​ERA Minnesota (ERAMN) is proud to announce that the Equal Rights Amendment just moved closer to final passage after the Illinois Legislature ratified the measure, becoming the 37th state in the nation to do so.

Now only one final state is needed to reach the ¾ threshold for ratification into the U.S. Constitution. Most likely to succeed may be North Carolina whose legislature ends in June.

The ERA is a hundred-year battle similar to the struggle for the right of women to vote. It’s an issue of power and power doesn’t give itself up. But #MeToo and #TimesUp movements underscored that discrimination on the basis of sex will no longer be tolerated.

A major paradigm has shifted. Lawmakers take heed. Time for Minnesota to join with 24 other states in passing a state ERA into our state constitution.
