RICHMOND (January 15, 2020)—Attorney General Mark R. Herring issued the following statement on the passage of resolutions to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment by the Virginia House of Delegates and Virginia Senate

 

“Today is an absolutely historic day for our Commonwealth and a major milestone in the fight for equality in this nation. Women in America deserve to have equality guaranteed in the Constitution and Virginians should be proud that we will be the state that makes it happen.
