ERA Coalition Statement on House and Senate Resolutions to Remove Time Limit for Equal Rights Amendment

“Advocates for sex equality began the fight to add the Equal Rights Amendment to the Constitution 100 years ago. We’ve watched opponents of equality for women and LGBTQ+ persons take unprecedented steps to roll back our rights, showing just how fiercely urgent our fight is today as it was a century ago. There is no time limit on equality, and we urge the House of Representatives and the Senate to act swiftly.”

ERA Coalition Statement Marking the One-Year Anniversary of Equal Rights Amendment Effective Date

One year ago today, the Equal Rights Amendment should have been published as the 28th Amendment after meeting all requirements laid out in the U.S. Constitution. The ERA is already valid, despite not being published by the U.S. Archivist, and we will continue pursuing all avenues to push for full recognition.
