    So she is campaigning against feminism yet profiting off that very movement? She may have thanked her husband for "allowing" her to speak at those events, but the fact that she was asked to speak at them at all was beyond her. Who was keeping her home? Who was raising her children? Who was actually maintaining that traditional household and family while she traveled around, using rights she campaigned against and getting law degrees? The hypocrisy is mind blowing.

    It's ironic that she was known for her career and celebrity rather than living a life consistent with practicing what she preached. Who was taking care of her children when she traveled around the countryside and preached that only mothers should take care of their children?

    Phyllis Schlafly was a female impersonator.

    It’s strange that she and Margaret Atwood attended Harvard at the same time.

    On the contrary, she had achieved things in her life that every feminist had been seeking that time !

    She certainly didn’t stay home!! She just destroyed a lot of women, some of whom were deserted by husbands, left to raise children alone at jobs below men’s earnings. I am sure she was well paid by Conservatives, including Trump. How about all the men who were rapists but never had to pay the price for their crimes- - (Me Too Movement) . We women should be out there marching and making sure every candidate who gets elected is for the ERA amendment to our Constitution. It is incomprehensible that it is not automatically in the Constitution!!!

    She was not and is not a hero. She was against everything I stand for. Women DESERVED equal rights and we fought to get them. She wanted to go back to the 40’s and 50’s when women were subjugated by men. I do NOT ever want to go back to that time.

    Speaking against female empowerment as she went on to bag a law degree😂😂😂. Her reasoning is laughable..
