They’re back.

ERA is back from the dead, and that great champion of women’s rights, Teddy (Owl Club) Kennedy is leading the resurrection:

WASHINGTON, March 26 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Senator Ted Kennedy (D- MA), Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA), Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY), Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), and Ellie Smeal, President of the Feminist Majority and strong leader on the fight for women’s equality will announce the reintroduction of the Women’s Equality Amendment on Tuesday. An amendment to guarantee equal rights to women has still never been ratified and added to the U.S. Constitution, even though it was first introduced in 1923. The ERA passed Congress in 1972 but lapsed in 1982 when it fell three states short of ratification. This year, there are more than 190 original co-sponsors of the Women’s Equality Amendment (ERA).

The Members will also announce the plans for forthcoming hearings on the Women’s Equality Amendment in the House Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights and Civil Liberties, Chaired by Rep. Nadler.

The Senators and Members will be joined by leading women’s rights groups for the reintroduction with the hopes that in the 110th Congress, women will finally achieve official equality in America.

WHAT: Announcement of the Women’s Equality Amendment
WHO: Senator Edward Kennedy (D-MA)
Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA)
Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY)
Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-CA)
Rep. John Dingell (D-MI)
Rep. Lynn Woolsey (D-CA)
Eleanor Smeal, Feminist Majority

WHEN: TUESDAY, March 27, 2:30 pm
