Primary Source Set: Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) in Florida:

From 1972 to 1982, Florida lawmakers addressed the question of whether to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA). The amendment proposed that “Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or any State on account of sex.” Floridians’ response to the ERA mirrored the national divide over the amendment’s message on gender equality. This resource from Florida Memory provides primary sources to support the teaching of the ERA in a Florida context.
