Transcript count women, too The US Census Bureau was at the Whitehall Hotel on May 27 to gather community input on the 1980 Census. Betty Barnes, Connie Acosta and Jan Pierce attended. Betty provided some feminist criticism of the Census during the time allotted for uninvited community folk to speak. Betty presented two main areas of criticism: terms and substantive questions. It won't surprise anyone that the Census Bureau counts only heads of households, their wives, children and other dependents. If you don't live that way, that's just too bad. And it isn't unexpected, only insulting, that it uses "he" all the way through, instead of "she/he" or "they". We then come to the second area. After the question about whether the resident is a girl or a woman, there's a question on whether she has ever had any babies. After the question about whether the resident is a man, there's a question on whether he has served in the military. If they need that information, the question should read "Has he/she ever served in the military?". And it gets worse. Work is considered to be only paid work or unpaid work in a family business or on a farm. Volunteer work, housework, and school work don't qualify as WORK, It might feel like work, it might make the world safe for feminism, but it doesn't count with the Census Bureau. The chapter gave Betty and Jan the authority to write up their criticism and sent it to the Bureau and also to DO IT NOW. Hearings are to continue throughout the summer and we hope other chapters will speak up when they are held in their areas. ______ Listen, there's not enough If everybody got one good physical contact hug a day, I'll bet we'd see in this old world. some changes around here.
