Transcript MALE CHAUVINIST PIGS SPEAK -OUT Prodded by Barbara Lane Farley "I believe in equal pay for equal work but..(l) I never had a male secretary!" (2)1 don't hire women in my business." "Women's Lib is OK by me. I'm gonna retire and let my wife support me. Hee Haw! (Could he live on the salary our society allows women and his wife to make?) "I don't want my wife to work." (What does he think she does now- at home?) "Women are too emotional responsible jobs." ( Yet than women (1) commit suicide,(2)be- come insane,(3) become alcoholic, (4) commit violent "emotional"crimes, and (5) succumb to illnesses, such as ulcers, high blood pressure, and heart attack, which are aggravated if not induced by excessive emotion. to handle more men "Women marry to have a meal ticket." (If he really believes this he (1) should never marry or (2) should be strongly supporting women workers in their drive for equal employment opportunities.) NATIONAL BOARD KNOCKS SEXISM The National Organization for Women called Houston a city of the past in its sexist attitudes. The charge was made at a press conference January 18 in Houston. The session with the press concluded a three-day meeting in Houston (January 15-17) of the NOW national board of directors. Aileen Hernandez, national president, said: "Houston ranks Number 1—actually 46 of 46 cities— in sex discrimination, according to information compiled by the Equal Employment Opportunities Commission hearings held here last summer." The national officers also called for a fair and just trial for black militant scholar Angela Davis, charged with murder in California. NOW officers also condemned the inhumane, insensitive statements of Vice President Spiro Agnew who virtually recommended forced sterilization for welfare mothers In a recent California speech. Wilma Scott Heide, Chairwoman of the NOW Board, said: "Perhaps the Vice President, as a man, should consider the responsibility of males for unwanted pregnancies and suggest vasectomies as a solution." NOW officers also blasted the rigid and blatant sex discrimina tion that is apparently national policy for American Telephone and Telegraph Company. A dramatic example of that company's sexist policies and reluctance to obey the laws of this country is the case of Lorena Weeks of Wadley, Georgia. Southern Bell Telephone Company continues to deny Ms. Weeks a switchman job six years after her application and a full two years after the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in her favor in a suit brought by NOW attorney Sylvia Roberts of Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
