We just saw history.
Today, Virginia became the 38th state to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment – crossing the three-fourths threshold of support required from the states.
Now we need Congress to remove the deadline so the ERA can become a permanent part of the U.S. Constitution.
When the ERA passed Congress in 1972, lawmakers attached a 1977 ratification deadline to it, which they later extended to 1982. Earlier this month, the League of Women Voters of the United States sent a letter to the United States Congress urging them to remove the ratification deadline on the ERA.
