Transcript BAROMETRIC READINGS Every now and then it pays to step back and take a look at how the feminist movement is faring nationwide. Many indicators give us a fair idea of how things are going. For instance: EMPLOYMENT: The Labor Department's "1975 Handbook on Women Workers" provides interesting statistics on how women are faring economically. This handbook reflects data collected in 1973 (with the usual bureaucratic speediness). Of all women employed full time in 1973, their median income was $6488, which is 57% of the $11,468 median income received by men. Only 1 .3% of all women workers earned in excess of $15,000 annually, compared with almost 17% of the men. Women who had four or more years of college earned on the average $9771 . Males with an eighth-grade education earned almost $9406. Reported by Parade. DIVORCE: Fathers for Equal Rights unearthed a divorce case in whicITa father with a gross income of $26,400 was left with $3570 per year (less than $69 a week) after court-awarded alimony and child support in a no-fault divorce. Reported by Moneysworth. ERA: The local John Birch Society and the American Party are warming up for an all-out attack on ERA in the 1977 Texas legislative session. Good old Phyllis Schlafly is urging 40,000 women to protest pro-ERA articles scheduled to appear in the July issues of many women's magazines. Reported by Texans for ERA. CIVIL RIGHTS: The Supreme Court has been handing down decisions right and left that are eroding our civil liberties. The Supremes have upheld a state law allowing police to prosecute consenting adults for engaging in homosexual practices in the privacy of their own bedroom. The Supremes have held that the government may not be sued by a citizen whom it has wrongfully labelled a criminal. The Supremes have held that the IRS is not required to inform a citizen of her/his rights prior to an interview. Reported by me. ARE YOU SUFFICIENTLY DEPRESSED? Since it is difficult for me to end on an unhappy note, here's one bright ray of sunshine: SHRINKVILLE: The American Psychiatric Association announced only one new mental illness this past year: Male Chauvinism. In a recent publication, the APA described Male Chauvinism as a neurosis and recommended specific methods of treatment. Reported by Muncy McKinney. It looks to me like we'd better gear up, gang.
