States in green are where the ERA was in the news this week!

Hello all,

 It was another exciting week for news out of both Virginia and Florida, as Equal Rights Amendment supporters and legislators have come out in vocal support of ratification. We're eager to follow both states and see which one wins the race to becoming the 38th state. 

 Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg also joined in support of the Equal Rights Amendment as she spoke to several law classes and news outlets. Find her interviews, including a podcast recording, in the National and Illinois news sections (below).
