JOIN TO HELP PASS THE EQUAL RIGHTS AMENDMENT IN THE U.S. CONSTITUTION
The federal ERA was introduced in Congress in 1923 and has been introduced every year since. Women still do not have equality in the U.S. Constitution.
"Equality of Rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of sex."
The Equal Rights Amendment was written in 1923 by Alice Paul who said "I never doubted that equal rights was the right direction. Most reforms, most problems are complicated. But to me there is nothing complicated about ordinary equality."
Suffragist Alice Stokes Paul (1885-1977) Interview, February 1974
Alice Paul said women gaining the right to vote was only the first step in full equality.
EQUAL RIGHTS AMENDMENT
Join the campaign today to help pass the ERA in the U.S. Constitution!
VoteERA.org created, managed and passed an initiative to put women's equality in the Oregon Constitution in 2014! With endorsements from elected officials and statewide leaders and especially the voters around Oregon the ERA (Equal Rights Amendment) passed overwhelmingly in Oregon!
We are proud of our success as all voters should be. Since 2013 VoteERA.org has also been working on helping pass the federal ERA for the U.S. Constitution. For 95 years the ERA has been introduced in Congress, it passed once in 1972 but failed to ratify to the U.S. Constitution as it was three states shy of the required 38 states ratification. The ERA is only one of two constitutional amendments to have been assigned a deadline. The deadline passed on June 30, 1982. Currently there are bills in Congress to remove the deadline. Nonetheless, two states have passed the ERA even so, and we are ONE STATE AWAY FROM PASSING THE FEDERAL ERA! The assumption is that the ERA will land in the United States Supreme Court. We need your help. Join us.
