Did you know that women do not have constitutional equality in the U.S.?
That’s because the Equal Rights Amendment to the constitution guaranteeing women equality has still not passed. That allows employers consistently to underpay women. This week on The Deciders, Renee Fraser talks to Kathy Spillar, Executive Director of the Feminist Majority Foundation and of Ms. Magazine.
