4th Grade Reading Level

When gender determines who can vote, half of the people of any state lose their right to vote. It is like declaring a person guilty without a trial. It goes against the law of the land. It denies liberty to women and future generations of women. 

6th Grade Reading Level

For any state to make sex a qualification for voting results in the loss of the rights of half of its people. It is to declare them guilty without a trial, or to pass an ex post facto law. It is a violation of the supreme law of the land.It withholds the blessings of liberty from women and their future generations.

8th Grade Reading Level

For any State to make sex a qualification that must ever result in the disfranchisement of one entire half of the people is to pass a bill of attainder, or an ex post facto law, and is therefore a violation of the supreme law of the land. By it the blessings of liberty are forever withheld from women and their female posterity.
