The Equal Rights Amendment - why hasn't it passed? • 

 
Can someone explain, please, why the Equal Rights Amendment has still not passed?
Here it is:

S.J.RES.7
Title: A joint resolution proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the United States relative to equal rights for men and women.
Sponsor: Sen Kennedy, Edward M. [MA] (introduced 3/15/2005) Cosponsors (17)
Related Bills: H.J.RES.37
Latest Major Action: 3/15/2005 Referred to Senate committee. Status: Read twice and referred to the Committee on the Judiciary.

SECTION 1. Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.
SECTION 2. The Congress shall have the power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article.
SECTION 3. This amendment shall take effect two years after the date of ratification.

That's it. Now, what's the problem?
