It is with great sadness that we announce Phyllis Schlafly, American constitutional lawyer, conservative activist, author, and speaker and founder of the Eagle Forum, passed away at age 92 on Monday.
Phyllis was active promoting conservative agenda until her passing. She wrote a weekly column for over 50 years. Schlafly released a book in August with co-authors Ed Martin and Bret Decker – The Conservative Case for Trump.
From her Eagle Forum bio page:
Phyllis Schlafly has been a national leader of the conservative movement since the publication of her best-selling 1964 book, A Choice Not An Echo. She has been a leader of the pro-family movement since 1972, when she started her national volunteer organization called Eagle Forum. In a ten-year battle, Mrs. Schlafly led the pro-family movement to victory over the principal legislative goal of the radical feminists, called the Equal Rights Amendment. An articulate and successful opponent of the radical feminist movement, she appears in debated on college campuses more frequently than any other conservative. She was named one of the 100 most important women of the 20th century by the Ladies’ Home Journal.
Mrs. Schlafly’s monthly newsletter called The Phyllis Schlafly Report is now in its 50th year. Her syndicated column appears in 100 newspapers, and on many conservative websites, her radio commentaries are heard daily on over 600 stations Radio commentaries may be listened to on the internet.
Phyllis Schlafly’s husband John passed away in 1993. She has six children: John, Bruce, Roger, Liza, Andrew, and Anne S. Cori.
In March Phyllis Schlafly endorsed Donald Trump for president at his rally at the Peabody Opera House in St. Louis. Phyllis Schlafly celebrated the Republican Convention and nomination of Donald Trump in a video she released on August 16th after her 92nd birthday.
Phyllis Schlafly was a great American original. As a mother, lawyer, activist, author, columnist and friend she was like no other. She will be deeply missed. We love you, Phyllis!
Please keep her family and friends in your prayers. The Eagle Forum issued a statement on Schlafly’s passing:

Donald Trump Released a Statement on Passing of His Friend and Supporter Phyllis Schlafly
Phyllis Schlafly is a conservative icon who led millions to action, reshaped the conservative movement, and fearlessly battled globalism and the ‘kingmakers’ on behalf of America’s workers and families. I was honored to spend time with her during this campaign as she waged one more great battle for national sovereignty.
I was able to speak with her by phone only a few weeks ago, and she sounded as resilient as ever. Our deepest prayers go out to her family and all her loved ones. She was a patriot, a champion for women, and a symbol of strength. She fought every day right to the end for America First.
Her legacy will live on in the movement she led and the millions she inspired.
– Donald J. Trump
