September 5, 2016 (San Diego) Phyllis Schlafly passed today in Missouri according to reporting from the CBS local station. She founded the extremely conservative Eagle Forum which has about 80,000 members. It is a conservative pro family forum that among other things opposed the Equal Rights Amendment. Her influence in conservative politics could be felt even today. Her role in preventing the ERA becoming law is well established.

She was president of the Eagle Forum to this day and the forum posted this on their Facebook Page.

Today, Phyllis Schlafly passed away in the presence of her family at her home in St. Louis, Missouri.

An iconic American leader whose love for America was surpassed only by her love of God and her family, Phyllis Schlafly, an indomitable pro-family grassroots advocate and organizer, was 92 years old. Mrs. Schlafly was preceded in death by her beloved husband Fred and is survived by six children along with 16 grand and 3 great grandchildren.

Phyllis Schlafly spent an astounding 70 years in public service of her fellow Americans. Her focus from her earliest days until her final ones was protecting the family, which she understood as the building block of life. She recognized America as the greatest political embodiment of those values. From military superiority and defense to immigration and trade; from unborn life to the nuclear family and parenthood, Phyllis Schlafly was a courageous and articulate voice for common sense and traditional values. She authored 27 books and thousands of articles. She spoke tens of thousands of times across the United States.

Her joy in life was evident to all through her smile and wit. Funeral arrangements are pending.

Her place in history is certainly assured, whether you agree with her politics or not. What is clear is that she was opposed to the feminist movement and other social justice agendas.
