Photo of the Day

On March 22, 1979, Phyllis and hundreds of allies celebrated the expiration of the seven-year deadline of the Equal Rights Amendment. The festivities were interrupted when someone called the hotel to say a bomb had been placed under Phyllis’s podium. In her diary for that day, Phyllis casually wrote “Gala Dinner celebrating the End of the Equal Rights Amendment at the Shoreham Americana Ballroom. Speeches, Follies, Bomb Scare.”
