The big picture: If added to the Constitution, the ERA would guarantee that constitutional rights may not be denied or abridged on account of sex.

On Jan. 27, 2020, Virginia became the 38th state to ratify the ERA.

The amendment states that it shall go into effect exactly two years after ratification, according to Maloney and Speier.

Yes, but: When Congress passed the amendment in 1972, it contained a 7-year ratification deadline in the preamble of the joint resolution.

Virginia, Nevada and Illinois became the 36th, 37th and 38th states to ratify the ERA in 2020, 2017 and 2018, respectively.

It argued at the time that the latest states to ratify the ERA cannot actually do so because the deadline to ratify the ERA expired.

President Biden on Thursday expressed his support for the ERA resolution, calling on Congress "to act immediately to pass a resolution recognizing ratification of the ERA.". »
