Transcript ARE *****AND NOW .FOR THOSE INDIVIDUAL THAT CLAIM NOW MEMBERS RADICAL, LIBERAL, UN-AMERICAN CHAZIE3...let's compare the right-wing, ultra-conservative, fundamentalist Christians that seem to be in control of the Republican Party********** 6' Soviet ideal woman is feminine, not feminist Houston Chronicle Sunday, August 12,1984 By JACK REDDEN United Press international MOSCOW - The ideal Soviet woman is not one who walks in space and certainly not one who would aspire to high office. No, she is one who can sew a button and peel a potato and generally respects the "stronger sex." So says a Leningrad child psychologist in an article printed in tne Soviet trade union newspaper Trud. "The true strength of a woman lies not in her physical strength but in the weakness of her sex," the psychologist, V. Garbuzov, wrote, "By her tenderness, her pure female tact, her delicacy, she first wins the heart of her father, then husband." Boys and girls are meant to be different, Garbuzov concluded. The psychologist shunned the Western movement away from stereotyping children into male and female roles. "Giving a girl an apron as a present before she is given a Sunday dress instills in her the skill of housekeeping, the skill and taste for this eternal female cause," it said. A mother must teach by example, acting and dressing properly, it said. Her daughter must learn the role of mother by caring for dolls, then pets and then the younger children. "Before she goes to school she can already sew on a button, iron a handkerchief, peel a potato," the article described a girl properly raised. "A rougfi, coarse girl will inevitably turn into a rough, coarse woman. To prevent this happening, a girl must | from her earliest years be prepared for her noble designation of woman, wife, mother." The article appeared at about the same time as Soviet cosmonaut Svet- lana Savitskaya was in the news. She returned to Earth after becoming the first woman to walk in space. On the Soviet battle of the sexes, it was clear whose side Garbuzov took. "There is yet another thing that a daughter must be taught" the Trud article said, "to respect the stronger sex in the form of a specific boy, youth or man for his personal qualities." The psychologist author expressed alarm at a survey that showea Soviet women did not respect their men, and placed the blame squarely on the women, who have outnumbered men through most of the century due to deaths in war and revolution. "I am afraid that this is the fault of the female half of the family ... constantly branding sons, brothers, husbands etc. as stupid, unfaithful, drunks," the article said. Women are making a "terrible mistake," the article said, warning that they might end up divorced and lonely. "What could be more bitter for a woman?" Although women officially enjoy full equality, they are often blamed in the government-controlled press such as Trud for such social problems as high divorce rates and troubled children.
