Did you know there is not an Amendment to either the Minnesota or the U.S. Constitution that states specifically that women and men have equal protection under the law?
If you didn't, you're not alone -- 76% of the population thinks we already have an Equal Rights Amendment and 94% of the country believes we should!
We at ERA Minnesota are working to make equal rights for all a reality.
Minnesota has been active in trying to get the ERA passed since the 1970's. Our state was the 26th state to ratify the federal amendment in 1973. What many people don't realize is that not enough states nationwide ratified, so the federal amendment effort died on June 14, 1982.
In Minnesota we are organizing, educating and advocating for:
"Equality under the law shall not be abridged or denied on account of gender."
Language of the proposed Minnesota State ERA. Bills now in the MN House (HF13) and MN Senate (SF200)
