Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) wants your vote in the 2020 presidential election, but he may first want to brush up on the Constitution. In his own way of trying to stand up for women’s rights (or to just court the woman vote?), he tweeted the following observation.
Do you know how many times the word "Woman" is mentioned in the Constitution?
That is unacceptable. Women must be equally represented and equally protected. #ERANow

Other social media users, who didn’t pretend to be constitutional scholars, were quick to note that the word “man” is mysteriously absent from the document too.

“Man” isn’t in the Constitution either.

You should try reading the document you swore to uphold before engaging in mindless and divisive virtue signaling.

Still, actress Patricia Arquette shared similar sentiments on the Hill Wednesday, when speaking on behalf of the Equal Rights Amendment.
"Women have waited 232 years to be enshrined as full and equal citizens. Why? Because in 1787 women were left out of the Constitution intentionally."
