Transcript Page 4 BROADSIDE June 1972 U.S. SENATORS RATED ON WOMEN'S ISSUES The Woman Activist, a monthly bulletin for women's rights, has published a rating of all U. S. Senators based on voting records for four critical women's issues including: equal rights, employment, education and child care. An analysis of the ratings shows the 100 Senators as 21% excellent, 13% good, 28% fair, 22% poor and 16% complete failures. Democrats scored better than Republicans in the excellent category by two to one. Republicans ran about even in the fair category but were worse than the Democrats by two and one half to one in the zero category. Texas Senator John Tower scored 25% and Senator Lloyd Bentsen scored only slightly better with 50%. An explanation of the rating system used by the Woman Activist follows: The rating is based on four votes with each vote counting 25%. *ERA, No. 113 Leg., Ervin Amendment to Equal Rights Amendment.

If you have never written to your legislator before here are some guidelines: 1) When you write to your legislator, write to the chief administrator too, the Governor and/or the President. 2) Be brief, one or two sentence letters are all that is required. 3) Always clearly identify the bill or issue that concerns you. 4) Write about only one thing to a letter and make it personal, express your own views. *EE0C, No. 10 Leg., Dominick Amendment to Equal Employment Enforcement Act.
