This lesson asks students to examine the arguments for and against the Equal Rights Amendment. If you are a School Violence Prevention teacher, you will recognize the use of intellectual tools from the Justice section of Foundations of Democracy to examine how each side, in the 1970s, perceived American women’s need, capacity, and desert of this Constitutional amendment. Then they will decide whether or not the amendment is necessary and relevant today.
