AN OPEN LETTER TO VOTERS

BETTY ELSTER

Dear Friends,

We as former Presidents of the Southfield Bar Association are
concerned about who is elected a judge at any level. In Oakland
County this year we have an important choice to make in electing
a Circuit Court Judge. We are supporting LARRY TERNAN.
It is important to have a qualified person sitting as a Judge.
LARRY TERNAN is the most qualified candidate to be our next
Oakland County Circuit Court Judge. He has over 21 years of Cir-
cuit Court Trial experience and the Judicial temperament.
We are not alone in our support and respect for LARRY
TERNAN. The lawyers of our community and Oakland County pre-
ferred LARRY over his opponent 56% to 35%. Amazingly, 18% of
those who responded to the poll rated his opponent "not qual-
ified."
Please join us in supporting LARRY TERNAN and vote for
him on November 4th.
Sincerely,

HON. CLARENCE A. REID, JR.

omen are the
Constitution's
overlooked
citizens. As philosophers have
said, words create reality and
the reality is that women are
worth 69 cents on the dollar."
Glenda Greenwald, pub-
lisher of The Michigan
Woman magazine, made this
assessment last week at the
Birmingham Temple.
Addressing the temple's
Symposium 1987 series, Mrs.
Greenwald said that the Con-
stitution and the Bill of
Rights both state that "all
men are created equal" but
nowhere does it mention
women's equality. This lack
of wording, Mrs. Greenwald
said, has caused inequality
for women in all aspects of
their lives. The passing of the
Equal Rights Amendment
would change this, she ad-
vised.
Mrs. Greenwald chronicled
history, from biblical times to
the present, indicating
women's struggle for equality
with men. She said that in
the past, women were taught
to be fragile and domestic,
whereas men were taught to
be tough and to take care of
themselves. Women waited
for men — to call, to marry
them, to define their lives.
Today, there are changes,
she said. "The younger the
women, the more they act
like men, and the more
feminine they want to look.
They no longer wait for men
to call them."

She referred to a Time
magazine article on world
maps to illustrate "Power
Dominance." In the article,
several maps showed one
country as the largest, with
other countries surrounding
it in much smaller propor-
tion. "Obviously, those in
power place themselves in
the center," she said.
In an imaginary map of bi-
blical times, where men were
in power, and in 1776, with
the signing of the Declaration
of Independence, a male fig-
ure would dominate the cen-
ter, she explained.
"Today is the he/she gener-
ation. By changing the words
(by adding the 'she') we have
redefined reality." On an im-
aginary map today, men and
women would both be in the
center, she said.
White males controlled the
system in the past, and told
us how to live, she stated.
"Our lives were programmed
for us." Gradually, women
have changed the system and
with their own freedom — to
redefine themselves, to play
multiple roles — men and
children have also gained a
greater freedom. With women
working, men are no longer
solely responsible for finan-
cial support, and children
have needed to become more
self-reliant.
Today, she assessed, "being
female is no longer a barrier
to power." But everything
isn't perfect. Women have to
recreate their own role-
models, in the workplace,
rather than adopt the ones
that men have been using.
