Bridgeport Post, The (Newspaper) - June 18, 1970, Bridgeport, Connecticut THE BRIDGEPORT POST, THURSDAY, JUNE 18, 1970. FORTY-SEVEN Says Women 'Pictured M Liberation Group Hears Advertisements Hit are pictured as addlebrained by intently listen- ing to men appearing from wash-, ing machines, soapsuds and toilet bowls, and are told to 'be our- selves' in commercials promoting padded bras, eye make-up, and hair coloring said Diana Wallers, a housewife and mother, at a panel discussion last night at a meeting of the Fair- field County Women's Liberation conducted in the auditorium of Bedford junior high school. "Advertisements aimed at the female market picture a stereo- typed housewife as being attrac- tive and scheming, with low Mrs. Walters stated, in her discussion on "The Art cf Being a Woman." Other Toplej 1 Other topics which concerned the meeting were capitalism and the female employe, civil rights the female, and the impact of Ihe women's movement. "In the field of communica- Mrs. Wallers noted, "wom- en are constantly through the commercials that flood them daily. 'You've come a long way, Baby' is a theme employed by one commercial which implies that we have been released from our gilded cage, long skirts and from sneaking smoke behind the back she noted, "yet they remind us of our place by calling us Baby. Mrs. Walters also noted that commercials "pitch" women as having "different thus requiring the need of a "differ- ent" deodorant, a feminine hy- giene spray and preparations which free them from their house- work so that they can have coffee with the girls. "We are shown to be frantic objects and fanatical mothers who must maintain a germproof house and take care of our chil- dren she continued, "and their exploiting of the youth market makes it almost impos- sible for any woman to grow old gracefully." She concluded by stating thai It is time for the housewife to dispel! these false stereotypes and redefine their role wilh the credit due. Image Change Urged "It is very important to change our she said, "for our children are receiving a distorted image of i woman and her role in society." Adele Liskov. a senior phil osophy major at the University ot Bridgeport, related to the more than 75 women assembled for the meeting that social oppression of the woman has dirccl economic basis. Modern Industry, by nalure, draw women into their work force, thus creating and maintain- ing discrimination with an un- equal payscale and lack of job advancement. "This discrimination has an Initial purpose the profit mo- tive." Adele pointed out that women, which comprise over one-half of the population of Ihe United States, only make up one-third of the work force, and that the jobs they are employed in are coun- terpart to Ihe housewife image. "The majority of women em- ployed work as teachers, secre- taries or she said, "and they are excluded from manager, ial positions and on-the-job train- Ing programs." "Women comprise 40 per cent n( all teachers in the United States and 22 per cent of the col- lege faculty, which is excellent %vhen you consider that fl col- lege entrance board will only ac- cept women in the top one-fourth of their high school class, yel ac- cept men in the lop one-fifth." Adele also pointed out that eight per cent of employes in the field of science are women, per cent are doctors, 3 per cent lawyers and 3 per cent engin- eers. "Capitalism and women's op- pression also manifests ilself dur- ing a she said, "foi during a recession Ihe hiring o: women is up, and women working tw part-time basis often have all fringe benefits deleted. IM4 Study Cited "A study of manpower em ployed during 1924 shows thai working women were single with tin average age of 24. The same study in 1970 shows that today's female employe is married, 3? years old, and have children o school age, yel working mothers wilh young children are under a handicap since only two per cen of the children are in Day Care Centers. "Both union and non-union fc male employes should organize to get the issues of equal anj specific rights within their organ she said, "including such issues as free day care cen lers, open hiring, free advertis ing of job positions, birth con trol and abortion laws." She concluded by quoting a pamplet published by the U.S Department of Labor. "The Un from discriminating practices in regards to race, color, religion, sex and she said, "and anyone believing that they have been discriminated against for any of those reajonj may file a claim, without being named, with the Commission on Human Rights." She also pointed out that under the law those employed by the state, city and education field are exempt. "This is gross 'discrimination in the educational she said, "for 42 per cent of air high school teachers are women, yet per cent of all high school principals are men. "If we are to become equal we must aspire to improve the na- tion and exact social justices." Suzanne Benton, t member of the National Organization of Women of Western Connecticut stated that the impact of the women's movement has re- sulted in a list of priorities to be worked upon politically by women. Listed are: Ihe right of women to control their reproductive lives; seeing that the equal rights amendment is passed through the U.S. Senate and House of Re- presentatives; revise lax laws to include the cost of the care of children of working mothers to be deducted; set up child care centers; and stress equal educa- priorjties can be lion. "These she stressed, f for 53 per cent of all registered voters are women." On the subject of female libera- tion Suzanne pointed out that liberation may be a new term ap- plied to the movement, but it places all women in one category, that of sisterhood. "A man has all the power and a glory in today's she said, "and a woman must settle for her husband, or. boyfriend, dishes, laundry and the toilet bowl. "Yet the woman has political power, power Hut can change laws and efcact better she and when stated factually, the woman'has the poli- tical power not to send pe.ople off to wars." Suzanne told the men and women at the meeting that in Connecticut they have the power to change laws. Laws listed as needing revised were the maximum 48 hour work week, which hinders women with children of obtaining a job; the right to work up until four weeks before giving birth, and the right to return four weeks after birth; paid maternity benefits; the re- vising of the public accommoda- tions act, which makes it legal to discriminate 'sex; the right of women serving jury duty to place children in Day Care centers and be reimbursed by the state; and repeal of abortion laws. The meeting IMS concluded with a question and answer ses- sion. Bassick Graduates Urged To Help Ease 'Distrust' Stacie Linardakis, valedictorian for the class of 1S7 seniors gradu- ating from Bassick high school last night in Klein Memorial auditorium, warned the students, parents and friends that "the population has a feeling that things just are not working." The internal danger represented by this disillusionment and dis- trust with the course of events in America. Stacie said, is "not mited to radicals." Miss Linardikis exhorted the lass to work for relief of this irobtem, stating that "we must lake the changes, and in this ounlry we have ample opportu- ily to do so." Salutatorian De- Celia concurred, while lird prize speaker Dolores Kwial- oski called upon fellow pupils slrive for individuality.
