The job of Congress is to represent the people of the United States, passing legislation that supports your constituents. 52% of your constituents are women. They are not insurance companies looking to raise their profits on the backs of women, they are not corporations, knowing full well that they can offer women lower salaries because the market will bear it - your constituents are people who are supporting their families through their income. They deserve to be represented fairly. Support the ERA, and support your constituents. Support the ERA, and support families. Help ensure that finally, America becomes the land of equality for all, not just a few. I live in the Czech Republic and vote in North Carolina.
