The Equal Rights Amendment
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.
Section 3. This amendment shall take effect two years after the date of ratification.
There has been one version or another of the ERA presented to the congress from 1923 to 1972. Many times it wasn't even considered by congress.
When it was it didn't passed and then finally in 1972 it passed congress but not enough states signed onto it.
Instead we've had a slew of laws protecting women from everything from discrimination in the workplace to abuse as well as the problematic welfare
system to coddle the women. And all these special perks that have been given to women has causes a great deal of resentment within our society not to
mention our economy..
Women were some of the strongest supporters when it came to freeing the slaves. They worked to give the former male slaves the right to vote and only
after sought that vote themselves. Were are our constitutional rights? They have consistently refused to grant them to us for some reason?? When
the wars came it was women who left their homes and went to work keeping the factories turning out the weapons of war. We have proven that we can do
it when push comes to shove!
Women contributed on the battlefields during the world wars.
So why instead of granting us our constitutional rights were we given a ton of special treatments and perks designed to keep us in our state of
dependency when it has cost us so much more than if they had just passed the amendment and gave us our equality?
dependency=servitude so in reality they are denying us our freedom. and a pampered slave is still just a slave!
And we've recently watched another entity step in front of us in the line to equality---the corporate personhood!!
who by constitutional rights can now preserve religious integrity!
Since the corps can now have the same rights as granted to men by the constitution and are free to practice that religion within the basic policies of
the business. I have to wonder...
If the corp decides that they don't want to hire women because of their beliefs just how would that turn out??
would the constitutional rights of that corp trump a law that says makes discrimination against women illegal??
It's time to bring the ERA back into the picture I think!
