Transcript March 1973 BROADSIDE Page 7 Recommended Feminist Reading THE PHYLLIS SCHLAFLY REPORT, Cox 61S, Alton, Illinois 62002. Ever wonder about those Right- to-Lifers or HOW (Happiness of Womanhood)? Here's their side, as pro- i,»unced by their superstar, Phyllis Schlafly. Choice quotes and incredible twists of logic are crammed into this 4-8 page monthly newsletter. Schlafly's rationale is that child-bearing and rearing is the best deal women could ever get. From Vol. 5, No. 7 (February, 19.72), we learn, "The fact that women, not men, have babies is not the fault of selfish and domineering men, or of the establishment, or of any clique of conspirators who want to oppress women. It's sinply the way God made us .... since women must bear the physical consequences of the sex act, men must be required to bear the other consequences and pay in other ways. Our respect for the family as the basic unit of society ... is the greatest single achievement in the entire history of women's rights." After all, "a man may search 30 to 40 years for accomplishment in his profession. A woman can enjoy real achievement when she is young -- by having a baby." Amazing reading for the curious, but cost is $5 a year which goes into the "Eagle Trust Fund" ~ for printing and what else? OFF OUR BACKS, 1346 Connecticut Avenue NW, Room 1013, Washington, D.C. 20036, $5/year. In its third year now, OFF OUR BACKS is one of the oldest feminist newspapers in the country. Although it is written by and for Washington, D. C., women, much of the news is of interest to women everywhere. Each issue includes a "counter culture" pullout — 8 pages of women's graphics, poetry, photography, and stories. The style is that of radical journalism, alternating vague polemics with statistics and cold facts that are hard to find in the establishment press. A women's SPACE CITY! with all the plusses and minuses of the alternative press. OOB's stance on women's politics is definitely radical. If you're squeamish about lesbianism or blind rage, don't read OFF OUR BACKS. If the monthly MS just doesn't come often enough and you want variety in your feminist reading, subscribe to OOP.. WOMEN AND ART, 89 East Broadway, Hew York, New York 10002. With the advent of minimal art, earthworks, and body art, an anti-art avant garde (mostly male) has appeared. Generally, critics and art writers (mostly male) have responded to this with Creeping Obscurantism, a style of writing which prevents all but the brave and the stupid from reading the national art magazines. WOMEN AND ART attempts to turn this negative trend on its ear with articles by and for artists, fanale artists. Still a very young oublication, WOMEN AND ART has failed, so far, to escape Creeping 0, creating instead its own brand of weak bullshit. Most of the artist-wri ters published in WAA are devoted to Marxism, figurative painting, and feminism. Their message is that art should no longer be elitist; they speculate about a "world in which the aesthetic dimension would permeate common as well as special life activities," art in the laundromat instead of the museum. As a radical feminist pub- AUSTRALIA GETS TOUGH WITH EQUAL PAY On December 15 the commission that sets wage rates in Australia ruled that women must receive equal pay for equal work by June 1975. A spokesperson for the National Employers Policy Committee immediately threatened that prices would be raised to absorb the expense. Instant inflation? lication, WOMEN AND ART blames the elitism of the art world on inale domination in the field. While it is true that women as artists, art historians, curators, and critics have been discriminated against, it does not necessarily follow that the exclusion of women is the root of all evil In the arts. Like OFF OUR SACKS, '.I0MEN AND ART wastes too much space on diatribe and does not produce enough facts and/or techniques for changing things. On the positive side, WAA has I reproduced many works of unknown or unappreciated artists. Hopefully, the unevenness of this newspaper will be worked out as the publication matures. Published quarterly; $2 a year or $5 for institutions or those who can afford it. As you may have read in last month's MS. Magazine, one of our members, Linda April Raines, has just published a book. It is a feminist anthology of poetry and art work entitled: THERE'S A CONTRADICTION INSIDE. The book was completely written, edited, composed and financed by women. It's a human look at womanhood from an artist's sensitive and emotional view point. Everyone involved in the movement should find themselves involved in THERE'S A CONTRADICTION INSIDE. And the best part 1s that 15% of the profits from the book will be donated to the Houston Chapter. Order your beautiful, full- color, hard-bound author's signature edition today.
