I believe one of the reasons the proponents of the ERA have never been successful in its passage is that instead of uniting women, it divides them. Those pushing for the ERA were unable to gain the support of MANY women who recognize the dangers of this amendment. I am so grateful for Phyliss Schlafly's courage to speak out in the midst of so much opposition. Those who understand our true roles as women need to follow the example she left us.

Thank you for this article. I well remember the painful division in this country caused by the ERA and even division in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints when the prophet and other church leaders came out in opposition to this seriously flawed proposed legislation. We can never let our guard down.

During a senate sub-committee hearing in 1983, Senator Orrin Hatch of Utah learned from the supporters of the ERA that they wanted to deny tax exempt status to any church opposed to abortion and ordaining women, require public restrooms to be unisex and be shared by males and females, and require that showers in public schools be unisex and be shared by males and females. The real purpose of the ERA was to destroy Biblical family values.
