Transcript cont'd. Equal Rights Amendment The most serious difference between the ERA passed by the House in the 91st session and the current House proposal is the seven seven year limitation within which the amendment must be ratified by 3/4ths of the states. Write your Senators and Representatives and ask that this seven year limitation be removed. LETTERS TO WRITE About the OFCC NOW is continuing its pressure on the Office of Federal Contract Compliance to require government contractors to develop affirmative action programs for recruiting, training, and promoting women. NOW is not satisfied with the snail's pace of OFCC on this. All members are urged to (l) seek the support of other organizations in pressuring the OFCC to move—AAUW, B&PW, WEAL, WOMEN'S LIBERATION, (2) write your Congressional representatives asking to request reports from OFCC on what they are doing on affirmative action programs on sex discrimination. For information contact: Ann Scott, 50 Willowbrook, Williamsville, N.Y. 14221. About the EEOC NOW is becoming increasingly unhappy with the lethargy of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in addressing the problems of sex discrimination within the EEOC. Members can contact Congressional representatives and ask them to inquire of the Commission what actions they are taking to ensure that women on the EEOC are represented in all levels of employment, what affirmative recruiting they are doing internally, etc. Contact: Aileen Hernandez, Room 342, 680 Beach Street, San Francisco, Ca. 94109. federal court rules for women The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit(San Francisco) held on January 11, 1971, that the issue of whether state hours of work restrictions on women but not on men violates the rights of women under the 14th amendment presents "a substantial constitutional question." The Court reversed the district court decision in a class action brought by Velma Mengelkoch, an electric assembler for North American Rockwell Corp. in Anaheim, California. The lower court had held in 1968 that women could not raise the issue of constitutionality of special working hours restrictions on women because the U.S. Supreme Court had upheld such laws in 1908 and 1912 cases. Ms. Mengelkoch argued that the special work hours restriction deprived women of job opportunities in violation of the Constitution and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, in that women were not considered for the higher paid supervisory jobs that might require longer hours and were denied opportunity to earn time and a half for overtime. The Court of Appeals reversed and remanded the case to the three- judge federal district court to determine whether women's rights under the l4th amendment have been violated by the California hours law and whether such hours restrictions for women only violate Title VII of the Civil Rights Act. Ms. Mengelkoch was represented by Human Rights for Women volunteer attorneys. IIRW is a non-profit organization established to assist litigation, research^and educational projects relating to discrimination against women. The l4th amendment prohibits the states from denying to any person the equal protection of the laws or depriving any person of life, liberty or property without due process of law. Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits discrimination in employment based on race, color, religion, sex, or national origin.
