Hosts Lizz Winstead, Moji Alawode-El, and Molly Gaebe don their 1970s apparel and spill the tea on Phyllis Schlafly, the woman who saw the arc of history bending toward justice and said “hell no, not on my watch!”
Our special guest on April 24th is Rev. Irene Monroe, a speaker, theologian, syndicated columnist, and an expert on racism, sexism, and anti-LGBTQ discrimination. She ALSO grew up in Rep. Shirley Chisholm’s district and knew her!
*Mrs. America tells the story of the movement to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA), and the unexpected backlash led by Phyllis Schlafly, hailed by supporters as “the sweetheart of the silent majority” and by us as “America’s yeast infection”.
