US gender equality: House to decide Equal Rights Amendment
US House is set to vote this week on whether to remove ratification deadline for ERA.
A century-old effort to enshrine gender equality in the US constitution is on the verge of success.
The House of Representatives is considering whether to extend a deadline that would allow the Equal Rights Amendment to be added to the constitution.
If successful, it would prohibit the government from denying equal rights to a person on the basis of their sex.
