Ratify the Equal Rights Amendment!
The ERA passed the Illinois Senate on April 11, 2018 by 43 to 12!!
Two more states need to ratify the ERA for it to become law. Illinois is one of them.
The Equal Rights Amendment, guaranteeing equality of rights under the law regardless of an individual’s sex, was passed by Congress in 1972 but has yet to be ratified by three-quarters of the states. Just two more states need to ratify the ERA for it to be added to the Constitution.
The League of Women Voters supports the Equal Rights Amendment. But it’s the support of individuals that will push legislators to act. Let your voice be heard for Illinois to ratify the ERA.
Your Wilmette League has gathered a full range of resources and activities that will help you get started.
Time is running out for Illinois to ratify the ERA this year. Now we need it to be brought to the Illinois House! And for it to pass!
