National LGBTQ Task Force Responds to Passing of Equality Opponent Phyllis Schlafly

Washington, DC, September 6, 2016–Phyllis Schlafly, an anti-feminist and opponent of equality who worked to defeat the Equal Rights Amendment, passed away this week. In response, the National LGBTQ Task Force released the following statement:

“Phyllis Schlafly’s legacy will be one of trying to inflict as much damage as possible on millions of women, immigrants, the LGBTQ community, people of color and families over decades. She was against some the fundamental pillars of freedom, justice and equality — from feminism to abortion to marriage equality. Her political legacy and views will not stand the test of time for what is good, kind and decent,” said Rea Carey, Executive Director, National LGBTQ Task Force.
