Of course, not all women embraced the changes facing women in this post-war era. Many believed that something had been lost and that the Equal Rights Amendment threatened to further undermine the privileges and even character of womanhood. Phyllis Schlafly became a conservative icon by speaking out for these women in a 6977 article that rhetorically asked, "What's Wrong with 'Equal Rights' for Women"?

The expression on Bush's face as he sits there is odd indeed.

He didn 8767 t do that. And, consequently, it was entirely foreseeable that when a different president from a different party with a different point of view came along, he wouldn 8767 t move forward with it.
