Phyllis Schlafly on the Equal Rights Amendment | Phil Donahue Show 1974
One of Phyllis Schlafly's most well-known and quoted television appearances was on the Donahue Show in 1974. She fielded questions from the crowd and took praise and criticism alike for over an hour, defending her positions soundly with a smile the whole time. As the battle against ERA and radical anti-family forces continues, there's no better time than now to see and learn from Phyllis's timeless techniques and still-timely arguments in defense of America's women.

She was a smart lady. Due to her efforts, the ERA was stopped, even though TPTB were all behind it, and everyone said it was impossible to stop.
I recall the press trying to make her look like a loony toony but she was very logical and smart.
During WWII, she worked the night shift for the war effort, got off her shift and went to classes at Washington U. in St. Louis. She got a law degree—and she didn’t need an ERA or help/protection from Uncle Sam to do it.
