This article is amazing. If anyone has any doubts on the ERA becoming law, please read this article:

Virginia just became the 38th and final state needed to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment, which states, “Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.” An amendment proposed by Congress becomes law when three-fourths of the states agree with Congress and vote to ratify.
