No, it never was. There had been efforts to pass and ratify an equal rights amendment as far back as 1923, but there was little progress until the women's movement of the 1960s put the issue back into the public eye. For a while in the late 60s and early-to-mid 1970s, it seemed the amendment had momentum and would finally be ratified; but unfortunately, despite considerable effort on the part of many prominent women (including then-First Lady Betty Ford), the Equal Rights Amendment did not get enough states to support it. There was a heavily organized attempt on the part of conservatives to stop the amendment, and the effort succeeded. In 1982, the Amendment ran out of time, falling three states short of the necessary number to become law.
