Women can change government
trends which have hurt them, if they
become more politically active,
women's rights activist and former
congresswoman Bella Abzug said
"We have allowed ourselves to
remain powerless politically," Abzug
told about 450 people at the Power Cen-
ABZUG joined two other women's
rights activists at "Women Speak,"
sponsored by the Friends for Women's
Credit and the University's Women's
Abzug said that a "gender gap",dif-
ference of opinion between men and
women on important issues, was par-
ticularly evident during the 1980
"Seven percent fewer women voted
for (Reagan) than men," she said.
BUT ABZUG stressed that this at-
titude is nothing new. "Our gender gap
has been showing for a hell of a long
time," she said, adding that
historically, women and men have felt
differently about issues such as
military spending and social programs.
Women have permitted this "gender
gap" by remaining politically inactive,
and therefore live with a system that
ignores their political interests, she
The Reagan administration policies
are particularly bad for women, such
as those which take away money from
child support, welfare, and other social
service: programs to put into military
spending, she said.
"Supply side economics really keeps
supplying the Pentagon, and batters
women and children," she said.
Robin Morgan, an editor at Ms.
Magazine, and social activist Eleanor
Holmes Norton, from Georgetown
University, also spoke on women's
issues last night.
