Transcript Page 8 BROADSIDE February 1974 LETTERS (continued) At the same time we should, of course, proceed with the other projects mentioned, but I think that the service aspect should be given primary consideration. Of course, it could be argued that the way things are run now, the Center is too costly in terms of money and energy for the number of people that we really help. That may be true. But one thing it does give us is a higher degree of visibility than we enjoyed before. It is also easier for someone to simply ring up a Women's Center or to stop by than to intrude into someone's private home looking for information on NOW. To date, the Center represents a lot of people-hours. I would rather spend a few more to make it really effective than to throw away what we have. Chris Feahr I don't know how interested you might be in stamps, but I've spent quite a few years of my life collecting them. I'm not an authority on the subject, but it doesn't take much knowledge to see that there aren't very many women's faces in my collection. I decided to find out why, and proceeded to write the Postmaster General. I really never expected to receive a reply, but a few months later I received a letter from him. The letter was accompanied by a list of 33 names of stamps (which I am enclosing)*which were printed to honor women. Only 2 2 out of those 33 stamps actually have a woman's face on them. But then, Postmaster General E.T. Klassen and whoever it was that answered my letter for him pointed out that only people who are worth honoring received that honor. So much for women. I was then told that the list of women's names I selected would be given careful consideration and blah-blah-blah. I know my letter is on file in the trash can. But then they told me that I should be satisfied with all that women have received (not deserved?) through the years. After all, didn't we just get Willa Cather in the (one stamp out of four) "Poets" series? So much for my letter. But I'm not satisfied! I've got two shoe boxes full of American stamps. In them I see dogs, turkeys, cats, men, trees, railroads, clowns, flags, men again, planes, books, men in space, statues, boats, ships, paintings, men once more, landscapes, different types offish, birds, cows, more men, bridges, churches, guns, cars, saints, semi- saintly men, men in sports, men in politics, men in. . .HELL! Where are the women? Only 22 women's faces out of two shoe boxes full of stamps! That's what this letter is about. I would like to get this message across to my sisters. I know that they will feel what I'm feeling now and write as many letters as it is necessary to get the job done. Women deserve to be honored too, and the office of the Postmaster General has simply ignored that fact. The address is: United States Postal Service, Washington, DC 20 260. I hope those who are concerned will make up a list of names, keeping in mind that the person has to be dead before it is even considered. Ibis Gomez *now posted at the Women's Center
