Want to help women? Ratify the ERA

How does Oprah Winfrey stack up against Donald Trump?

If the entertainment industry is really passionate about taking on issues such as sexual harassment and equal treatment for men and women, perhaps its members should consider working to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment (“Media miss Oprah’s point, and the movement’s,” Jan. 9).

How many of them even know that our Constitution does not currently contain such an amendment? Although there are some unresolved legal issues attendant to the Equal Rights Amendment — such as the effect of the attempt by four states to rescind their ratification and the validity of one state's attempt to ratify after the expiration date — these matters can be resolved by the courts if the amendment is resuscitated.
