Murphy stands up for equal rights

murphy 041118SPRINGFIELD — State Senator Laura Murphy (D-Des Plaines) issued the following statement on the Senate’s passage of the Equal Rights Amendment:

“I am proud to co-sponsor this legislation and support equal rights for women. It is astonishing that in 2018 women are not expressly guaranteed equal rights at the federal level. Ratifying the Equal Rights Amendment to the U.S. Constitution would ensure men and women have equal protection under the law. ”
