Phyllis Schlafly has politically outlived her opposition from the ERA days and now finds herself the aim of criticism due to her remarks about unmarried women:

“Unmarried women, 70% of unmarried women, voted for Obama, and this is because when you kick your husband out, you’ve got to have big brother government to be your provider.”


I’ve long pointed out the irony of claiming the feminist mantle while promoting policies that make you dependent upon The Man.

Of course, the libs are silent on this:

Alle Bautsch, Failed by Feminists

The Attack on Women in Health Control Rationing

The Hypocrisy of the Women’s Media Center

A Profile in True Feminism

They criticize because Schlafly hits too close to home.

*From RS McCain, though I disagree with him about right-sphere conservatism because popularly-defined feminism isn’t about liberating women from the patriarchy but about beholding them to a political party whose policies clearly impact women negatively, as highlighted by one of my links above. Right-thinking feminism is liberation of women from that.

And yes, any GOPer who throws Schlafly under the bus deserves a slap to the face. I had the privilege of taking part in a documentary about women on the right, currently in production, with Mrs. Schlafly and featuring some other ladies with names as big as hers.
