Virginia could become last state needed to ratify Equal Rights Amendment
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.

No, just posting a link showing the possibility for ratification of Amendment 28, the first amendment to our Constitution since 1992.

And by the way, thanks for replying to my thread.

I don't think so. A constitutional amendment becomes part of the Constitution and thus is the law of the land. Even the Supreme Court cannot nullify it.

Re: Virginia could become last state needed to ratify Equal Rights Amendment
The Equal Rights Amendment Is an Artifact No More

Newly empowered Democrats are likely to make Virginia the final state needed to ratify the long-dormant ERA.

“We will be bringing that back, and yes, we do have the votes to pass it,” declared Eileen Filler-Corn, the Virginia state representative who is likely to become the first woman speaker of its House of Delegates.

Virginia’s ratification would cheer progressive women nationwide, including millions who have only read about the fight for the Equal Rights Amendment in history books. And it would thrust a constitutional debate back into Congress’s lap during a year that happens to be the centennial anniversary of women’s suffrage. Its passage would not, however, be the last word on the ERA.

The amendment fits on a single piece of paper and has a main clause with just 24 words: “Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of sex.”

When the House and Senate each finally approved the ERA, in 1972, the resolution included a seven-year deadline for ratification by three-quarters of the states—a timeline that had been absent from the early amendments to the Constitution but had become standard for proposals in the 20th century. Congress ultimately extended the deadline to 1982, when the amendment was three states short of the threshold for ratification. But by then, the momentum for passage had long since faded.

Nevada became the 36th state—and the first in 42 years—to ratify the ERA in 2017, and Illinois followed a year later.

Virginia would be the last state necessary to ratify the amendment.

It’s been the law since 1964. This is just BS pandering.

No, it says "sex", not "gender".
