The legal equality of women in Oregon was part of a 1982 court decision. But Leanne Littrell Di Lorenzo with “Vote ERA.Org” says that is feeble protection. She reads the 24 word document: “An amendment in the Constitution that says equality of rights under the law, should not be denied or abridged, by the State of Oregon or by any political subdivision, in the state on account of sex. She is building support for a state constitutional Equal Rights Amendment. If it passes the legislature the amendment could be on a state ballot next year.
