Women in the U.S. don’t have equal rights.
We’ll change that.

Only one more state is needed to pass the Equal Rights Amendment.
Let's finish the job. Find out if your state is still unratified.

Can you answer this critical question?
Do my state candidates in the upcoming midterm elections support the ERA?


The Equal Means Equal Equality Pledge for the ERA will provide Americans with crucial information they need to know before they vote on November 6th.

We cannot afford to wait any longer.  These elections could not be more important; every woman in this country needs to know EXACTLY where their candidate stands on full legal equality for all Americans.

We must ensure that the Equality Pledge is officially signed or rejected by each candidate in every unratified state.  In order to do that, we must call every office, speak to every chief of staff, and educate every candidate.  And we are willing to do that.  We are doing that.  Let’s do it together!

If you live in one of the unratified states we need your help now.

Sign up to help follow-up on the Equality Pledge in your state.

If you live in a ratified state, you can still help! Fill out the volunteer form and someone will be in touch to identify candidates for you to follow up with.

We need the U.S. Constitution to recognize the truth that
all people are created equal.

A little herstory

In 1776, our nation declared that all men are created equal and are endowed with inalienable rights, leaving women to fight for equal treatment under the law. This has been at the foundation of over 240 years of discriminatory attitudes and treatment of half the country’s population.

It’s time the Constitution acknowledged women’s rights as citizens of this country. The Equal Rights Amendment will set a precedent that guarantees equality, justice, and respect for all people under the law. Only when Equal Means Equal can we all meet our true potential.
