Shirley Phelps-Roper is a member and former co-leader of the infamous Westboro Baptist Church and a daughter of the late Fred Phelps. She is heavily regarded as one of (if not the) most hated female figures in America, due to her severe intolerance, homophobic views, and anti-military stances. Heck, she's even hated by Fox News.

Shirley was one of the key characters in the Louis Theroux documentary America's Most Hated Family, which was filmed before her daughters Grace and Megan were excommunicated from the cult.

In terms of picketing, she often leads several-weekly pickets, usually at sites such as "more Liberal" churches, celebrity awards ceremonies, military funerals, universities and even the annual Super Bowl (*Source cannot be placed because the URL is blocked by the spam folder).
