Kazlekas NEW YORK (AP) — On the 54th anniversary of women’s suffrage, pioneer women’s liberation leaders say the movement has gone from the barricades to the boardrooms and nothing can stop it now “The movement has gone farther than any of us ever dreamed and there is no going back It is wonderful to be part of a revolution that will be won,” said Betty Friedan, founder of the National Organization for Women “The women’s movement has matured. We’re dealing with real issues that the power structure has to take seriously. We’re going to change history and the globe,” said Robin Morgan, a founder of the New York Radical Women “It has been the best and most profound revolution that has ever happened,” said Susan Brownmiller, who helped organize the New York Radical Feminists. President Gerald Ford proclaimed Monday. Aug 26, Women’s Equality day. The 19th Amendment, which gave women the right to vote, was passed on that date in 1920 after a long, often bitter campaign by women’s suffrage leaders courtesy nile in front of her nome, says she Ihnp. s or r. lo a1 changes in job opportunities for women Shed bkt to „,ere par. lime jabs a,al starred work hours far warner, with children and educational sabbaticals to retrain woim who want to re-enter the labor market. She wants the status of housework raised so ii will be a job with tax benefits, pension plans and social security icrie-fits. She endorses paternity leaves so more fathers can share in the rearing of children “We need a whole New Deal I hope rimlands that 35 million working women are not tfoinn to un home. Thai second paycheck is a vital necessity for so many families,” said Friedan. Robin Morgan helped organize the first major ‘temon- stratum of the women’s movement: the picketing of the Miss America pageant in Atlantic City in I9H8 to protest what she calls exploitation of women as sex objects President Ford un Astonishing Growth Pauseless Campaigns “To get that word. ‘male,’ out of the Constitution cost the women of this country 52 years of pauseless campaigns,” ( arrie Chapman (’att, a pioneer suffragist who died in 1947, once said The modern-day campaign for equality in other areas of American life has been active for about IO years. Betty Friedan’s book. “The Feminine Mystique”, published in 1964. is often credited for stirring the second wave of feminism. Friedan, Brownmiller, Morgan and other women’s liberation leaders say that in the early days of the movement they were jeered at as “bra-burners” and “women’s lib” was always good for a laugh. “The first stage of the sex role revolution was to assert our equality and break down the feminine mystique.” Friedan said “We had to confront sex discrimination at all levels of society. Now, we must restructure all those institutions that have been polarized according to sex roles, and men and women must work together ” The National Organization for Women, founded in 1966. now has more than 40,(MMI members in 700 chapters. Friedan also founded the National Women’s Political Caucus and recently startl'd the Economic Think X^nk for women. She feels that the economic problems facing the nation cannot be solved without considering women’s rising expectations. Friedan, who like the other feminist leaders prefers no “Over the years we’ve made a shift from the sensational tactics of the ’60s to the depth and profundity of an emerging feminist philosophy. The growth of the movement has been astonishing.” Morgan, 33. has been most impressed by the buildup of alternative feminist structures at the grass roots level in the community. “Institutions controlled by women and servicing women are spreading. There are self-help medical centers, credit unions, legal offices, feminist colleges, rape crisis centers Women are concerned with the realities of survival and self- determination.” Morgan is a poet, with a second book of poems soon to be published. She also edited an anthology of feminist writings called “Sisterhood Is Powerful” “I think the stereotype of the radical feminist has changed.” Morgan said recently. "The movement has grown to include all women: Chicano, blick. Navajo, grandmothers. Hach woman comes in at her own time, her own level and rate There are no lost women.” Morgan cautions women not to become complacent. “There is still much that has to be done, and who knows, we may have to hit the streets again As long as men still hold the power in government, education, money, it is still an uphill fight. Ifs not asking for a piece of the pie. Ifs a matter of changing the whole pie.” Susan Brownmiller was involved in the takeover of the offices of the Ladies Home Journal in 1976 After a day-long siege, the Journal agreed to give a women’s writing collective $10.(MMI and several pages of the magazine for their views Critical Issue AP Wirephoto Monday marks 54 years since women got the right to vote and women's liberation leaders like Betty Friedan continue to urge the movement forward. Friedan founded the National Organization for Women.    ,    - For the last three years, Brownmiller. 39, has been working on a theoretical and historical book about rape, which she sees as the most critical issue facing women. “I have been so impressed by the real changes in individual women’s lives. Women are going to law school, women writers are writing about women. So many women have found the courage and capability in themselves to try so many new things It’s exciting to talk to women We’re where it’s at.” Brownmiller foresees tremendous changes in relations between men and women “I don't think we've changed men s heads yet. They’re more open intellectually, but we’re taking the power away from them and most men aren’t going to accept that graciously. “But there s no stopping the momentum of the movement. We’re past the age of the white male and all new social changes will come from us. We have nowhere lo go but up Ti-Grace Atkinson, radical theoretician of the movement, has just published an anthology of her writings called “Amazon Odyssey” “I think the first phase of the movement was a fantasy of rhetoric. But it never occurred for women to leave, for where would we go?” said Atkinson. 36. who was the first president of the New York Chapter of NOW before resigning to found The Feminists “We have to be both the surgeon and the patient. The patient can't be anesthetized and some aren't going to make it through the operation But we must continue to fight, survive. and never go home again ” The new president of the National Organization for Women. Karen de Crow. was also (inc of its earliest members. She is a lawyer and the author of “Young Woman’s Guide to Liberation’’ and “Sexist Justice”. “I’m very heartened by the progress of the movement There is no one. male or female, who has not been affected by the enormous changes of the last few years,” said de Crow . 36 To Report Drug Violation Telephone Michael Dooley 377-8081 “Radiant Splendor” ... for the Fall and Winter bride in fine, soft sata mist lovely slimming princess lines, lavishly enhanced with Venise lace In white or Ivory at $175 Bridal Gowns are $74 to $225 Attendant’s Gowns are $36 to $70 Resistor Now!
