Huge March in Support of the Equal Rights Amendment

On July 9, 1978 , Washington, DC was the site of a massive march in support of the Equal Rights Amendment.  This amendment to the constitution stated:

“Section 1: Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of sex.

“Section 2: The Congress shall have the power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article.

“Section 3: This amendment shall take effect two years after the date of ratification.”
