Transcript Jage 2 BROADSIDE February 1973 SIMULTANEOUS DISCHARGE OF ALL THE GUNS ON ONE SIDE OF A WARSHIP . . . ANY STRONG OR COMPREHENSIVE ATTACK, AS BY CRITICISM ... A SONG, CHIEFLY IN 16TH- AND 17TH-CENTURY ENGLAND, WRITTEN ON A TOPICAL SUBJECT, PRINTED ON BROADSIDES, AND SUNG IN PUBLIC .... BY A PROFESSIONAL BALLADEER . THE RANDOM HOUSE DICTIONARY OF THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE, UNABRIDGED EDITION Comment If the Equal Legal Rights amendment has not been ratified by July of this year, there is a very real possibility that ratification may fail. Ugly words for the ears of any feminist who has worked long and hard to push for ratification. Yet this tragedy may well occur as a result of well-organized opposition to the amendment. The champion of the anti-ERA forces: a well- scrubbed conservative writer from the Mississippi River town of Alton, 111., Phyllis Schlafly. A prominent right-wing voice in the Midwest, Schlafly has mobilized opposition by charging that the amendment would do nothing less than destroy family life with its potential effect on child support, alimony and labor laws. At the bottom, however, Schlafly's message was mainly that she liked things the way they were. Schlafly's efforts now range far beyond Illinois. She has mobilized chapters of her national "Stop ERA Committee" in several states and sympathetic groups with such acron- ymic names as HOW (Happines of Women) and AWARE (American Women are Richly Endowed) have sprung up along her path. In the coming year, she vows that her campaign will be mounted in "every dignified way possible" in target states like Arizona, Ohio, Missouri, Illinois and Virginia. Although the situation appeared hopeful immediately after adoption of the amendment last spring, (within 48 hours legislators in six states ratified it) momentum has begun to slow. Fourteen states ratified the amendment by June 21. However, knowledgeable political sources count on fewer than ten legislatures certain to approve the amendment at this time. We need sixteen. Ann Scott, vice president of NOW does feel hopeful that the amendment can be ratified, yet not without a very real struggle. The battle is not over. Although Texas was among the first to ratify the amendment, we must not forget our sisters throughout the nation.
