The Equal Rights Amendment States:

“Section 1: Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of sex.

Section 2: The Congress shall have the power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article.

Section 3: This amendment shall take effect two years after the date of ratification.”

TAKE ACTION

Congress passed the ERA in 1972. Then in 2020, Virginia became the final 38th state needed to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment

However, while the Constitution doesn't put any time limit on states ratifying an amendment — the 27th Amendment took more than 200 years to become a reality — Congress put a time limit on ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment in the preamble to this amendment which supposedly timed out in 1982.
