The Equal Rights Amendment
Section1.Â Â Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of sex.
Section 2.Â The Congress shall have the power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article.
Section 3.Â This amendment shall take effect two years after the date of ratification.
The E.R.A. is a U.S. Constitutional Amendment that would empower all women and provide for gender equality.Â The E.R.A. is the unfinished business of the Civil Rights Movement.Â Letâ€™s Change the World!
