Pass Equal Rights Amendment in the USA
Petition Background (Preamble):
Arguments for why not to pass this amendment go as silly as to say that it will cause the elimination of men's and women's sex-segregated bathrooms. Even if that were true, who would care? It's just a bathroom - why does everybody have to attach a sexual meaning to everything? I really could care less who I am doing my business next to. This legislation needs to get passed and it needs to get passed now.
Those who say a simple amendment cannot change anything are wrong. The 13th, 14th, and 15th amendments to the Consititution form the basis from which the races are guaranteed equality today. We can change society.
Section 1. Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of sex.
Section 2. The Congress shall have the power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article.
Section 3. This amendment shall take effect two years after the date of ratification.
