Schumer seeks to revive Equal Rights Amendment

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer is pushing for a vote this week on a resolution that aims to add the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) to the U.S. Constitution, more than a century after its initial introduction. Schumer emphasized the urgency of the ERA given recent events, such as the Supreme Court’s Dobbs decision, which could have implications for women’s reproductive rights.

History of the ERA

The ERA was first introduced in Congress 100 years ago and passed both the House and Senate in 1972, but it fell short of the required 38 state ratifications by the 7-year deadline set by Congress. However, three more states ratified the ERA in recent years, bringing the total to 38.

A bipartisan resolution

Senators Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) and Ben Cardin (D-Md.) are co-sponsoring a bipartisan resolution to remove the original bill’s “arbitrary deadline” for ratification, which could pave the way for the ERA’s addition to the Constitution. Critics of the ERA argue that it is unnecessary given existing protections, such as the 14th Amendment and other targeted laws.

Uphill battle in the Senate

The resolution still faces significant opposition in the Senate, where it would need support from several more Republicans to pass. Conservatives have generally been opposed to its passage. The ERA could enshrine equal rights on the basis of sex in the U.S. Constitution, but its passage is far from guaranteed.

Schumer defends delayed reaction to China’s spy flights

Separately, Sen. Chuck Schumer defended the delayed U.S. reaction to China’s spy flights, which were shot down over the Atlantic Ocean. He stated that the U.S. had gathered “enormous intelligence” before taking action. No further details were given.


  1. they don’t have the authority to change the constitution. It can only be changed by a convention of the states. If you don’t know the constitution then I suggest that you read it and make the congress of the united states honor their pledge to up hold it.

    1. Actually congress can change the Constitution, it is called an amendment. The headline is very misleading, he doesn’t want to change the Constitution, he wants to change the deadline for the states to ratify the ERA amendment. I don’t think they can go back in time and change the deadline as it is written in the bill.

  2. It takes two-thirds of both houses to amend the Constitution, and it should require two-thirds to remove the 1978 deadline; which will never happen.

  3. Chuckie and his DemoCreep pals would abolish the US Constitution as a ‘useless, worn-out old document’ if they could. Then they would have a clear runway to dominate and control the rest of us forever.

  4. This is laughable, Chucky Schumer whose Democrat Party is going all out to destroy women with their rabid support of self made freaks.

  5. Schumer does not have the power or influence to change the Constitution. He is one of the many Communist hacks sitting in our Government.

  6. Shumer you keep your grubby hands off the constitution, you will never match the honor and sacred words it stands for LEAVE IT ALONE!

  7. Beware America, Chucky Schumer + Granny Pelosi & Crooked Hillary + Hussein are the Swamp Deep state Leader, let’s go Brandon is just their Puppet
