The Equal Rights Amendment was written by Alice Paul in 1921 and introduced into the U.S. Congress for the first time in 1923. In 1972, it passed both houses of Congress, but failed to gain ratification before its June 30, 1982 deadline
Women in America don't realize that they make between 33% and 41% LESS than men in 99% of all occupations! How is that possible? W/out the Equal Rights Amendment there is no federal enforcement of equity for women in wages, pension, social security.
