Opponents of the Equal Rights Amendment, like Phyllis Schlafly, argued that the passage of the ERA would:
a) relieve men of their responsibilities in terms of child support and alimony payments.
b) finally make women truly equal citizens, a goal set forth at Seneca Falls over a century before.
c) be amended so as to exclude women from being drafted into the armed forces.
d) not change anything, and so its ratification would mean nothing.
e) elevate women to a superior class, allowing women to outnumber men in politics, professional jobs, and higher education programs within a decade
