Transcript May 1972 BROADSIDE Page 5 "CAN WE BRING YOU ANYTHING FROM THE MARKET, MOTHER?" California's passage of a law granting adult status to 18-year-olds has given teenagers a right not shared by women in the state. Teenagers in California now have the right to buy and sell stock in their own names. However, brokerage houses interpret the state's community property statues to mean the husband has control over the disposition of the wife's stocks. The wife of a Los Angeles industrialist has threatened to file suit against Merrill Lynch over the issue. Oklahoma Maybe, But Connecticut! Connecticut has become the second state to reject the U. S. Constitutional amendment to grant women equal rights. (Oklahoma was the first to reject it.) The vote was painfully close with an 83-77 vote against ratification, when a minimum of 89 votes would have passed it. "The male chauvinist pigs win again," Representative Addo E. Bonetti, a democrat from Torrington, said as he left the chamber. "Sex discrimination started when Eve conned Adam into biting the apple and man has had to pay ever since," said Representative John V. Cassidento, New Haven democrat, "only a darn fool would vote for this thing." Representative David H. Neiditz, who introduced the resolution, made a long plea for passage, saying the general assembly had an obligation not only to the people of Connecticut but "to all the people in the 50 states." Connecticut voters may have a chance to change this decision however. A resolution has passed the House to place the issue of equal women's rights on the 1974 ballot in the form of a referendum. Legislative Conference Calls For Change in Marriage Laws The National Organization for Women was one of the sponsors of a recent Women's Legislative Conference held in Albany, N. Y. and coordinated by the Women's Unit of Governor Rockefeller's office. Betty Berry, a NOW member, was invited to be a panelist on the Marriage and Divorce Workshop, which, along with other workshops, passed a variety of resolutions pertaining to marriage. The resolutions were forwarded to all New York legislators. NOW chapters in other states are urged to forward these recommendations to their legislators and to hold women's legislative conferences. Recommendations: 1. A married woman, if she so requests, shall be issued a credit card in her own name, if credit is otherwise available to her. 2. A charge account or credit shall not be terminated after divorce, separation or death of a spouse without 60 days notification to the spouse to provide an opportunity for him or her to give proof of individual financial responsibility. 3. We endorse the principal of an all-out community property system under which all property and earnings acquired after the marriage by either spouse is jointly owned, with the exception of property acquired by gift or inheritance. 4. We advocate the adoption of State and Federal laws requiring that a portion of pension plan and social security rights earned by a spouse during marriage accrue to the other spouse. 5. We encourage legislation requiring attendance at a comprehensive pre-marital course on the rights and loss of rights by those entering a marital relationship.
