Illinois remains a battleground over women's rights.

Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of  sex.

Progressive women's rights activists rallied in Springfield Tuesday. The organizers say over 100 groups were represented from across the state. Jennifer Camille Lee is co-president of Action Illinois and co-leader of a local group called Women Rising.  She co-chaired the "Illinois Women March on Springfield" event.


The outspoken conservative activist Phyllis Schlafly has passed away.  She was 92 and died at her home in St Louis Monday.
