Political As Edith Bunker, I don t have equal rights. As Jean Staple ton, 1 don t either. I'm a woman. And like all women. I am not treated as a man's equal. My insurance rates are higher. My Social Security benefits are less. As a widow. I'd have to pay a big inheritance tax on my very own home. And there are hundreds of jobs that pay one salary to men. a lower one to a woman. I say it's plain unfair. I say something should be done about all this inequality in our society. I say there ought a be a law. It's the only way we can be sure that men and women will be treated equally in the future. The Equal Rights Amendment can be that law. So far. legislators in 34 states have seen the importance ol this law. and voted yes. We still need 4 more. Your legislators are voting now. You can play an active part in convincing them to vote yes. Write to your senator. And say you think there oughta be a law. too. The Equal Rights Amendment. Then- oughta be a law.
