It'll likely pass the HoD, which is unfortunate.

However I highly doubt this succeeds in becoming part of the constitution, especially since the deadline has passed on it, and several states have rescinded their ratification prior to the original deadline.

By the way, as long as the Virginia Assembly is considering old amendments, it would be nice if they'd go ahead and ratify the Child Labor Amendment.
I know this was addressed to Muon, but doubtful they actually go for it (at least not this session). The ERA is part of a bigger agenda for these folks, one that doesn't actually do what advocates here want it to.

What agenda is that?
A lot of advocates for it here are under the false assumption that this will protect abortions.

If the Democrats were smart they would make a big push for this. It may be symbolic, but it'll remind people of where Republicans stand on women.
Plenty of women don't support the ERA.
