WASHINGTON (AP) -President
Reagan, a staunch opponent of the
- n Equal Rights Amendment, is launching
-.a project to urge states to change laws
that discriminate against women. But a
feminist group says that's "the slow
road to equality."
b la st Kathy Wilson, chairwoman of the
National Women's Political Caucus,
called ita piecemeal approach that will
"ff a f "absolutely not" bring about the same
result as a constitutional amendment
that permanently bans discrimination
based on sex.
i hts n"WE FEEL 'THAT the ERA is
necessary in order to establish a
,nationalpolicy and set a standard for

the elimination of discrimination based
op sex," she said in a recent telephone
interview. "One law at a time is the.
slow road to equality and we figure it
would take another 250 years" to
eliminate discriminatorylaws.
Reagan recently sent letters to the
governors asking that they appoint a
staff member to work on the project
with Judy Peachee, who was an aide to
Sen. John Warner (R-Va.), before she
joined the Reagan administration as
assistant to the president for in-
tergovernmental affairs.
"DURING THE campaign I said I
would appoint a special assistant to
serve as liaison with the 50 governors to

assist in establishing procedures for the
states to identify and correct state laws
and regulations which discriminate on
the basis of sex," Reagan wrote.
Despite her objections to Reagan's ap-
proach, Wilson gave him credit for
making the effort and praised his selec-
tion of Peachee.
During last year's presidential cam-
paign, Reagan said repeatedly that he
preferred to change discriminatory
laws rather than to support the Equal
Rights Amendment. While Peachee
heads that effort in states, a Justice
Department task force is looking into
what changes are needed at the federal
