Transcript Dear Laura, Helen: My sister(In blood as well as In the movement)Peggy Hall Mazeika recently sent me your "Place in Space" newsletter. Let me congratulate you on a fine piece of literature. I especially like the "Her- story" section since I am soon to teach a Woman's History Course. The comments on women's image in the media were of special interest to me also since I am Public Relations Chairman for the Rochester chapter. Keep up the good work, and I'll send you a Rochester newsletter soon. The title BROADSIDE is pure inspiration. Eest regards, Anne Hall Rochester,N.Y. CONSIDER THIS... To the Editors: I read recently about a Los Angeles Municipal Judge,Wilbur G. Dettmar, who ordered Marguerite M. Buckley, an attorney, to go home and change clothes. He told her, "Either you want to be a woman or you want to be a man. You can take your choice, but not in my courtroom." The courtroom is not, despite what Judge Dettmar thinks, a private place of abode, nor is the law his personal treasure to dispense as a reward, nor is a person required to conform to his standards of dress in order to be a woman. In this country beset as it is by monumental problems, far be it from me to be concerned out of proportion by the rantlngs of one petty dictator...BUT IS HE JUST ONE OF A KIND? B. H. Houston TIT-FOR-T(H)AT? To the Editors: I would like to comment on a recent example of the double standard in action. I read that in Rainham, England, the town's United Services Workingmen's Club said its all-male committee had decided not to let the members' wives hold a male striptease show on their ladies' social night because it would "lower the tone of the club." However, the male members were going to have a girl stripper on their stag niprht. It seems to me that whenever the subject of nudity comes up, men are always willing to play ball...as long as it's not their balls that are being used! Name Withheld DON'T IT As if dealing with the finest minds of the 12th century daily and being inundated with sexist insults, teeming and lurking everywhere, were not enough, feminists must sometimes argue with family and friends. Puzzled by her work, hostile to the assumption of her new independent stance, or jealous of the time she invests in the women's rights struggle, they can make life difficult and painful. Norman Mailer, Stokely Carmich- ael, and Spiro Agnew can be dealt with. They're not people we live with and/or love. And their arguments are blatantly sexist, not unsettling questions couched as concern. "Why do you spend so much effort on this?" "Don't you think that if you worked this hard on your job you'd make more money than a man?" "Do any of these projects accomplish anything?" And the clincher. "Do you really believe you'll ever live to see all these changes come about?" Perhaps the best thing to do is recite the NOW Bill of Rights under your breath, count the number of amendments to the U.S. Constitution which do not safeguard women (all but one), and say in your kindest tones what Susan B. Anthony once replied to a similar question: "I often think that my work has been very like that of subsoil plowing, that I have only been preparing the ground for cultivation by those women who are reaping the benefits of fuller opportunities and higher education."
