Andrew Schlafly, the son of Phyllis Schlafly, spoke out against this show through his website Conservapedia, labeling it as fake and nothing more than left wing propaganda. Not all of the program's critics are politically on the right, however: Gloria Steinem, played by Rose Byrne, called it "hopelessly wrong... factually, historically wrong", stating that it was mainly corporate lobbying which slowed the ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment.

Very interesting time capsule (and kickass 70's soundtrack) that is more sympathetic to Phyllis Schlafly than I expected.
She was a savvy and determined woman; no matter your politics, the Schlafly family is remarkable and accomplished. Fantastic irony that the feminist movement she loathed was the very vehicle that gave her a voice.
Completely disagree with her politics and beliefs; but, credit where credit is due - she was a fighter and a worthy opponent.
