“Who’d Be Against Equal Rights for Women?” New Perspectives on 1972–1973
The twelve-month period between January 1972 and January 1973 was unlike any other in the history of the women’s rights movement:
- In January, Shirley Chisholm announced her candidacy for the Democratic nomination for president, becoming the first woman and the first African American to run for a major party’s presidential nomination.
- Two months later, Congress passed the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA), nearly fifty years after the measure first appeared before that chamber.
- Title IX of the Higher Education Act, which Congress enacted in August, barred sex discrimination in educational institutions receiving federal funds.
- Finally, as part of a series of decisions that applied the concept of privacy to the realms of sexuality and reproduction, the Supreme Court in Roe v. Wade (1973) overturned state abortion bans.
As congresswoman Bella Abzug (D-NY) noted, it “was a watershed year. We put sex discrimination provisions into everything. There was no opposition. Who’d be against equal rights for women? So we just kept passing women’s rights legislation.”
Fifty years later, each case in this display looks back at one of these events, contextualizing them within a longer history and opening them up to broader themes and questions, including changing perceptions of women’s bodies, the development of intersectional feminism, the contested meaning of economic equality for women, the limited usefulness of the wave metaphor, and recent controversies over reproductive rights.
