Rep. Bachmann: Phyllis Schlafly the “Most Important Woman”

At a Tea Party event with the conservative Eagle Forum in July, Rep. Michele Bachmann said that Forum founder Phyllis Schlafly was the “most important woman in the United States in the last one hundred years.” Bachmann failed to mention that Schlafly said that working mothers pursue “false hopes and fading illusions,” “women in combat are a hazard to other people around them” and by getting married, women agreed to have sex and thus “cannot be raped.”
