New Year, New Constitution
"Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of sex."
People are saying...
"Equality is not a zero sum game. The bigger the tent, the more we, together, can achieve. The Equal Rights Amendment reflects our advancement as a society from one that viewed women as a man's property to one that appreciates women as equal citizens. In 2021, the concept of sex equality should not be controversial. Those making it controversial enact a profound insult on our Nation and they undermine the Founders' effort to create a more perfect Union." - Michelle Kallen, Virginia Solicitor General
"It's time we sally forth and act like we changed the U.S. Constitution—because we did! This pocket Constitution is the roadmap for the future. Give it out like you are a missionary for equality!" - Kate Kelly, Author of Ordinary Equality
"You probably haven’t thought about your pocket Constitution since law school, but this new version is way better than that old one — that’s because this one contains a 28th Amendment, the Equal Rights Amendment." - Kathryn Rubino, Above the Law
The 28th Amendment was fully ratified on January 27, 2020 (yay Nevada, Illinois, and Virginia). As the result of much work by many women, an updated copy of our United States Constitution is now available.
Publishing this pocket Constitution is a joint project of VoteEqualityUS and ERA Project at Columbia Law School.
