Women’s Rights Activists Seek Equal Rights Under the Law

By InHerSight

Women's rights advocates came together in Washington on Tuesday to campaign for a proposed U.S. constitutional amendment for equal rights. Actresses Patricia Arquette and Alyssa Milano, known for their passion for women’s rights, have joined efforts with activists to fight for ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment, a measure that would ensure equal treatment of men and women under state and federal law.

The amendment has been the subject of debate for decades now—Congress approved the ERA 1972, but only 37 states have ratified it, one state short of official Amendment ratification. With the #MeToo movement and the Year of the Woman in full swing, hopefully some change will be incited. "We have waited too long. We cannot wait another century, another decade, another year, or another month. We need constitutional protection for women," said Arquette.
