Equal Rights Amendment

The League of Women Voters US supported the passing of the Equal Rights Amendment legislation in 1972 and continues to support the ongoing ratification phase. This ratification requires 38 states to approve an amendment before it is sent on for Congressional approval for addition to the Constitution.  Currently we are one state short.  The LWVHC ERA Committee continues to research the issues, educate the public on the need for the amendment, and advocate for North Carolina to ratify the ERA in the General Assembly in 2019. For further information or to join this committee or be part of the ERA NC Alliance Action Team in Henderson County, please contact the ERA Team chair by email or 828-606-5201. (LWVHC is one of 19 ground in the ERA NC Alliance.)
