The late Phyllis Schlafly (1924-2016) authored and edited 27 books and was recognized as a prominent leader of the conservative movement in America after the publication of her best-selling 1964 book, A Choice Not an Echo. She became a leading pro-family advocate with the founding of her national volunteer organization, Eagle Forum, in 1972. Her relentless efforts over ten years helped defeat the Equal Rights Amendment, which was a major victory over the radical feminism of the 1960s and 70s. Mrs. Schlafly was a lawyer and was appointed by President Reagan to serve on the Commission on the Bicentennial of the U.S. Constitution, from 1985-1991. She testified before numerous Congressional and state legislative committees on Constitutional, national defense and family issues. Mrs. Schlafly received her J.D. from Washington University Law School and her Master’s in political science from Harvard University. In 2008, Washington University in St. Louis awarded her an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters. Phyllis died in 2016 and is survived by her six children.
