Transcript Dear Speaker Ryan: The Republicans in the House of Representatives in Illinois are blocking the change in the rules from three-fifths to a majority vote for the ERA. Moreover, Republican opposition to the ERA itself is thwarting ratification in Illinois Before it's too late, reverse your position on the ERA and join a majority of Republicans, Democrats, and the nation in support of the ERA. Equality for womon is at stake. Senator Scott: Before it's too late, reverse your position on the ERA. A majority of Republicans, of Democrats, and the people of this nation suppport the Equal Rights Amendment. Your opposition, despite the wishes of the majority of you Constituents, shows that your party loyalty transcends the wishes of your constituents. Remember, before the current Reagan Admini- stration, the ERA was a bipartisan issue. Don't allow the Republican Party to desert equal rights for women. Before it's too late, support the ERA. Equality for women is at stake. Dear Senator Baker: I am writing you, as leader of the Republicans in Congress, to inform you of my concern and dismay at the widespread Republican opposition to the Equal Rights Amendment. Please exercise your leadership arid ruvcruu the current Republican opposition to the ERA before it is too late. The White House and Republican National Com- mittee must hear more Republican leaders speak out for the ERA. Fewer women are supporting Republicans than Democrats, a trend which can be reversed only by support of women's rights and the ERA. Dear Mr. Childers, What Florida decides about the Equal Rights Amendment could determine the direction of women's rights for the next genera- :ion. Your support is critical. As you consider ERA I hope you will remember that elderly a/omen and the wives of military personnel are among those who suffer most from discrimination based on sex. Florida contains large numbers of such women. You can play a key role in history by providing the leadership to pass ERA. Just as the Iowa caucuses often determine the direction of Presidential elections, your vote may very well determine the future of women's rights nationwide. I want you to know that women and men all across the country are counting on your leadership for passage of the historic Equal Rights Amendment, uear Senator Green: I am writing to you, as the leader of the Republican Senate Caucus, to say that I deplore "block voting" of Republican senators in Oklahoma against the Equal Rights Amendment. Are there no Republican senators in Oklahoma Eor whom representing their constituents is more important than loyalty to their party? We know that recent polls show that most Oklahomans are for the ERA. Republicans are thwarting the will of the people. Equality for women is at stake. Who represents Republicans for the ERA? Dear Mr. Richards: The Republican National Committee is out of tune with the nation on women's rights and the Equal Rights Amendment. A solid majority of Republicans, a solid majority of Democrats, and a solid majority of the nation supports the ERA. I urge the Republican National Committee to reverse its stand and support the ERA before it is too late. Republicans are losing women's votes, as the polls so clearly demonstrate. Support for ERA can reverse this trend. GEORGE RYAN SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE STATE HOUSE, RM. 300 SPRINGFIELD, ILL 62706 SEN. JAMES SCOTT STATE CAPITOL TALLAHASSEE, FLA 32301 SEN.
