Last month, a bipartisan group of lawmakers in both chambers introduced a resolution to eliminate the deadline for state ratification of the ERA, which would write into the Constitution that the federal and state governments can’t deny or abridge equality of rights based on sex. The ERA has been approved by 38 states, reaching the three-fourths threshold required for ratification, but three of those occurred decades past the original set of deadlines. A resolution to eliminate the deadline passed last year in the Democratic-controlled House, but was never taken up in the Senate, then controlled by Republicans. Now, Democrats’ full control of government has reignited the push to culminate the long, messy fight over the effort to spell out women’s equality, and new votes could come as soon as this spring. Even if Congress passes the resolution to remove the deadline, many legal experts say it isn’t clear if that would remove the final obstacles to ratification.
