Actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus has made a rallying call for Democrats to win back four seats in Virginia’s state legislature, declaring that such a result would enable them to ensure women finally have “equal rights in the U.S. constitution.”
The 58-year-old actress made the plea in a video posted to Twitter on Monday, arguing that by winning back control of the legislature would allow Virginia to become the 38th and final state to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA).
“Did you know women don’t have equal rights in the U.S. constitution?” the Seinfeld star began. “Yeah. Incredible, isn’t it. But we can fix that by flipping Virginia’s state legislature on November 5th. If we flip two seats in each chamber, we can become the 38th and final state to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment.”

Women don’t have equal rights in the US Constitution? That’s insane! If we can flip just 4 seats in Virginia, we can FINALLY ratify the Equal Rights Amendment to the US Constitution!
