Analysis of the Equal Rights Amendment
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.
