assorted flag lot

In the article, “A Century-Long Battle Over The Equal Rights Amendment” (BTW, 2021) I learned that the 1964 Civil Rights Act but as stated in the article not all their rights were guaranteed. We also discover that in 1923 the Equal Rights Amendment otherwise known as (ERA). Additionally we discover that it was made to ensure equal rights for both men and women which was passed in 1972. However, the Anti-ERA organizers were very against it which caused ERA to not be approved of as it did not meet the requirements by the deadline that was given by Congress. 

How do you feel about women fighting for their rights?

I am delighted to see that people were able to stand with one another in order to protest which did gain them more time. However, unfortunately it failed to meet the requirements that were needed in order for it to be ratified. I was frustrated that they only needed 3 more states to approve of the amendment. I was also surprised to see what the Anti-ERA organizers were worried about when they expressed their concerns over it.

Dear Linette:
I am stunned by your post, “Women’s right,” because as a woman I do agree we should have equal rights as men. This shouldn’t have to be a situation where we have to fight when it isn’t fair to begin with. 
One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “However, the Anti-ERA organizers were very against it which caused ERA to not be approved of as it did not meet the requirements by the deadline that was given by Congress.” I think this is hectic because why wouldn’t women rights be approved? What exactly is the problem here? It’s simply not right. 
Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because I am intrigued by your future discussions and opinions. I will be looking forward to your next post.

Dear Linette,

I am confused because that women rights were so hard to get and still get unfair treatment to this day. I don’t really understand why women still don’t equal pay in some places. 

One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is,” However, the Anti-ERA organizers were very against it which caused ERA to not be approved of as it did not meet the requirements by the deadline that was given by Congress.” I think this is sad because it makes no sense to not give women rights.

Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I was interested in the post you wrote. I would like to see your future posts.

Dear Linette,

I am intrigued with what you wrote. I didn’t know that the government didn’t guaranteed their right after all their struggles and hard work. I’m still jaw-dropping that many didn’t want ERA to pass. How can humans be so cruel to other humans?

One phrase that out-stained the others is “I was frustrated that they only needed 3 more states to approve of the amendment.” I feel like if they were to retry to pass this amendment it will pass in this century. Because its not only women, or color people’s rights it’s everyone’s equal right. And since we are in a more progressed voter generation it will easily pass.

Thank you for your research and opinion. I look forward to what you state in regards to right.

Dear Linette,

I am in awe with what you wrote. I believe that everyone should have equal rights as this is supposed to be a free country. It is shocking to see that many people don’t want that and that organizations like the Anti-ERA are responsible for this battle of equality.

What stands out for me with what you wrote is that there was a supposed lack of requirements needed to ratify the amendment. I feel like this has importance as other laws which really aren’t that much needed get ratified quickly while the ones that can have a greater impact are put aside.

Thank you for your writing. I look forward to what more you have to say regarding this topic.

Dear Linette

I am impressed with your poem “Women’s Rights” because Man and women’s rights both matter no matter what because everyone should be getting treated equally. They also wouldn’t try to pass the rights because how the rights did not meet the requirements.

One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is “Additionally we discovered that it was made to ensure equal rights for both men and women which passed in 1972”. I think this is very important because not just women are important to this world. Men can also go threw the same thing as women can and just because a lot of people think men can’t get rapped or other things happen to them it doesn’t mean they shouldn’t get treated differently. 

Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because not a lot of people talk about how men and women have the same right not just because we live in the same world but because both genders can go threw the same things. A lot of people don’t know what they are going threw just because of different genders and because of any amendments not getting passed.

Dear Linette,
I am interested with your post,”Women’s Rights because i also agree all women should have equal rights just as men. I think we shoudl also have those rights where we are free on doing anything we desire just like them.

One sentence that you wrote that stood out to me was, “I am delighted to see that people were able to stand with one another in order to protest which did gain them more time”I think this is intersting because it shows how these women fought for their rights and had protests to support them.

Thanks for your writing. I look forward in seeing what you write next,because i think that it is interesting in the way you support your argument.

Dear Linette:
I am infuriated by the fact that the 1964 Civil Rights Act states that not all their rights were guaranteed because as humans we all deserve basic equal treatment.

One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “Currently, there are multiple paths forward to achieve amendment status. The first path is known as the three-state strategy. ” I think this is the amount of effort to put a necessary law in place is unnecessary because it should automatically be put in place.

I see that you are very passionate about women’s rights. Have you seen this movie- Reversing Roe? It is on Netflix! I thought you might be interested in this because it takes a look at the decades-long political campaign to try and overturn Roe v. Wade with interviews with abortion rights supporters and opponents.

Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because you are very well-versed.
