We cannot ensure that women will be free of discrimination in the workplace and everywhere as long as women are not universally defended under our Constitution. As it stands now, the equal rights of women are subject to interpretation of law. That is a risk our mothers, sisters and daughters cannot afford.
We need a mayor who knows how to balance a budget, who understands the urgency of delivering all the services that a great city needs, who understand the need of working families.
While men's rights are guaranteed by specific language in the Constitution, women's equal rights aren't mentioned.
The only way to ensure equality for women is to clearly declare it in our Constitution.
The proposal that men and women should be treated equally under the law is hardly a controversial concept.
