How is it even possible for women today to tolerate second-class citizenship? We are not mentioned in the Constitution. Yes, we’ve come from being the ‘property’ of husbands to being CEOs of major companies. But we’re still not in the Constitution. We’re still not given legal rights equal to those of men. This is unfair, foolish and wrong. How can any thinking American do anything short of insisting we pass the Equal Rights Amendment.
