committee on the Judiciary.
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.
That's it. Now, what's the problem?
