Legal Equality and Human Rights
Belmont-Paul Women's Equality National Monument, Washington DC
Celebrating Women's Equality Day 2018 with Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg
Among other topics, Justice Ginsburg discussed why she still supports the Equal Rights Amendment:
The Equal Rights Amendment is designed specifically to make women of equal citizenship stature in all aspects of human activity. Another reason why I am a proponent of the ERA: Every constitution in the world written since the year 1950 has a provision among human rights guarantees that men are women are persons of equal citizenship stature. Our Constitution should have explicitly [included] such a provision, just like freedom of speech [and] freedom of the press, a fundamental tenet of our society should be the equal citizenship stature of men and women, and that’s what the ERA would do. Now when I take out the Constitution and show it to my granddaughters, I can’t point to a provision that says explicitly men and women have equal rights and obligations under the law. So I would like to be able to take out my pocket Constitution and show my grandchildren.
