On this day in History 3/22

On this day in 1972, The US Congress passed the Equal Rights Amendment.  Introduced to Congress in 1923, the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA), a proposed constitutional guarantee of women’s rights, passed and was sent to the states for ratification. Final ratification will fall short of the threshold needed by three states and the amendment will eventually die.
