Transcript HOUSTON CHAPTER NATIONAL ORGANIZATION FOR WOMEN Vol.3, No.3 BROADSIDE July 1972 Houston NOW To File 500 SEX DISCRIMINATION Complaints Despite requests from Houston NOW, the Houston Chronicle plans to continue its discriminatory policy of sex-segregated want ads. Mr. Jack Johnson, head of the classified advertising department, states, "The policy will be changed only when our advertisers want it changed." Although it is not against the law to have sex-segregated ads, it is unlawful to advertise under them. Studies have shown that persons seldom apply for jobs listed for a different race or sex. Until recently, many newspapers also had column headings such as "Male Help Wanted, Colored". The "Female Help Wanted" columns have the same effect racially segregated columns once did. Not only are women unlikely to look beyond "Female" columns, these columns often contain the lowest paying jobs. A brief look at any Chronicle will show that the salaries offered in the "Male" columns average almost twice those offered to women. In the opinion of EEO Task Force Chairone Parrish Hirasaki, "Sex-segregated want ads are yet another way our society encourages the myth of differences in ability between the sexes, i.e., all women can best type, answer the phone and make coffee in the business world." According to government regulations, "the placement of an advertisement in columns headed 'Male' or 'Female' will be considered an expression of a preference, limitation, specification or discrimination based on sex."
