Virtual Branch

Join Ranger Susan Philpott of the Belmont-Paul Women's Equality National Monument to explore the evolution of the ERA--and the concept of equality--over the past century.

Women won an important victory with the ratification of the 19th Amendment in 1920. But the vote wasn't the end; it was just the beginning of the ongoing struggle for equality. Within a few years, Alice Paul and the National Woman's Party set out to amend the U.S. Constitution again, this time to ensure full equality for women. The Equal Rights Amendment, introduced into Congress for the first time in 1923, 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." Join Ranger Susan Philpott of the Belmont-Paul Women's Equality National Monument to explore the evolution of the ERA--and the concept of equality--over the past century.
