Transcript Sis and the old family firm by Barbara Lane Farley It isn't that we are altogether opposed to the fatherly pride that prompts Dear Old Dad to take Junior into the family business. We are not, after all, ready to destroy the System, as more radical women would wish. Therefore, it will not be necessary to tear down signs and obliterate ads reading "Smith & Son", W.W. Jones & Sons", or "Wilson Brothers". It is just that we wistfully (but with increasing anger) want to see signs, ads, and letterheads reading - "Smith & Daughter", "W. W. Jones & Daughters" and"Joe and Sarah Wilson, Sibs'.' If our own male kin have no confidence in our abilities, failing to understand that it just isn't enough to let SIS "do the books", write some letters and sell behind the counter - if they can't see that Sis needs at least the same recognition that Brother gets (and the same salary and share of the business's future), then what hope have we of enlightening the non-kin of the business world? No Sis or* Daughter should lend her support to family business that denies her equal rank and privilege with Sonny Boy. It has been our observation too that a father will often lend a son the money to start a new business but will fail to give his daughter that opportunity because he has no confidence in her ability to conduct a business. (He saves the dough to give her an expensive wedding). Senator George S. McGovern (D,SD) announced in Washington that he is declining an invitation to the annual Gridiron Club dinner March 13 because the group of newsmen excludes women. At the Gridiron Dinner on March 14, 1970, women protested with a picket line carrying signs such as "Gridiron studs are sexist bigots." The banks were closed February 15 and no mail deliveries were made. Some thought it was George Washington's brithday. Some knew better. In Houston, it was Susan B. Anthony Day. On February 10, Brenda Badgley, on behalf of Houston NOW asked the City Council to designate February 15 Susan B. Anthony Day. "In a country that observes National Hot Dog Week, it is the rule rather than the exception that birthdays of famous women go unheralded," Ms. Badgley told the Council. Convinced, the Council directed Mayor Louie Welch to issue a proclamation. In it Welch said, "Susan B. Anthony... personifies, more them anyone else, the progress in the achievement of women's rights in the United States." He invited all citizens to share in observance of the day "as an appropriate means of paying tribute to a woman who has contributed so much to the strengthening and development of our democratic society." Welch also congratulated Houston NOW for the work being done in the area of women's rights during the present era." and they say women talk too much The first vote on Rule 22 for filibuster reform took place on February 18. Besides the many amendments to the ERA that Senator Sam Ervin(D.NC) had introduced and waiting their turn he had the big stick of the filibuster to finish it off. So we need to work now to help those Senators who wish to reform the procedure. One reform suggested is to require a three-fifths vote to cut off debate instead of the two-thirds vote presently required. It is important that you CALL, WRITE, OR WIRE YOUR SENATOR TO SUPPORT REFORM OF THE FILIBUSTER RULE. We must anticipate our future battles. We also can hope to change Senator Ervin's mind.
