Biographical and Professional Information

Phyllis Schlafly, a homemaker turned political activist, is a leading spokeswoman for the conservative viewpoint on issues such as women's rights, national defense, education, the law, and politics. Schlafly's organizational techniques and outspoken personal leadership are often cited as primary reasons for the defeat of the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) in 1982. A tireless worker known for her unflappable demeanor, Schlafly is "one of the best loved and the most loathed women in the country," according to New York Review of Books contributor Frances FitzGerald. Supporters and detractors alike concede, however, that Schlafly is enormously successful at galvanizing support and influencing public policy.
