Abstract:     
Looking at the history of the Bill of Rights, this critique supports the ratification of the proposed Twenty-Seventh Amendment, ensuring equal rights among the sexes. While the meaning and interpretation of the Amendment may not yet be clearly defined, this article argues that the same is true for most amendments to the Constitution, yet constitutional law has still greatly benefited from their inclusion.
