Reagan hires too few
women, feminists say
WASHINGTON (AP) - Feminist
groups accused President Reagan
yesterday of trying to hide a dismal
record on women's issues by
misrepresenting his appointments to
government jobs and unfairly claiming
credit for legislative achievements.
Judy Goldsmith, president of the
National Organiztion for Women, said
Reagan's assertion Tuesday that his
administration had done much for
women was ludicrous.
THE NATIONAL Women's Political
Caucus said its tally of Reagan's ap-
pointments of women puts him behind
former President Carter in important
categories. Reagan said he is way
ahead of Carter in appointing women to
government posts in the first two years
of the presidency.
Patricia Reuss, legislative director of
the women Equity Action League, said
Reagan is "taking credit for things he
had nothing to do with" in regard to
taxes, Individual Retirement Accounts
and child care.
At his nationally broadcast news con-
ference Tuesday night, Reagan rejec-
ted a suggestion that the absence of
women on his newly appointed, 12-
member advisory commission on Cen-
tral America lent weight to charges
that he is insensitive to women.
HE SAID HIS administration had
named more than 1,000 women to
"executive positions here in gover-
nment," three women members of the
Cabinet and a Supreme Court justice.
"It's just a case of our record isn't
known," he said.
Goldsmith, a harsh Reagan critic,
said she was amazed by the president's
"President Reagan's statement last
night was outrageous and insulting,"
she said in an interview. "His assertion
that the administration has helped
.women is ludicrous. It would be laughable
if it weren't such a tragic example of
Reagan's blindness to women.
DURING REAGAN'S first two years
as president, the National Women's
Political Caucus, said had named 63

Blondes have more fun?
B RITAIN'S HOUSE of Lords has ruled that blondes do not have more fun,
especially when it comes to courts and taxes. Lawyer Ann Mallalieu
said she could not wear her court attire anywhere else because the required
black suits, skirts, shoes, and white blousesmade her look dowdy and did not
suit her fair complexion. She claimed she was entitled to tax relief for
having to buy it, and a court agreed that she could claim $825 for clothes
bought in 1976-77. But a panel of law lords ruled against Mallalieu yesterday.
Said one lord, "It would be absurd to suppose that there exists one law for the
blonde barrister who lacks a wardrobe of dark clothes and another for the
brunette barrister, whose wardrobe of everyday clothes contains many
dresses suitable for court appearances."
