1923 · Amendment of Equal Rights

Age 3

Is a proposed amendment to help guarantee equal legal rights for all citizens of the United States. Its main objective is to end legal distinctions between the two genders in terms of divorce, property, employment, and other legal matters. Even though it isn't the 28th Amendment yet, it has started conversations about the meaning of legal equality.

Name Meaning

English: habitational name from a place in Cumbria, first recorded in 1220 in its present form. There is a chapel of St. Martin here, and the valley ( see Dale ) may be named from this. Alternatively, there may have been a landowner here called Martin, and the church dedication may be due to popular association of his name with that of the saint.
