The Fifteen States Where Women Are Not Considered Equal:
Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Nevada, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Utah and Virginia.
They never ratified the ERA Equal Rights Amendment and a ratify by a certain date had never been imposed before on any constitutional amendment, thus paving the way for a non-neanderthal, non-majority-catholic U.S. Supreme Court to knock down the artificial barrier to its passage.
Illinois is working on being the 36th state to ratify.
That leaves two states needed for passage in the primordial redneck soup in the deep South of America aside from the Mormon western states.
Stranger things have happened.
