Equal Rights Amendment Website


The Equal Rights Amendment is a proposed amendment to the United States Constitution designed to guarantee equal legal rights for all American citizens regardless of sex.

It seeks to end the legal distinctions between men and women in terms of divorce, property, employment, and other matters.
The Equal Rights Amendment website is a project of the Alice Paul Institute (API) in Mt. Laurel, New Jersey. The site was first established in 1999, and authored largely by Roberta W. Francis, API's ERA Education Consultant and Founding Chair of the National Council of Women's Organizations' ERA Task Force upon which she served from 1999 to 2015. The site was gifted to the Alice Paul Institute in 2018 and was redesigned by Kathryn Elizabeth Colohan, Jillian Specter Williams, and Krista Joy Niles.
