Carmean Carmean NOW Glamour June, 1980 TMi CONVENTIONS! WHAT TO EXPECT This summer when you turn on your television to watch the National Contentions, you'll see more women delegates than ever before — For the first time ever, the Democratic party has required that 50 percent of its delegates must be women. The Republicans don't have the same policy, but Republican women hope that nearly half of their delegates will be women also. Delegates vote on which issues should be part of their party's platforms, and thereby influence the official party stand on important national topics debated during the election. Women delegates to both conventions will try to put women's issues on the platforms, which will give those concerns party backing and national visibility. Republican feminists, for instance, will be working at the convention (which begins July 14) to keep the Equal Rights Amendment on the party platform. Four years ago, the Republican party gave women plenty of support, because Gerald Ford was sympathetic to women's issues. This year is different. "Ronald Reagan is against everything we have fought for and we will have to fight to get the ERA on the platform," says a spokesperson for the National Women's Political Caucus. Reagan opposes the ERA. The women delegates to the Democratic Convention (to begin August 11) will try to add to their platform twenty-six items that were voted on at the 1978 National Women's Conference in Houston. The "Plan of Action" represents the consensus of thousands of women on issues ranging from child care to military spending. So tune in to the conventions. What women accomplish there will determine the extent to which women's issues are discussed during the forthcoming campaign. June 1980/MS.23 Rx: ERA Passage of the Equal Rights Amendment could be regarded as "primary preventive medicine" in its effects on the mental health of women. Two Columbia University researchers, Leo Srole and Anita Kassen Fischer, base this conclusion on data drawn from the Midtown Manhattan Longitudinal Study, an ongoing investigation that began in 1952, consisting of thousands of hours of interviews with New Yorkers at different times in their lives. Srole and -Fischer's most recent finding, which they reported in the March issue of the Archives of General Psychiatry, included evidence that women's mental health has bettered dramatically in the last decade. And they connect this improvement with the increased social opportunities available to women. In analyzing the data from the 1950s, the researchers found that women's rate of impaired mental health was as much as three times that of men's. In the seventies, however, the rate of impaired mental health for women was nearly the same as the rate for men. The improvement was particularly dramatic among younger women.
