    "Illinois state lawmakers voted Wednesday to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment — decades after Congress’s deadline to ratify the measure expired."

    Illinois ratifies Equal Rights Amendment — decades after deadline

    Nevada did last year, leaving only one more state for it to be ratified.

    Do you, the reader, support its ratification? I do.

    If the deadline has passed, does its passage matter other than symbolically?
