Read the excerpt from shirley chisholm’s speech “equal rights for women.” as a black person, i am no stranger to race prejudice. but the truth is that in the political world i have been far oftener discriminated against because i am a woman than because i am black. prejudice against blacks is becoming unacceptable although it will take years to eliminate it. but it is doomed because, slowly, white america is beginning to admit that it exists. prejudice against women is still acceptable. there is very little understanding yet of the immorality involved in double pay scales and the classification of most of the better jobs as “for men only.” the fourteenth amendment states all persons born or naturalized in the united states, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the united states and of the state wherein they reside. no state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the united states; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws. how does chisholm incorporate the constitutional principle based on the fourteenth amendment in the excerpt? by comparing the unequal treatment shared by african americans and women by explaining how life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness are not shared by all citizens by showing that the government has made no effort to enforce the rights of all people by conveying the idea that everyone must live by the words stated in the constitution
No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
B) A citizen of the United States
The Fourteenth Amendment, ratified in 1868, explicitly grants the US citizenship to anyone who was born or naturalized in the nation. Therefore, event though Alexandra's parents are not from the United States, she herself was born in one of the 50 states of America: Michigan, and should be considered an American citizen.
due process of law.

it keeps other states from taking away the citizen's rights
sad life my guy/ gal
The concept of due process in the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution had changed by expanding the protections of due process to state laws.
The concept of due process in the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution had changed by expanding the protections of due process to state laws. The amendment can be broken in two categories namely; procedural due process and substantive due process. The procedural due process addresses which legal procedures are required to be followed in state proceedings while the substantive due process evaluates whether a law can be applied by states at all, regardless of the procedure followed such as liberty of contract or privacy.
the last answer- The Equal Rights Amendment may be neccessary to explain the 14th Amendment and ensure equal rights for women.
