  •  When did America start backpeddling on rights? (none)
    Why hasn't this country codified Equal Rights for Women?  Why have women stopped making a stink about this?  

    The effing ERA is introduced every year and every year is held up in committee.  In 1983, it actually went to the floor of the house, but only 30% of the Republicans voted YES and 85% of the Democrats voted YES.

    People might say it doesn't make a difference to the woman of today, but it does.  If 70% of Republican politicians are against it, that says the leadership of this country does not think that women are smart enough or able enough to have equal value in society.

    Yes, the majority of women vote democratic, but the other 47% are voting for subjugation.  What gives?
