Introduction

       Produced and distributed by the Iowa Women’s Equality Campaign in 1992, the following three pages reproduce part of a brochure in which the campaign organizers focus on positive outcomes of the amendment. These include constitutional protection for women in education, sports opportunities, and divorce and child-support legislation. Campaign organizers also clearly identifed four groups of women who would be aided by the ERA and were most at risk of discrimination: "older women, young women, working women, and homemakers."
