Actually the ERA is great for men's rights (particularly father's rights) as well as woman's rights.
Section 1. Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.
Section 2. The Congress shall have the power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article.
Section 3. This amendment shall take effect two years after the date of ratification.
This protects men as much as it protects women.
It means that custody decisions will be made without being influenced by gender stereotypes. Currently in some states, custody is award to the mother 90% of the time. Under the ERA this would be equal.
It also means that women will be part of any military draft.
And maternity leave will now officially be parental leave and will be open for fathers.
I strongly support the ERA, and I am suppose to be a a hateful misogynist.
