Transcript New Discovery: Columnist JOAN BECK Found on the Op-ed page of the Houston Post, Joan Beck is a columnist with the Chicago Tribune, who grabbed my interest with two recent columns. I shall certainly watch for her column in the future. July 26 her column had the headline, "There's a move afoot to spike high heels, liberate female feet." It reported a new social trend: the wearing of jogging shoes to work by women for the purpose of comfort. I was grabbed since foot comfort (and safety) has always been exceedingly important to me. "What's happening is a groundswell rebellion against the Chinese foot- binding syndrome that, in Western translation, socially pressures women to accept being hobbled in 3-inch heels as the price of attracting masculine approval." Such wonderful prose to express what I've wanted to say for years. Beck continues in a pleasant, non-taxing style to quote relevant statistics and make her case. She concludes: , "We may never see women wearing black satin Adidas at formal parties or navy blue suede Nikes in the boardroom. But comfortable shoes still give men a distinct advantage over women on the job and you can bet your briefcase that it won't last forever," Then, on August 3, Beck's topic was child care, and why it is unaddressed, and she hit all the hard issues. For example, she takes to task the new magazines for working women: "One article, for example, casually advised mothers they probably couldn't afford to budget more than $50 a week for a full-time sitter, but never speculated on what kind of women would work for so much less than a minimum wage." This is a columnist worth reading. Look for her—JOAN BECK. MONTROSE AREA CHAPTER OF NOW: President Vice-president Secretary Treasurer Peggy Hall Kinsey Marshall Kay Whyburn Burnet Oliveros QUOTE WITHOUT COMMENT 1PM DAYTIME SPECIAL: THE EQUAL RIGHTS AMENDMENT Phyllis Schlafly 3:30 PM Elizabeth Post Why we need etiquette today. 1:30 PM SPEAK UP 8c LISTEN, Sonya Hamlin The art of apologizing 3:30 PM FAMILY TRAVELS, Marty Leshner- What to do when your luggage gets lost. Newsletter Editor Lynne Mutchler From the Newsletter Editor: The best NOW newsletter I've ever read is produced by LUBBOCK NOW. The following excerpt ("CLICK!") is from the June 1982 issue. To subscribe to the "Lubbock NOW Times" ($5/year), write to: Briggs Twyman, 5414 43rd Street, Lubbock TX 79414. CLICK! Raising sexist children isn't hard. One thing you can do is allocate privileges according to gender rather than age or strength. As an example, a local NOW member reports seeing this incident at Lubbock International Airport: a father and his two children, a girl about 8 and a boy about 5, were waiting for their bags to come up on the carrousel. Both children were eager to help get the bags, but when they finally came up, the father told the older, stronger girl to stand back, then helped his younger son lift the bag off. The disappointment on the girl's face was plain. The message—that gender determines privilege—will doubtlessly sink in later.
