The House just passed the #ERA, bringing us one step closer to true equality under the law. Now it's time for @senatemajldr
to do his job & hold a vote on this critical legislation to ensure that women can no longer be discriminated against simply for being who they are. #ERANow
“When women succeed, America succeeds.” -Nancy Pelosi #ERANow
Women are sick and tired of being second-class citizens in their own country. The absence of the ERA has meant that women can be paid less for their work, violated with impunity, and discriminated against simply for being who they are. We are done! We need the #ERANow!
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal."
Isn't it about time for that to be all women too?
I can't believe how obsessed some of my colleagues are in controlling women. The folks voting no on #ERANow are just condoning oppression of women in America. It's sick!
When you lift up women, you lift up children, families, communities and all of society. That's why it's so critical that we finally—in 2020—pass the Equal Rights Amendment. Today, the House passed a resolution to make this happen. The Senate must do its job and pass it. #ERANow
BREAKING: The House just voted to remove the deadline from the Equal Rights Amendment.
After 97 years, this vote could help ensure that the ERA can finally become a part of our Constitution. #ERANow
Best #GalentinesDay present ever.
What a glorious day!
Today, the House voted to remove the arbitrary deadline to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment. Because equality of the sexes is not debatable. It has no expiration date.
We won’t rest until & women & men are finally equal under the eyes of the law! #ERANow
How do we celebrate #GalentinesDay in the House? Voting for equal rights for women!! #ERA #ERAVote #ERANow #WomenofCongress https://t.co/xY59C4O5D7
Women have waited far too long, fought far too hard & sacrificed far too much to be denied legal & constitutional equality.
We just voted to remove ERA deadline because inequity and injustice cannot remain the law of this land. #ERANow
I couldn't be prouder to have guided the #ERA through @HouseJudiciary
and managed the debate on the House floor this morning as we took the historic step to enshrine equal rights for women in the Constitution. #ERANow
I first introduced the Equal Rights Amendment (#ERA) 20+ years ago – and it’s as needed today as it was then.
Women’s equality WILL be spelled out in the Constitution.
And we will spell it E-R-A.
My full floor speech in support of #HJRes79:
Earlier this year, @vademocrats
made Virginia the final state needed to ratify the ERA – and today, the House voted to remove the ERA's arbitrary deadline. Now it's up to Senate to act.
Let's vote to guarantee full and equal protection for women under the Constitution. #ERANow
On a historic day when the House passed #ERANow for #CA12 and for all America – and the week the #TrumpBudget reared its ugly head, Speaker Pelosi also tackled the lawlessness of Trump and his henchman Bill Barr.
Beyond Romney, it's time for Republicans in Congress to speak out! https://t.co/PDS3nUqoQy
182 Republicans voted against a resolution to facilitate timely ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
182 Republicans voted against equal rights for women. #ERANow
This morning, I spoke on the House Floor about why we need the #ERANow.
It's time for the GOP to stop playing political games and instead choose to immediately enshrine women's equality in the Constitution.
¡Ya es hora de aprobar el ERA! It is time to approve the ERA!
“Girls just want to be equal” — yes, we do! And today we voted! #ERANow #ERAVote #ERA
The House just voted to remove the deadline for ratifying the #EqualRightsAmendment, guaranteeing equality for women under the Constitution once and for all.
There shouldn't be a deadline on equality. Now it's the Senate's turn. It's time for #ERANow.
When women succeed, America succeeds. That's why @HouseDemocrats
are voting TODAY to revive the Equal Rights Amendment! #ERANow
The Equal Rights Amendment is long overdue. It will go a long way towards ensuring gender equity and I’m eager to see it ratified by the remaining states. #ERANow https://t.co/m5hvccKm1Y
There should not be an expiration date on equality!
The House voted (232-183) today to remove a 1982 deadline for states to ratify the ERA. A similar resolution has been introduced in the Senate.
to do his job & hold a vote. #ERANow
Rep. Debbie Mucarsel-Powell @RepDMP
Happy #GalentinesDay! I'm celebrating with my fellow Congresswomen by voting to facilitate the ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment.
It's past time we include women’s equality in our Constitution. #ERANow https://t.co/cDIbdnLxlt
How long have I been working to pass the #ERA?
Here's an article from my FIRST DAY on Capitol Hill after flipping my district from Red to Blue in 1992.
Check out the last line!

Our kids should grow up in a world without the stain of systemic discrimination. Standing on the shoulders of generations of activists, the House just voted to pave the way to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment. Equality has no deadline. #ERANow
The House of Representatives voted earlier today to remove the ratification deadline for the #EqualRightsAmendment! This is a huge step towards officially ratifying the ERA. 🎉🎉🎉 #ERANow
NEWS: The U.S. House of Reps. passed H.J. Res. 79, clearing the path for the #EqualRightsAmendment's adoption. Now, it's the Senate's turn to act.
