Noted conservative activist and author Phyllis Schlafly will speak at Mount Holyoke College in Hooker Auditorium Thursday, April 26, at 8pm.
Schlafly is famous for leading the pro-family movement victory over the Equal Rights Amendment by creating the national organization STOP (Stop Taking Our Privilege) ERA in the 1970s. Schlafly's talk at Mount Holyoke, "Feminism vs. Conservatism: The Great Debate," will happen just a week after the Supreme Court's first anti-abortion decision.
Schlafly is the author or editor of 20 books. She is a lawyer and has served as a member of the Commission on the Bicentennial of the U.S. Constitution, 1985-1991, appointed by President Reagan. She has testified before more than 50 congressional and state legislative committees on constitutional, national defense, and family issues. The mother of six children, she was the 1992 Illinois Mother of the Year.
The Mount Holyoke College Republicans are proud to bring this conservative speaker to campus and invite the public to attend and participate in this diverse discussion regarding feminism and conservatism.
