Earlier this year, Justice Scalia opined that the 14th Amendment guarantee of equal protection does not apply to sex discrimination. His comments alone make a powerful, compelling argument that a Constitutional amendment is needed to protect women from discrimination. A Constitutional amendment would be an unassailable guarantee of equality and a symbol that attitudes toward women have changed.
