Feminism was a movement to interest women in lesbianism. It failed. Interest in gay men was a success. The Equal Rights Amendment was about remuneration for work. In this case, women were not to be paid less than males for the same work. This made sense, of course. Typing at a computer, for example, should not earn women less then men. The key is "same work" at the same level of competence--from microsurgery to bricklaying.
