Last week, actress Alyssa Milano tweeted that the United States Constitution does not protect women. My question: how does it not?
"The US Constitution does not have protections for women. That’s why we are fighting so hard to get the Equal Rights Amendment passed," she wrote, and encouraged followers to "Join the fight" with the ERA Coalition.

The coalition declares on their website that they fight for 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 100 national and local organizations across the country working for the equality of girls and women, boys and men. 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 the House of Representatives dissolved the time limit written in the amendment’s introduction. It’s now on to the Senate!
The Constitution protects all Americans, regardless of gender, age, or race. As long as you are an American, you have Constitutional rights.
