Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) – The Equal Rights Amendment to the Constitution (ERA) sought to guarantee gender equality through words. Phyllis Schlafly led other women against ERA. Schlafly said ERA advocates were, “bitter women seeking a constitutional cure for their personal problems.” She used the following arguments against the ERA amendment: It would deprive a woman’s right to be a wife. It would require women to serve in combat. It would legalize homosexual marriage. 38 state legislatures adopted the amendment, 41 were necessary, and the ERA ended.
