Statements on the Equal Rights Amendment bill

By David Wildstein, February 13 2020 11:32 am

REP. MIKIE SHERRILL (D-MONTCLAIR)

“New Jersey’s Alice Paul authored the Equal Rights Amendment, and I’m proud to cast my vote today to help advance the work she started one hundred years ago. It is time to advance the Equal Rights Amendment and ensure that women have protection under the Constitution to combat pay discrimination, pregnancy discrimination, and sexual and domestic violence.”

DEMOCRATIC CONGRESSIONAL CANDIDATE BRIGID CALLAHAN HARRISON (NJ-2)

“The House of Representatives took a historic step forward today in addressing women’s inequality.  This was a needed and important step which has been a long time coming.  While the struggle for equal rights continues for women throughout the country, passage of this important legislation continues the progress that has been made throughout the years.  As we have seen throughout history, change can take place both instantly and incrementally, and while this fight has taken decades, we should and will never give up ensuring equal rights for all.

REP. TOM MALINOWSKI (D-RINGOES)

“Today the ERA is one step closer to ratification. The Constitution will not be a complete expression of our country’s highest values until the rights and equality of women are enshrined within it.”
