2372. "I am woman, hear me roar"

Many millions of marchers did snake
And equality claims they did stake
E.R.A. didn't pass
Kinda ran out of gas
But at this point, what diff. does it make?

The Equal Rights Amendment did pass the house and senate in 1972. However, ratification required a 75% majority of states (38 of the 50.)  Only 35 ever did so.  IMO, the ERA isn't necessary if existing civil rights laws are upheld.
