Is the failed equal rights the 14th amendment?

The 14th amendment does concern equal rights, but it would be an error to describe it as "failed" ... it just took a while (100 years or so) to actually become effectual in practice. The proposed amendment called the Equal Rights Amendment that was never passed, and could therefore reasonably be described as "failed", would have been the 20th amendment had it passed when it was proposed, or the 27th if had passed when it was finally accepted by Congress. Since it was not ratified by a sufficient number of states to be made part of the Constitution, it doesn't HAVE a number, though it could theoretically be re-proposed as what would become the 28th Amendment were it to pass.
