Virginia's campaign to ratify the equal rights amendment.
With a change in House leadership and a majority of equality candidates elected (55 in the House of Delegates and 26 in the Senate), Virginia is poised to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment during the 2020 legislative session. The ratification is supported by 83% of Virginians, according to a recent Washington Post-Schar School poll (September 2019).
