Create an argument in the affirmative or negative regarding the need for an Equa

Create an argument in the affirmative or negative regarding the need for an Equal Rights Amendment to the U.S. Constitution today. Be sure to include an historical evaluation of why the U.S. does not currently have such an amendment. If you argue in the affirmative, give the specific language that you would support in an ERA, address why the current laws and court interpretations are inadequate for the protection of women’s rights, and assess how an ERA would change the lives of women and men. If you argue in the negative, be sure to cite relevant laws and/or court cases that support equal rights, rendering an amendment unnecessary, and articulate the ways in which an ERA would alter life for the worse.
Everything should be in your own words. Do not plagarize!
