Original Message Thirty-seven states have ratified the Equal Rights Amendment, just one shy of the 38 required to ratify a constitutional amendment.

Now, there's an effort to get Virginia on board to pass the amendment during the General Assembly session early next year.

The proposed federal amendment would guarantee equal rights on the basis of gender. Congress passed the law in 1972 and states are required to ratify it to make it a constitutional amendment, but not enough have. At the time, Congress put a 10-year deadline to ratify, but advocates believe ratification can still happen.
