Phyllis Schlafly: Feminists Are "Insanely Jealous" Of Men

Phyllis Schlafly, who spearheaded efforts against the Equal Rights Amendment in 1973, brought her anti-feminist perspective to a class at The Citadel. She stated that feminism, like liberalism, should be treated as a "bad word" because "everything [feminists] stand for is bad and destructive." A longtime proponent of the view that a woman's place is in the kitchen, Schlafly stated that feminists want to "abolish" the role of stay-at-home mothers because they're "insanely jealous" of men, who have a wife at home cooking dinner and raising children. Schlafly reveals a profound misunderstanding of feminism, which is about expanding women's choices, not telling them whether or not they should be at home. She also ignores the fact that many women can't afford to stay home. Schlafly advises the cadets not to date feminists regardless of how pretty they are and to ask women how they feel about Phyllis Schlafly to detect whether they're feminists.
