ILLINOIS STATE SENATE DISTRICT 7: Steans: With ratification by 38 states, it’s time for the Equal Rights Amendment


By Press release submission | Jan 21, 2020


Illinois State Senate District 7 issued the following announcement on Jan. 15.

State Senator Heather Steans issued the following statement on news that Virginia became the 38th state to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment:

“Virginia’s historic action today, a century after the ERA was introduced and women gained the vote, should tell us that the time is long overdue for this to become the law,” Steans said. “The idea that our government should not have the power to discriminate on the basis of sex should not be controversial. Because of the time that has passed, there remains work to be done, but the American people have spoken loud and clear: It’s time for 28th Amendment.”
