Transcript Strong for ERA By Sue Kaufman "An unprecedented display of unity for the Equal Rights Amendment!" That's what Piilani C. Desha, president of the National Federation of Business and Professional Women's Clubs, Inc. called the meeting of heads of six powerful organizations representing women in the United States. At a news conference held here today she also said, "Here before you are leaders of six of the most powerful organizations in this country. Our combined memberships number in the millions." Present at the gathering were Dr. Marjorie Chambers, president of the American Association of University Women, and Ruth Clusen, president of the League of Women Voters. NOW was represented by its president, Eleanor Smeal, and the National Women's Political Caucus by Mildred Jeffrey, its president, who is also an IWY commissioner. John Ryan, president of the National Education Association, spoke for its predominantly female membership. The session began with a statement by retired U.S. representative from Michigan Martha Griffiths, the prime mover in getting ERA out of years of Congressional snarls. Griffiths is an attorney who retired from the House in 1975 after 20 years of service. In a brief appearance at the meeting BETSY SIEGAL on her way to catch a plane, she said that for 200 years women have supported putting women into the Constitution. "May I remind you of Abigail Adams, who wrote in a letter to her husband, 'do not forget the ladies.' Well, they forgot the ladies." Griffiths said that when the 14th and 15th amendments were ratified, women expected to be included in them but were not. "Why did we have a 15th amendment that said all people could vote and then you have to have a 19th amendment which said that women could vote?" After being on the minds of women for more than 200 years, Griffiths noted the time has now come for the Equal Rights Amendment. "Five years and nine months of ratification time have passed. There are just 15 months left for women to make themselves human." When she was asked if she minded changing the rules—referring to the move to extend the ERA ratification time deadline-Griffiths said that she did not. "Why, I've been voting a change of rules and I'm most willing to change rules that treat women as second-class citizens!" In answer to a comment that anti- ERA forces are pro-family, Griffiths rebutted: "They are anti-family! I have sat on legislative bodies for 25 years and I've never seen one of these people testifying on anything for the family." Clusen, Chambers and Smeal all testified to the fact that "money counts" in the struggle to pass the ERA. According to Smeal, Chicago has already lost more than $15 million in convention business, with Miami and St. Louis also suffering substantial losses due to convention cancellations. The panel of presidents urged all organizations to cancel convention activities in states where the ERA has not been ratified. ARTtours inc.
