26. Thank you, sheshe2.

Let us not forget our fore-mothers!

December 10, 1923
The Equal Rights Amendment, written by Alice Paul, is introduced in Congress

“We shall not be safe until the principle of equal rights is written into the framework of our government.”
– Alice Paul
If the states ratify it, the Equal Rights Amendment introduced today in Congress would require government to treat men and women with exact equality.

Winning the vote three years ago was a big step. Yet women are still not full citizens. Many states still prohibit women from serving on juries, and differences continue in married women’s rights to control property and make contracts.

Alice Paul, who wrote the ERA and helped found the National Women’s Party which backs it, says the only remedy is to amend the Constitution again.
