It is 1978 at the University of New Mexico. Students are preparing for an ERA / Women's Rights Rally, filling envelopes for a mass mailing. The students tell the stories of the feminists in their families while Schlafly, across the stage, quotes from her anti-feminists writings. The juxtaposition creates a comical tension between 'real life' and 'white, conservative America' on steroids.

    I love the juxtaposition of Schlafly's comments and the students stories as they stuffed envelopes. Also, Lisa's great grandmother sounds incredible! A great piece that shows how the personal stories passed down to us are what motivates us to make a change.
