For Debate: Should the Equal Rights Amendment Be Revived?
Time & Location
About the Event
This year, Virginia became the 38th state to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment—which would constitutionalize gender equality—arguably giving the amendment the required number of states decades after its drafting. The ratification deadlines have lapsed, but should the amendment be revived? Jane Mansbridge, author of the award-winning "Why We Lost the ERA," Carol Robles-Román, former co-president and CEO of the ERA Coalition and Fund for Women’s Equality, and Inez Feltscher Stepman of the Independent Women’s Forum join moderator Jeffrey Rosen, president and CEO of the National Constitution Center, to discuss.
