Another strange Mrs. America review

The TV series Mrs. America has brought some strange commentary, such as this review:
Fundamentalist Christianity in America is, by default, misogynist, cisheteronormative, and white supremacist, and its rise as a political force in the United States began in the 1970s, with Phyllis Schlafly as one of its most famous faces.
No, Phyllis Schlafly was a Catholic, and not a Fundamentalist Christian.
I had absolutely no desire whatsoever to see this person humanized or excused or forgiven. These fears were quickly put to rest. This is no sympathetic portrait, ...

There’s a scene in the first episode in which she goes to his office to get his signature on *checks notes* a credit-card application. By law, she cannot apply for a credit card without the permission of her husband.

No, there was no such law. The scene is fiction.
