Phyllis: The Schlaftershow Episode 3

Hosts Lizz WinsteadMoji 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 May 7th is former Missouri State Rep Stacey Newman. She served the city that the Schlafmonster lived so who better to talk about the political landscape the Phyllis hath wrought?

*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”.
