Equal Future

January 27, 2020

Just one state needed to ratify the ERA as of 2019.  Virginia became the 38th state to ratify the ERA on January 27, 2020!


94% of Americans surveyed support the ERA. Click to see our Polling.


Latinas face the largest wage gap at $0.53 on the dollar. Women on average make $0.79 to a white man’s dollar.

Every 92 seconds, an American is sexually assaulted. The ERA would give these survivors rights.

The House voted to remove the time limit on February 13, 2020…The Senate is next.

Welcome to an Equal Future.


Our goal is to amend the Constitution to ensure that one cannot be discriminated against because of one’s sex. The ERA Coalition is comprised of some 200 national and local partner and supporter organizations across the country representing millions of advocates working for the equality of all. We strategize with states seeking ratification. We work with legislators on the amendment and other ERA bills. We’ve provided groundbreaking research. Our team of legal scholars has examined the next steps to a fully realized Equal Rights Amendment.

There has been extraordinary progress in the movement toward full equality. While Alice Paul began it all in 1923, and Congress passed the ERA in 1972, by 1982 only 35 states had ratified, three shy of the necessary 38. But in 2017 Nevada ratified the ERA; the first state in 40 years to do so; Illinois ratified in 2018. And Virginia ratified it on January 27th, 2020, and on February 13th, 2020 the House of Representatives voted to dissolve the time limit written in the amendment’s introduction. While it wasn’t taken up in the Senate last year, we’re hopeful it will pass both houses of Congress this year, since its 2021 bipartisan and bicameral introduction!

Statement on the verdict on the trial of Derek Chauvin

The ERA Coalition/Fund for Women’s Equality, standing for justice and equality for all, supports the outcome of the trial of Derek Chauvin in the murder of George Floyd.

Though this guilty verdict will not bring back Mr. Floyd, we pray the jury’s decision brings some measure of closure and peace. Our hearts go out to Mr. Floyd’s friends, his family, and his community. We also grieve for the many other lives taken by police violence…
