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.

Remove Phyllis Schlafly from makers.com

Makers.com is supposed to be devoted to women who brought about positive change for women in this country since the mid-sixties. Phyllis Schlafly was not a groundbreaker for women. She fought tooth and nail for decades, and continues to do so, to stop any advances for women. Some even credit her with stopping ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA).
