Phyllis Schlafly (right) and Gladys O'Donnell were opposing candidates for the presidency of the National Federation of Republican Women. O'Donnell, a strong supporter of the ERA, was elected at the NFRW convention in Chicago in 1967. The Republican Party had endorsed the ERA in their quadrennial conventions since 1940, four years longer than the Democrats.
