US House Passes HJ Res 17!  

Washington, D.C.: Today the US House passed a joint resolution to remove the arbitrary and capricious time limit on the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) with a bipartisan vote of 222-204.

“This is a historic moment for our country,” said Betty Folliard, President Emeritus of ERA Minnesota.  “Today’s US House ERA vote signals an inflection point, recognizing that women were intentionally left out of the Constitution from its inception and righting that egregious wrong.”

“This is one giant step for womankind in our quest to secure the same legal rights as a class as men, as a class, enjoy.” said ERA Minnesota President Heather Allison.  “The ERA will protect all of us equally under the law against discrimination on the basis of sex. And all means all.”

Next steps for this resolution is to go to the US Senate for adoption where it has been given a priority number of SJ Res 1.
