Transcript Page 4 BROADSIDE/HERIZONS August, 1981 ************ ERA QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS ************* Why do women want the ERA when they are already included in the Constitution? Women are not included in the Constitution-if they were, then why did we need the Nineteenth Amendment? Men always had the right to vote, but women had to fight for that right. Women will be drafted if the ERA is passed, won't they? Congress has the power now to draft men and women; to draft only men; to draft only women. It is entirely up to the whims of Congress, and as was recently revealed, they chose to express their discrimination by drafting only men. Women have always served in the military, although not necessarily in combat duty. However, only 10# of all men drafted have ever been sujected to combat. !Eh« draft and combat duty are not synonomous-people can be drafted & serve their country in many other ways other than through combat. It is also true that without the ERA should women be drafted to serve in any capacity, they are not required to be given the same benefits and services as men serving-this too is left to Congress and any rules or regulations enforced by our government. Because we do not have an ERA, women in the service of our country have not received the full benefits and privi- leges given to men who have served. NOW is against the draft. Women already have the same rights as men do don't they? Women have had to fight for the right to own and manage property; the right to become doctors and lawyers; the right to equal credit; the right to equal education.... The list is infinite, and there are hundreds of laws prohibiting women from participating fully in our society. We need the ERA to ensure that all rights are granted to women as well as men. Laws that would prohibit such rights would be unconstitutional if we had the ERA. *Your best source of information is through your local NOW Chapter. See page 11 for the one nearest you.
