Dr. Stephen Krason, professor of political science and legal studies, discusses the revival of the Equal Rights Amendment.
Some readers may have noticed the campaign in some states to “ratify” a constitutional amendment proposal that people thought had died almost forty years ago. Remember the Equal Rights Amendment, which was a major feminist rallying point in the 1970s? Proposed by Congress in 1972, after the idea had been kicked around for fifty years, it quickly sailed through state legislatures and seemed destined for an easy ratification.
