On the outside
If there were such a thing, today would be a great
day to stay inside and work on those term papers. Such
a prospect couldn't be more chilling than today's tem-
peratures, which will go no higher than 22 and will get
down to 7.
WASHINGTON (AP)-The Equal
Rights Amendment has little or no
chance of being ratified soon in seven
states that have been targeted for
heavy lobbying by a leading women's
rights organization, a recent survey by
the Associated Press shows.
Both supporters and opponents of the
amendment painted a black picture of
ratification prospects in the seven
states-Arizona, Florida, Illinois,
Missouri, Nevada, North Carolina and,
Oklahoma-which have been targeted
for lobbying by the National Women's
AN EIGHTH state, Georgia, is on a.
separate list maintained by Sarah
Weddington, President Carter's special
assistant for women's affairs. Florida,
Nevada and North Carolina also are on
Weddington's priority list.
"It's dead," Nevada Gov. Mike
O'Callaghan, a Democrat, said of chan-
ces for ratification of the ERA in his
Mary Odom, president of North
Carolinians United for ERA, summed it
up this way: "If we took a vote today,
we couldn't win."
IN FLORIDA, for example, a
ratification effort fell short in a special
session last week. Prospects for
ratification next year are rated about
50-50, with the balance tipped slightly
toward the opponents. The legislature
does not meet again until April 3.
Other states which have not ratified
the ERA are Alabama, Arkansas,
Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina,
Utah and Virginia. The women's
caucus did not make a special effort in
these states, which are not considered
prime targets for ratification. In
Virginia, for instance, ERA supporters
have failed five times to win its
The ERA, first approved by Congress
in 1971, got a new lease on life earlier
this year when the House and Senate
approved a resolhtion extending its
ratification deadline from March 22,
1979, to June 30, 1982. That action
spurred new and even more intensive
lobbying by supporters and opponents
of the proposed constitutional amen-
dment, which would probhibit
discrimination on the basis of sex.

THE SURVEY showed little support
for/predictions by some ERA backers
that the extension would provide the
impetus for the amendment's approval
by the necessary 38 states before the
original March 22 deadline.
So far, 35 states have ratified the
ERA. But legislatures in four of these
states-Idaho, Kentucky, Nebraska
and Tennessee-have voted to rescind
their approval votes. The General Ser-
vices Administration, which records
ratifications by the states, has said that
the rescinding votes will be forwarded
to Congress for a decision on their
Opponents of the ERA have said they
will file court challenges to the exten-
sion of the ratification deadline-the
first reprieve granted for a con-
stitutional amendment since Congress
began setting time limits early in this
THE PROTRACTED battle over the
ERA has been an emotional one in
which supporters insist that women
need their rights spelled out in the U.S.
Constitution while opponents insist that
equal fervor that federal statutes
already on the books do an adequate job
of protecting women against
The ERA states simply that "equality
of rights under law shall not be denied
or abridged by the United States or any
state on account of sex."
The opposition forces, led by Phyllis
Schlafly, have argued that ratification
of the ERA would, among other things,
subject women to military draft.
Schlafly, national chairman of Stop
ERA, has said that a modified ERA
which would not deprive women "of
any of the rights, exemptions and
benefits they now possess . . . would
allow for rational differences between
men and women."
