Transcript Page 6 BROADSIDE May 1972 Sexists KO Future Champ Jackie Fuller, 12, joined an amateur boxing club in South Oxney, Britain and quickly became one of the club's most outstanding athletes. Club officials thought they had a champion in the making, but just before a big match, it was learned that Jackie was a girl and it is illegal for girls to join fight clubs in South Oxney. EEOC Tightens Rules On Job Discrimination The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has strengthened its regulations on job discrimination against women and has broadened the rules to include for the first time employer policies on pregnancy and childbirth. "Our whole standards have changed and I think it's about time." stated William H. Brown in a recent New York Times interview. "We've changed to meet the needs of the people." The employment commission now states that denying a woman a job because she is pregnant is, on its face, a violation of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The commission also advised employers to treat disabilities related to pregnancy, such as recovery from childbirth, miscarriage and abortion the same as any other temporary disability in terms of leave time, seniority, reinstatement and insurance payments. The commission's guidelines make it clear that the policies and practices of employers, labor unions and employment agencies might be held discriminatory under the strengthened equal job opportunity law. The guidelines do not carry the force of law, however, they are influential in courts hearing job discrimination cases. President Nixon has now signed a bill that gives the agency power to sue employers and labor unions in Federal courts when necessary to gain compliance. The new guidelines will also have the function of equalizing fringe benefits, which are defined to include "medical, hospital, accident, life insurance and retirement benefits, profit-sharing and bonus plans, leave, and other terms, conditions and privileges of employment," by making it an unlawful practice to discriminate between men and women. Special attention will be given to the following: Distinctions as to "head of household" or "principal wage earner" status. Such status confers greater benefits on men. 'Different benefits for spouses and families of male and female employees, or benefits for a spouse that are not provided to an employee of same sex. (For example, wives of male employees receiving maternity benefits while female employees do not). Pension or retirement plans having differentials based on sex. The commission has ruled that the following state laws should not be used to the advantage of either sex: Different working-age standards for minor males and female,. Some states have a lower working age requirement for minor males. Special minimum wage, premium overtime, special rest or meal periods. According to Mr. Brown, an employer must provide the -,ame privileges for both sexes, regardless of state law, and cannot use these laws as an excuse to avoid providing such benefits or to avoid employing women entirely. WOMEN POLITICIANS ? WOMEN DO NOT HME THE ABILITY TO UNDERSTAND THE FlNANC/AL CONFUSION, CORRUPTION, LAClc OF leadership, political dishonesty, 4 evasion of issues involved in Holding public office! Old, Ugly Women Need Not Apply Elaine Gordon of the National Organization for Women has charged the Democratic party of recruiting sexpots to serve as hostesses for the 1972 national convention to be held in Miami Beach. "We are deeply disturbed that age, physical measurements and figures of women are the primary criteria to be used for promoting the image of the Democratic party," Elaine complained. The charge was the result of the issuing of a hostess recruiting brochure in Miami Beach which sought applicants between 18 and 21 and asked them for their body measurements. "We are looking for the young, wholesome type and not the sex image type," replied Ted Cohen in denying the charge. He said the age limit was imposed because the hostess job is so demanding and measurements were needed, to assure a proper uniform fit.
