Transcript AND AN M-16 RIFLE The George Washington University Women's Liberation position paper on the question of the draft was entered into the record of the Armed Services Committee hearings February 10. The hearings are on the Administration proposal to extend the draft for two years. The women's group asked to give testimony before the Committee when the Washington Post account of the hearing (Feb. 9) mentioned that the question of conscription of women came up and Senator Barry Goldwater was quoted as saying:"We have enough trouble with women without giving them M-16 rifles." National Capital Area NOW and Northern Virginia NOW and the GW Women's Liberation protested to Goldwater and demanded an apology. They felt, more importantly, that the point should be made that the ERA was defeated beacuse of the draft question and that their position should be a matter of record. Women , with the passage of the ERA, would have the obligation of military service but not be required to serve functions for which they are not fitted, any more than men are so required. Carol Vance read the statement into the record and said that Senator Goldwater to be accurate should have said "Women have enough trouble without giving them M-16 rifles." Beverly Fisher , also of WL, and Flora Crater, North Virginia NOW president accompanied Carol. We Told You So Sir John Baker, emeritus professor of mechanical sciences at University of Cambridge, England, says women make the best bosses. "But men, who have held the whip-, hand for centuries, don't like taking orders from a woman," reported Sir John. Sir John said one reason women boss better is that they learned patience and "how to cope" when they ran a home. The research committee headed by Baker urged a program to get more women into mathematics and the sciences. itie As to warfare, which our ultra males are so sure, to fall back on as proof of their essential dominance: warfare is not a social process at all, but a social disease, freely admitted to be most characteristic of the male. . It is the instinct of sex-combat, over-developed and misused. Charlotte Perkins Gilman, 1912 "All women are poor, " Aileen Hernandez, NOW national president, told a seminar on feminist strategies for the seventies on the opening weekend of the NOW Center for Women's Studies in Los Angeles. She pointed out that most working women receive low wages and most women in the upper economic levels receive their living from a husband or father, so NOW is not the wealthy organization many people expect because its members do not have the money available to give. Our lack of funds is also part of the reason why we have "common cause with all disadvantaged groups," Aileen said, and she added that we must define our cause as part of the total cause. She called for some basic economic changes in American society, saying, "We can't tolerate five per cent unemployment. We must have full employment or we will have to have priorities again, and women are always at the bottom of those priorities." Among the strategies Aileen suggested for the coming decade was that "We've got to learn more about how the system operates." "We must make it clear that the price of not doing what we ask is very high," Aileen said, and suggested that we unelect a few officials rather than concentrating on electing our own. - Los Angles Chapter NOW NEWS
