Transcript 9. FIGHT ANTI-ERA WITH FACTS, cont. inow some specirics. How win the £KA arrect our livesv wnat will remain the same, and what can, we expect to change? When considering the more than one thousand state and federal laws which treat men and women differently, the courts will face two primary choices: they can invalidate the particular law or equalize its application. The Yale Law Journal has an excellent analysis (made part of the ERA legislative history) of when courts tend to invalidate laws and when they tend :o extend laws to the omitted cla^ ;• Suffice it to say that legal chaos would not result, for many similar precedents have "been set under the 5"th and l^th Amendments, under the Civil Rights Act, not to mention the myriad court decisions regarding company and union regulations• The ERA would probably cause far less legal confusion than the Social Security legislation did. Within a framework of a single legal standard of equality, how does Congress envision the laws of the future. Does it intend that women be legally required to work outside the home; does it intend that daughters as well as sons be at the front lines of our next war; does it intend that husbands no longer support their wives and children? There are five major areas of legislation that would be affeetec by the Amendmenti Protective Labor Laws 5 Social Security Laws; Domestic Relation} Laws; Criminal Laws; Military and Draft Laws. I think the intent of Congress regarding each one is extremely Clear. (Reprinted from Dallas NOW newsletter) FRIEDAN WARNS: IF ERA LOSES, "THEY'LL TAKE IT ALL AWAY FROM US" In her Women's Week speeches at UH/CLC, Betty Friedan repeatedly linked passage of the ERA with preservation of laws already enacted that benefit women, and urged pressure on legislators to extend the arbitrary deadline on the amendment."The courts are trying to take our laws away from us," she said, "It's not safe...The ERA is not symbolic—it is the substance...Houston was a triumph (IWY), but it cost a year of energy away from the ERA...Women are tired from the triple effort of using the new things we've got - and running the home - and fighting for the ERA...My daughter is entering Harvard Medical School and says she's not a feminist, she's a person...I say to my daughter 'You've got to pay your dues.'"
