The Equal Rights Amendment: Achieving Constitutional Equality for All

Led by Chairwoman Carolyn Maloney (D-NY), this was the first full House Committee hearing on the ERA since the 1970s. The ERA Coalition hosted a press conference in advance of the event, featuring all 6 of the Chairwoman’s witnesses, as well as several members of Congress and Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).

ERA Coalition/FFWE Applaud House Oversight Committee, Chairwoman Maloney Announcement on Equal Rights Amendment Hearing

“We applaud Chairwoman Maloney’s tireless commitment to adding the Equal Rights Amendment and using her platform to draw attention to the urgency of writing equal rights into the very framework of our government. As politicians ramp up efforts to roll back women’s rights across the country, there’s never been a more crucial time to put people of all genders on equal footing in our nation’s legal system. The House of Representatives has passed the time limit removal twice already. It’s long past time for the Senate to follow suit and do the same. There is no time limit on equality.”
