Equal Rights Amendment

The ERA can't be revived

Bob Marshall, The Virginian-Pilot

Lately, proponents of the Equal Rights Amendment have claimed that they only need three more states to ratify it, instead of 38 as the Constitution requires.

In 2017-18, two states — Illinois and Nevada — attempted to resurrect the amendment and ratified it. Despite these recent political maneuvers, the Virginia General Assembly should acknowledge the facts and stop posturing on a dead ERA.
