Norwich Evening Sun (Newspaper) - August 25, 1970, Norwich, New York Feminine militant on March or rampage ? for Equality by Helen Hennessy new York Nea a the right of citizens of the United states to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United states or by any state on account of sex. So reads the 19th amendment to the Constitution of the United states which became Law in August 50 years ago. Active in the Days before we were permitted to trip to the ballot Box Only the National woman suffrage association admitted that the heart of the question was Domestic and not political that woman a place in the family unit made Equality with the male impossible. The others believed the vote would be the answer. A Sage critic of women a suffrage at that time came up with some Good advice that went unheeded. A if getting the vote will get you everything you want a he said a Why done to men have everything they want they be always had the according t o historians the female vote accomplished nothing but Token recognition. And after world War i women just sort of liberated themselves on an individual basis. Complacency became a Way of life and feminism As a movement died a quiet death but you can to keep a militant Gal Down forever. And so Here we go again marching singing taking Over ladies Magazine offices calling for female strikes invading formerly All male saloons and making the front pages in an Effort to finish the Job the Early suffragists started.

For every Betty Friedan Gloria Steinem Kaye Millett and Shulamith Firestone of today there was a Susan b. Anthony Jane Addams Ellen key and Alice Paul. Way Back then Ellen key a prominent Suffragette proclaimed that women were special because they could have babies motherhood was More important than marriage and so having illegitimate children was quite o k. Alice Paul who helped organize working women into Trade unions went to England where the incredible Pankhurst Mother and daughter team were in their heyday. She came Back Here in 1912, a woman the current Radical feminists would embrace. She was a specialist in such tactics As demonstrations protests arson Betty Friedan founder of now National organization of woman holds Equality for woman buttons at Tho fourth annual convention of Tho group. It made interesting Reading. But it was a Best seller for Only a Short time. The generations of women who battled marched picketed and demanded its passing soon found that the right to vote was not at All the same thing As a equal they wanted Equality with men and getting the vote did no to do the trick. Of All the women a groups a plug for manhood Day editors note or. Coll Norwich Mother of five has written several articles for the evening Sun in Hor opposition to the women s liberation movement in this article she champions an Quot Honor manhood Quot Day to combot the feminine militants led by Betty Friedan founder of the National women s organisation now.

Ally started picking up momentum. I have received several letters and phone Calls from women who want to stay feminine and Are willing to stand up and show it. One of the letters came from mrs. Vivian Phoenix assistant editor of the weekly in Hamilton . She enclosed an article she wrote August 20th condemning women a lib in her column a the cinder boxy.

At 105 Crandall Street so we can begin final plans for the Celebration. Sabotage the Pankhurst devotees in England had even mutilated Art and physically attacked Cabinet members in their quest for a equal rights Quot so much for our gentle ladies of old past and present the feminist movement has had its radicals and its thinkers it is generally agreed that women have the right to expect equal for equal jobs and to be considered solely on a qualification basis for employment yet these demands Arent new they were part of the original package too today a movement wants Day care centers on the Job the same demand was voiced by the angry ladies of the 1870s they too wanted child nurseries established by employers to free mothers to work even burning bras As a Symbol of no More Vive la difference had some roots in the first suffrage movement. It was claimed in the 19th Century that fashion conspired to relegate women to the ethereal bustles corsets and Street sweeping skirts prevented All but the Stout hearted to attempt to enter the vigorous working world of men Well the show is on the Road again and we wait to see How effective it will be the second time around.
