Transcript December 1972 BROADSIDE Page 7 Recommended Feminist Reading Fatherless children and husband- less mothers have always been classified into a special niche in American society -- illegitimate children to be pitied and their mothers to be scorned. Although this is not always so today, the change in attitude is agonizingly slow. Two recent books deal with this subject, but through extremely opposite points of view. Although one will make you laugh and the other make you cry, they are not to be missed. MOM, THE WOLFMAN AND ME. By Norma Klein, Pantheon Books (ages 10 to 14), $4.50. "They have to have been married," she said, "You couldn't have been born otherwise." Eleven year old Brett has no trouble setting her friend straight. She is a matter-of-fact, unselfcon- scious child who refuses to consider herself pitiable. In truth, Brett feels kind of sorry for everyone else -- for her friends who have regular parents, her neighbor whose divorced mother spends all her time desperately seeking another husband and for all children who must endure a set bedtime, an organized meal or a patronizing attitude. When Theo (a bearded bear of a man who Brett dubs the Wolf Man) enters her mom's life, Brett fears the worst -- marriage. Brett likes her life just as it is. And through her eye of perception, we share the tension of the novel: will Mom and Theo go the the way of all flesh — from love to marriage to baby carriage? LOVECHILD, By Mary Hanes, Lippin- cott, $5.95. In this candid and absorbing account of unwed motherhood, Mary Hanes suddenly finds that love for her newborn son does not come easily. The men in Mary's life seem to intensify her self-absorption, "There was no one I cared about at all, when you got right down to the warm-in- the-skin level." At the last minute, she is rescued from her alienation (somewhat melodramatically) by a consciousness- raising women's group. Mary welcomes "the great rush of first self-love, an exhilarating, powerful joy. . . God damn it, I was a human being." Mary at last finds herself falling in love. Although still somewhat confused, the outlook is promising. The story of hate and prejudice, of helplessness and despair and triumph is not an easy story to read, but it must not be missed. Every woman who has had to fight to discover her worth as a human being will find strength in this powerful book. February Conference Not To Be Missed "Revolution: Tomorrow is NOW" is the theme of the 6th NOW National Conference to be held in Washington, D.C, February 17-19. The conference will follow NOW tradition and be a whirlwind of education, excitement and entertainment. No NOW member who can afford to go should miss this opportunity. Several thousand feminists from all over the nation will gather to plan the next steps in the Revolution. Workshops will be conducted on all phases of the Women's Movement. National Task Force Coordinators will share plans and achievements with interested feminists, so that there will be a great exchange of ideas and opinions from diverse sources. Meeting the dynamic women who are leaders in the Movement is itself enough to make the trip worthwhile. Persons planning to attend the National Conference should be a 1972 member of NOW or have paid dues by December 7. Many NOW members are expected to attend the Conference and there is a chance that registration will be limited. Plane fare will be about $150 based on a minimum of 16 in the group. Hotel rates at the Statler-Hilton, where the conference is being held, are $18.00 single, $13.50 double and $10.00 triple. You may make other , arrangements yourself. The plane will leave Houston on Friday evening, February 16. The return reservation will be for Monday p.m. However, the special fare allows for persons to return on different flights. Persons planning to attend the Conference should get the following form to Parrish Hirasaki or Poppy Northcutt as soon as possible.
