Mrs. America is a 9-part docudrama about Phyllis Schlafly which aired on the Hulu network starting April 15, 2020, and in July in England. Starring Cate Blanchett as Phyllis Schlafly, it has been nominated for 10 Emmys.

Its acting is superb, but its script is more stereotypical than factual. Its theme is that Phyllis was trying to succeed in a man's world and did not realize how it was discriminating against her too. Cate Blanchett portrays Phyllis as powerful but cold and condescending, unlike the real Phyllis.

While pretending to be factual, the script has a role for entirely fictional character named "Alice", portrayed as a (non-existent) best friend of Phyllis.[1] The role of Alice is to recite false statements designed to improperly create an impression that Phyllis said or agreed with the falsehoods, when she did not.

The miniseries oddly portrays Phyllis as wearing only a wedding band, rather than also wearing an engagement ring as Phyllis always wore and most traditional women have.

Hollywood's fake news also creates an imaginary "Pamela", who is supposedly a young, naive housewife who was an early supporter of Phyllis Schlafly's STOP ERA effort.

Fictional interaction between the characters portraying Phyllis and her husband Fred falsely disparages him.

Ironically, despite the fauxumentary being intended to demonize Phyllis Schlafly as propaganda for the pro-ERA crowd, many leftists upon seeing the trailer and her speeches supplied in the trailer came out as agreeing with Phyllis Schlafly regarding why the ERA should not be passed.[2]
