Hosts Lizz Winstead, Moji Alawode-El, and Molly Gaebedon 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!”
For Friday, May 15th — Pour yourself a Harvey Bible-Banger and make sure you’re caught up through episode #6 of Mrs. America. Our special guest this week is brilliant author, journalist, and CNN contributor Joan Walsh! This week we’re supposed to *gulp* sympathize with a Republican woman who *legit surprise face* actually believes in abortion rights! You know we’ll have a lot to say!
*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”.
