The ERA claims to be a simple amendment that gives equal rights to women. In reality, the ERA will actually harm women, their families, and our society. The major problem with the ERA is its wording.

In essence, women are not being guaranteed equal rights; rather gender is being removed as a legal characteristic on which to base distinctions.
