PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — If the campaign is any indication, a proposal to give Oregon women a stronger safeguard against discrimination could win in a landslide. Twenty arguments in support of adding an equal rights amendment to the Oregon Constitution — from Democrats and Republicans — appear in the voters' pamphlet that just arrived at homes ahead of the Nov. 4 election. Meanwhile, not one person or group wrote an argument in opposition to Ballot Measure 89, and no money has been raised to defeat it.
