PBS and AOL: Remove Phyllis Schlafly from makers.com

Makers.com’s website and film, which claims to feature women who brought about positive change for women in this country since the mid-sixties, includes Phyllis Schlafly as a “Groundbreaker.” Phyllis Schlafly was not and is not a groundbreaker for women. She fought tooth and nail for decades to stop any advances for women and continues to do so. Some even credit her with stopping ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA). Calling Schlafly a groundbreaker for women is like calling George Wallace a groundbreaker for civil rights.

      I didn't know this old crow was still alive! She single-handedly set Women's rights back a thousand years!

      This woman wanted to stop changes women needed/wanted. She was not a "maker".

      It is unfair to include Phyllis Schlafly form this documentary; she was anti-women's liberation and it clearly points out that she didn't want women to have opportunities and choices.

      To say Phyllis Schlafly was a “Groundbreaker is an insult to women that trying to fight for equality for all women. As stated, “ Phyllis Schlafly was not and is not a groundbreaker for women. She fought tooth and nail for decades to stop any advances for women and continues to do so."
