I just learned that the boys in some committee in Richmond voted against the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA). The fact that the ERA bill has yet to be passed in my opinion should be offensive to all U.S. citizens. What does "We the People" really mean? As far as the Virginia's boys club not passing it (all the men/boys voted against it and the women voted for it), I believe that any issue as significant as the ERA Amendment should be voted on by the Virginia’s general public — Not a by a male-dominated committee in the backroom. The ERA Amendment should be put on the November 2018 ballot.
