    There is an argument that the ERA is still legally active  :)   (warning PDF)

    The ERA was first introduced nearly seventy-five years ago. Although some supporters have abandoned hope during the long struggle for ratification, many supporters have continued the fight for equality. The recent ratification of the 203-year-old Madison Amendment  gives these supporters new reason to believe that the ERA is still alive. Originally proposed without a time limit in 1789, the requisite thirty-eight states did not ratify the Madison Amendment until 1992. This ratification suggests that
    amendments, such as the ERA, which do not contain a textual time limit, remain valid for state ratification indefinitely.

    Don't let anyone tell you otherwise, before the police arrive ... teachers are first responders.
