Are Women People?!

Description: Students will be introduced to the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) and how it has been viewed throughout history. The debate over the ERA has been going on for decades. Have the arguments for and against it changed over time? Students will take on the role of investigators and work with a variety of primary and secondary sources to examine the arguments around the ERA by working in rotating station groups. As a team, they will have the opportunity to discuss the documents together and make a decision on the relevance of the ERA to their lives today. Do we need an Equal Rights Amendment added to the Constitution?
