About this Item

Title

  • Toward equal rights for men and women

Summary

  • The author of this book, which includes a brief introduction by Sophonisba Breckenridge, maintains that an Equal Rights Amendment, such as the one then being proposed by Alice Paul and the Woman's Party, would lead to chaos and confusion. She argues that absolute equality with men would strip away certain forms of protective legislation from which certain groups of women benefit.
