Transcript VIEWS FROM PAT KUHLMANN, CONSCIOUSNESS RAISING CHAIR, PUBLICITY CHAIR, TEXAS NOW STATE COUNCIL DELEGATE, Phyllis asked me to submit an autobiographical sketch and said I could say anything I wanted - so here is an account of how wonderful I am. In looking back on my 42 years, I am trying to see where my feminism comes from. My parents, particularly my dad, always told my sister and me that we could accomplish anything we set out to do. I remember him saying, "Look where you're going and not where you've been!" Of course, he said it when we were in a park and I almost stepped in some dog poo, but that could still be an ongoing life lesson. I've tried to apply it that way. I have been a secretary (ten years, but don't tell anyone I can type), disc jockey, and cosmetic consultant/ distributor. After ending my business career, involuntarily, I went back to UH and secured a degree in TV Production which I have not yet used. In high school, I made my first protest. The new principal hired in my senior year immediately abolished a school tradition of gold tassels for the top 25% of the seniors &t graduation. I graduated 7th and had looked forward and worked hard to wear gold on that day. A group of us went to his office and vigorously protested, but to no avail. I've resented it to this day, but although I didn't know it then that was my first small step on the path of trying to change an unjust system. In the mid-60*s I heard that my secretary counterparts in other space contractor companies were making more than I was and initiated a survey, pressed my company to upgrade salaries and consequently got a raise. In 1968 I took a part- time job as a disc jockey. It was fun-I even got some fan mail-and it paid minimum wage! It didn't take long to figure out why the station went to a Think Pink format (gag) with all women DJ's-they could get away with paying 'mere' women basically nothing. Then the company was sold and the new owners immediately fired all of us saying that the public can't accept women's voices on the airwaves (!) Take that, Barbara, Jessica, Amanda, et al! Meanwhile, my roommate at that time opened my eyes to corporate sexism. She had worked for the same company I had for a longer time and at first I thought she was exaggerating, then I looked around realized she was right- it takes only two things to get ahead in big business and women aren't born with them.' I learned to put into new perspective the 'routine' verbal sexual harassment that I had always thought came with the territory of being a working woman, and learned to say not only no, but hell no, and still retain my integrity and my job.
