Good Riddance, Phyllis Schlafly

Phyllis Schlafly passed away today.

I normally don’t say this about someone who has just died, but good riddance.

During the height of the second wave of the feminist movement in the 1970’s Mrs. Schlafly fought against feminism and the equal rights amendment. It has yet to be passed to this day. For every right and achievement that American women have made since the 1970’s, we have setbacks. This is partially due to Mrs. Schlafly and her ilk.

Women should not be fighting against one another. When one woman wins the right to true and complete equality, we all win. When we deny the rights of our fellow women, we all lose. It’s time to stop fighting each other.

Good riddance, Phyllis Schlafly.
