A group of 93 companies whose businesses span the breadth of the U.S. economy have proudly come together as signatories to a brief in support of the ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Amici believe that ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment would send a powerful message about the nation’s commitment to gender equality and be transformational for the American economy. By eliminating systemic barriers that impede women’s economic and social advancement, the Equal Rights Amendment would result in a more just, vibrant, and productive America. The full brief in support of Plaintiff States can be viewed here.
