House Democrats are trying to eliminate the ratification deadline for a constitutional amendment that expired more than 30 years ago, but one of the Supreme Court’s left-leaning jurists says that the whole effort just needs to start over from the beginning.

At a Monday event at Georgetown University celebrating the centennial of the 19th Amendment, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was asked about her prognosis for the future of adding an Equal Rights Amendment to the United States Constitution.

The article goes on to state the following:

“I would like to see a new beginning,” the justice said. “I would like to start over.”

The Equal Rights Amendment — which said that “equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or any State on account of sex” — was passed by Congress in 1972 and was given a seven-year deadline followed by a three-year extension for the requisite three quarters states to sign on. By the time the extended deadline expired in 1982, only 35 of the 38 states necessary had ratified it.
