Phyllis Schlafly Named 3rd Most Powerful Conservative Woman

Via The Blaze:

The Clare Boothe Luce Policy Institute and Human Events have collaborated to bring us the Most Influential Conservative Women in America.
According to a letter from Alyssa Cordova, lecture director of  CBLPI, the organization decided to pull together this top 10 list to “promote mentors and women leaders from all walks of life who are committed to the constitutional principles of individual freedom, economic liberty, limited government, personal responsibility, and traditional values [...].”
Phyllis Schlafly: Schlafly is the founder and president of Eagle Forum and advocated against and rallied other women to defeat the Equal Rights Amendment in the 1970s. Rep. Steve King in his profile on Schlafly writes that she is “one of conservatism’s most successful grassroots activists.”
