Equal Rights Amendment Policy - Political Parties and Stances

Unlike nearly all other political issues, both sides of the aisle- Republicans and Democrats- have made it clear that they want equal rights for both men and women. Nearly all Republicans and Democrats agree that equal rights for men and women are paramount, and should be resolved soon. A large majority, including 62% of non-feminist Republicans and even more Democrats, favor adding the Equal Rights Amendment to the Constitution so as to secure these rights for women. The Equal Rights Amendment is one that simply states that “Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.” Although an overwhelming majority of Americans support the addition of the Equal Rights Amendment, “about eight-in-ten U.S. adults (78%)”, it still has its enemies. Interest in the inclusion of the Equal Rights Amendment was recently sparked once more, with the House’s almost unanimous passage of H.J Res. 17, which extends the time for the Equal Right Amendment’s ratification indefinitely. So, support for the Equal Rights Amendment, and equal rights for both men and women, is strongly supported by Democrats and Republicans alike.
