‘Mrs. America’ tries to paint Phyllis Schlafly as cold and unforgiving, but the conservative icon my grandmother and I knew was nothing of the sort.
On this episode of the The Federalist Radio Hour, Inez Feltscher Stepman and Emily Jashinsky talk feminism, Lana Del Ray, and Phyllis Schlafly.

My mother Phyllis Schlafly made quite a name for herself in the fight over the Equal Rights Amendment, but here are a few little-known facts about her.

Anne Schlafly Cori joins Emily Jashinsky to discuss Hulu’s forthcoming series ‘Mrs. America’ and the fight against the Equal Rights Amendment.
