Equal Rights Amendment
“Equal rights, under the law, shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of sex.”
Our League Action Team is committed to passing ERA–and putting women in the U. S. Constitution for the first time in history.
Just two states are needed to get to the 38 required for passage of a Constitutional amendment. North Carolina should certainly be one of them!
FOR LATEST ON THE ERA `SILENT SENTINEL’ ACROSS FROM THE WHITE HOUSE, TUNE IN TO THE BLOG! FOR TEN WEEKS, SUPPORTERS ARE TAKING SHIFTS TO COMMEMORATE THE `SILENT SENTINEL VIGIL’ OF A CENTURY AGO WHEN WOMEN WERE BEATEN, JAILED AND HECKLED FOR INSISTING ON THE RIGHT TO VOTE.
In addition to our local efforts (see local Resolutions below), LWV of Dare County is working with sister Leagues across the state and ERA-NC Alliance to muster grassroots support as well as political leverage to get ERA passed. Get involved! Join the League’s ERA committee.
