Phyllis Schlafly Still Championing The Anti-Feminist Fight

She's a lawyer, author, mother of six and a icon of the country's anti-feminist movement. Phyllis Schlafly is best known for her successful 1973 campaign to stop the passage of the Equal Rights Amendment. For decades, she has stuck by her beliefs that a woman's place is in the kitchen. She's been named one of the 100 most important women of the 20th century by Ladies Home Journal. As part of Tell Me More's focus on Women's History Month, host Michel Martin speaks to the 86-year-old conservative activist about her life and career. (NPR News)

To characterize Schlafly's beliefs as "a woman's place is in the kitchen" is grossly unfair. She is a firm advocate of the rights of women to be who they want to be, and has lived a life that proves it.

She simply cautions us all that men and women are inherently different, and that those differences lend themselves to complementary roles.
