In the 1970s, Phyllis Schlafly led the fight against the Equal Rights Amendment, which would have given women equal rights to men. She endorsed Donald Trump for president shortly before her death on Sept. 5, 2016.
Starting in the 1970s, women were a major part of the work force and began to demand equal rights and wages. In 1972, the ERA passed Congress, but it needed to be passed by the states. Schlafly organized opposition, resulting in a delay, but it did not stop progress for women.
Credits: She Derailed the Fight for Equal Rights for Women
