Conservative activist Phyllis Schlafly to visit Utah

MURRAY — Conservative activist Phyllis Schlafly, known for leading national opposition to feminism and the Equal Rights Amendment, is coming to Utah on Saturday to address the Utah Eagle Forum Convention and to hold a fundraiser for U.S. Senate candidate Cherilyn Eagar.

The fundraiser reception for Eagar is scheduled from 5 to 6 p.m. at the Rhodes Bake-n-Serve corporate headquarters, 5121 Murray Blvd. Schlafly is expected to speak briefly there before attending a dinner at the Eagle Forum Convention, a daylong event at the Larry H. Miller Campus of Salt Lake Community College in Sandy.

"Because of Phyllis' leadership, thousands of women rallied to protect women and the traditional family from a federal power grab" during fights over the Equal Rights Amendment in the 1970s, Eagar said of Schlafly, 85, founder of the National Eagle Forum.

"I deeply admire the strength, courage and class of this lady, who has done more to protect women, children and the family than any other woman in my lifetime," Eagar said. "At age 85, she's still going strong as ever."

Dear Eagleforum,
Rep. Earl Blumenauer, D-OR, introduced a bill that would establish a federal tax on vehicle miles traveled, or VMT. The bill, HR3311, does not specify what would happen to the fuel tax if a VMT program were established. Please help get the word out.
Thank You,
Jim Moulton
