MARCH 2015 Equal Pay, Hollywood-won’t and Herstoricals….

Hello She’s History! friends, fans and women’s history lovers!

It’s WOMEN’S HISTORY MONTH, and as usual I have been quite busy in my never ending quest to turn peeps on to ALL the FABULOUS FEMALES we don’t know enough about!

Speaking of fabulous, back in February, Boyhood actress Patricia Arquette won an Oscar and many hearts when she accepted her Best Supporting Actress award. But she did not accept the economic status of women, saying, “We have fought about everyone else’s rights. It’s about time we fought for our own; it’s about time we have equal pay and equal rights for women in the United States of America.” But she actually opened a can of worms initiating a heated and often times nasty discussion on intersectionality (or intersectionalism) which according to Wikipedia, is “the study of intersections between forms or systems of oppression, domination or discrimination”.

I had not heard of this term before (and I am sure Patricia Arquette had not either), but now many of us do, and that is a good thing. Let’s ALL learn. Women’s history is full oppression, domination and discrimination. When I heard Ms. Arquette make that statement, I immediately thought about the economic status of women, so let’s go there. Today women still earn only 77 cents to the man’s dollar; black women earn 64 cents, and Latina women earn 55 cents! Maria Shriver’s 2013 meticulously researched book on the status of some in our country, THE SHRIVER REPORT: A Woman’s Nation Pushed Back From The Brink, says it all, and it’s all pretty bad.

Now let’s get back to Patricia Arquette and Hollywon’t….

Texas, November 19th, 1977 The Spirit Of Houston

Trail Blazing, Hat-Wearing, Peace-Making Bella Abzug – who joined Congress at the age of fifty – pulled off another miracle, organizing The National Women’s Conference which she got the government to pay for!  A Fabulous Federal First and a major major coup! With a “special emphasis on the representation of low-income women, members of diverse racial, ethnic, and religious groups, and women of all ages,” every state was represented with two thousand delegates, along with eighteen-thousand women and supportive men, many husbands, who supported their wives by carrying their little babies so the moms could go to meetings.  Also carried – a torch from Seneca Falls, New York (home of the First Women’s Conference in 1848) to Houston, Texas.  It was presented to Lady Bird Johnson, Betty Ford and Rosalyn Carter who said it was“…the most important and exciting conference I have ever attended”.  Also on hand, Coretta Scott King, Maya Angelou, Billie Jean King and of course the glorious Gloria Steinem, to name a few. The thirty-fifth Anniversary of this historic event is being celebrated in Manhattan, Monday, November 19th 2012, with yours truly speaking as Bella Abzug.
