EQUAL RIGHTS AMENDMENT

 Virginia, with its newly flipped state government, became the 38th state to pass the ERA, a proposed constitutional amendment that would prohibit discrimination based on sex. With three-fourth of the states having ratified the ERA, it is now ready to be added to the Constitution—except that the deadline
for ratification has passed.

Let’s tell our two senators and one representative to sign on to S.J.Res.6, the joint resolution that would eliminate the deadline for ratification of the ERA and allow for its adoption.
