Shapiro, recently reappointed
by Mayor Dennis Archer as di-
rector of consumer affairs for
the city of Detroit. "When the
consumers movement began in
the '60s, there was no estab-
lished hierarchy. A number of
us filled that vacuum. Aside
from Ralph Nader, we were all
women. Consumer affairs is al-
most considered a woman's job
because there was the notion it
was related to shopping and the
supermarket."
In 1974, Mayor Coleman
Young appointed Ms. Shapiro
to her current position. Ever
since, she has been resolving
consumer complaints, testify-
ing before the Detroit City
Council and educating the city
on a wide range of consumer af-
fairs issues.
Ms. Shapiro remembers one
minor incident of workplace dis-
crimination.
Before her job with the city
of Detroit, Ms. Shapiro worked
as a specialist for the Michigan
Credit Union League. She re-
ceived a request to give a lec-
ture about student loans.
"I was no expert, but I called
and let them know I could do
a lecture on consumer affairs,"
she said. 'The answer I got was,
We don't want no women com-
ing here to talk about that stuff,'
and the male on the other end
of the line hung up."
Two years later, the same or-
ganization called and begged
her to come talk.
Ms. Shapiro considers her-
self fortunate because she did
not have to face the struggles
other women encountered. She
attributes her luck to the fact
that she went back to work
"very late in life."
"My husband traveled a
great deal and I no longer had
the responsibilities of taking
care of small children," Ms.

Shapiro said. "I don't regret the
fact that I did not have the
same problems as other work-
ing women, but I do regret not
starting younger."
Mira Linder, a Holocaust
survivor originally from Poland,
always was fascinated by beau-
ty, but said she never intended
to open a business as large as
her Southfield spa.
What began as a one-woman
facial operation 25 years ago
has grown into a complete spa
facility with 35 employees. Ms.
Linder's family also operates
a spa in Toronto.

Mira Linder was
always fascinated
by beauty.

Ms. Linder, now a grand-
mother, thought she wanted to
spend her golden years in re-
tirement. Instead, she decided
it was important to spend time
with her family and, at the
same time, continue doing
something she always wanted
to do.
"Working to me is living, so
I don't realize I'm actually work-
ing," Ms. Linder said. "I don't
have to wake up and think,
`How am I going to kill the day?'
Now I think, 'How can I live up
the day?"'
Ms. Linder and Kitty Wagn-
er, who opened the area's first
spas, said they never faced dis-
crimination, specifically because
of the nature of their business.
"It was a profession having
to do with women," said Ms.
Wagner, who has been in busi-
ness for 30 years and also has
her own line of skin-care prod-
ucts. "I didn't have to fight my
way into a man's world." ❑
