Alyssa Milano speaks at the ERA Congressional Meeting

WHY DO YOU NEED THE EQUAL RIGHTS AMENDMENT?

“The #MeToo movement was such a powerful phenomenon because for far too long, women have not felt heard. It’s hard to empower women when they are not recognized as part of our Constitution. Now is the time for that to change and for the ERA to become part of the law for our nation,” Milano, 45, said in a statement.

Proponents of the ERA say that it’s necessary in order to officially guarantee equal rights for all Americans, regardless of gender.

Congress approved the amendment in 1972, but only 35 states — three short of the number required to add it to the Constitution — ratified it ahead of the deadline.

Congress’s deadline to secure the ERA expired in 1982.

But Illinois ratified the amendment last month, and proponents argue that the 27th Amendment's 202 years between submission and ratification is evidence that the ERA can still be ratified.
