PRA Archive #: 

Carol Burris, National Organization for Women (NOW) and a coordinator of the Equal Rights Amendment, talks about the proposed Amendment. Burris discusses the fact that the 5th and 14th Amendments have not prevented discrimination against women in the areas of divorce, alimony and child support laws, labor laws, and military service regulations. She traces the evolution of the legal status of women which dates from English Common Law: women as property, the "hidden woman," both concepts which have prevented women from becoming involved in the political process. Produced by WETA-FM, Pacifica affiliate in Arlington, Virginia.
