SENATE MEMORIAL NO. 1452
****************************
A memorial to the Congress of the United States to enact the Equal Rights Amendment.
WHEREAS, all citizens, regardless of their sex, should be treated as equals by the laws of the land; and
WHEREAS, the United States Constitution, through omission, does not clearly grant equality as citizens to women; and 
WHEREAS, some one thousand statutes of fifty states discriminate between citizens on the basis of sex; and 
WHEREAS, the United States Supreme Court has refused to apply the constitutional guarantee of "equal protection of the laws" in cases involving discriminatory distinctions based on sex; and 
WHEREAS, both men and women complain of legal discriminations against persons of their sex; and 
WHEREAS, both men and women complain of special advantages granted by law to persons of the opposite sex; and

WHEREAS, the proposed equal rights amendment to the United States Constitution would eliminate differences in legal rights and responsibilities between the sexes, thus giving unfair advantage to neither; and
WHEREAS, the members of this legislative body are aware of the need to resolve this conflict through such an amendment.
Be it Resolved by the Legislature of the State of Florida:
That the Congress of the United States is hereby requested to pass the equal rights amendment, which states: "Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of sex."
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that copies of this memorial be dispatched to the president of the United States, to the president of the United States Senate, to the speaker of the United States House of Representatives, and to each member of the Florida delegation to the United States Congress.
