Say, do you like fun? I know I don’t! That is why I am not at tonight’s fun event for ladies, the Roe on the Rocks benefit, starring the incomparable Sara Benincasa and oh, many and many a lovely band. HOWEVER. Let’s assume you’re a sad and lonely person who reads the Internet to get your kicks. In that case, we have much more in common! And may I present you with this article I wrote up, about the Phyllis Schlafly?
As far as careers go, a girl couldn’t wish for a better one than Phyllis Schlafly. Much sought-after public speaker; respected author, published many times over; powerful activist, who has changed the course of major legislation; a godmother, one could argue, to a huge movement of dedicated, vocal, professional women.
Seriously. I tried to write this without being pointlessly mean at all. Because, you know, not serving our points and whatnot. Which, since Schlafly is the woman who got Betty Friedan to tell her that she ought to be “burned at the stake,” was tough! Look at me, raising the bar. I… think? Although I do sort of blame her for Sarah Palin. Which is enough for any one person to live with, I would think.
