Woman’s Social Equality

  1. We should support the equal application of the Constitution of the United States of America to all citizens, and therefore call for passage of the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA). We must urge renewed efforts and campaigns to ratify the ERA.
  2. We call for equal representation of women in Congress.
  3. The U.S. must ratify the CEDAW, the Convention on the Elimination of all forms of Discrimination Against Women which was adopted in 1979 by the U.N. General Assembly and ratified by 173 countries. The U.S. is one of the very few countries, and the only industrialized nation, that have not ratified it.
  4. The Equal Employment Opportunities Commission should actively investigate and prosecute sexual harassment complaints. Women who file complaints must not be persecuted and should be protected under federal and state law. We must enshrine in law the basic principle that women have the same rights as men. We should promote gender equality and fairness in the work force to ensure that women receive equal pay for jobs of equal worth.
  5. It is important for the inclusion of an equal number of women and men in peace talks and negotiations. Not only because these efforts directly affect their lives and those of their husbands, children and families, but also because when women are involved, the negotiations are often more successful.
