I’m a College Volleyball Player. ERA Would Destroy My Sport.

In their renewed attempt to ratify the so-called Equal Rights Amendment, Senate Democrats are quick to erase 50-plus years of progress and opportunity for women.

Sen. Richard Durbin, D-Ill., chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, shamelessly mocked the accomplishments of thousands of female athletes as he joked Feb. 28 about the “fate of field hockey” during his committee’s hearing on the revived Equal Rights Amendment.

Don’t worry, Durbin did admit that female athletes “would probably feel very strongly about the issue, if they are field hockey players.”

As a collegiate volleyball player who has sacrificed much of my life to earn an athletic scholarship, I humbly request an end to this disrespect for female accomplishments in competitive sports.
