Janeway tells women
to move out of dark
Novelist and social historian Elizabeth Janeway urged positive
action by women in "moving out of the shadowy dark where their
individualism is lost" in a WomenSpeak '75 speech Thursday.
Janeway's talk centered on working women. She claimed
women are labeled and label themselves.
"Women cannot as yet be human beings with different skills,
desires and demands," she said.
Janeway said the women's movement would not die out until it
"If you are not treated as an equal you've got to shove,"
Janeway said. She also claimed that men "are thinking abstractly"
when dealing with women's equality, while some "women are
thinking out of context."
Janeway said history favored women in their struggle for
equality. She said this is proved by the increasing numbers of
women in the labor force. Fifty per cent of the labor force is
women, she said.
Working women's problems are unique, Janeway said. The
wages of working women are 60 per cent of those of men while
women who have some college education make about 80 per cent
of what men make, she said.
"Women are the last hired, last promoted and first fired," she
said. Business and industry have decided that a family and a job
should be separate in the case of women employes, she added.
Have to work
Janeway said most women work not because they want to, but
because they have to. Forty-two per cent of all working women do
not have husbands and 19 per cent have husbands who make less
than $7,000 per year. She said post-war growth in the economy is
partly due to families receiving two paychecks. Janeway added
that, "The family that has a working wife is mighty lucky."
Aside from exploring a woman's place in the working world.
Janeway called for a change in the priorities of behaviors and
"We pick our leaders for their aggressive qualities," Janeway
said. Emotions belong in public life, disputes are settled b)
conversation and compromise not confrontation, she said.
On other topics, Janeway said:
-opposition to the equal rights amendment is irrelevant and
archaic. Political break-through by women soon will be achieved on
the local level, she said.
-a United Nations' proclamation citing 1975 as International
Women's Year was token and lip service.
