Conservative activist Phyllis Schlafly, who helped defeat the Equal Rights Amendment in the 1970s, died Monday at her home in St. Louis after what her daughter said was a long battle with cancer. She was 92. Schlafly was known for her leadership in grassroots campaigns opposing everything from Communism to abortion. She also founded the Eagle Forum, an ultraconservative political group, in 1975. She championed traditional, stay-at-home roles for women, drawing harsh criticism from feminists. Betty Friedan, a feminist leader who debated her over the ERA, compared Schlafly to a religious heretic.
