women's party, has been organizing an
Illinois brancit of the party. Prepara
tions will be made for representation
of Illinois, as well as all other states,
at a national conference to Abe held at
'Washington Novoniber 11 and 12 to
frame a legislative program.
Illinois was selected as the objec
tive of the first mission by national
headquarters, because "it was ibeliev
ed that Illinois was hi a position to
affect the entire west and midwest,"
according to 'liss Pollitzer.
Constitutional amendments which
the organization is seeking to have
passed by all states to guarantee
equal political, civil and legal rights
for women in each case will contain
this clause, according to Miss Pollit
zer: "This act will not affect laws
regulating the affairs of women in in
dustry." This clause was pointed out
because the effect of the legislation
proposed by the party upon legisla
tion designed to safeguard women in
industry has been tiestioned.
\liss -Pollitzer said that the siupreme
court of the United States has repeat
edly sustained special welfare legis
lation for women even when it was
argued that such legislation was in
direct violation of the fourteenth
amendment to the 'United 'States con
The legal "discrimination" which
the party is assailin; has its roots in
the old- common law under which a
married woman was regarded as a
"Femme couverte," or "covered wo
man," whose rights were vested in her
husband, while he lived. Miss 'Pullit
ier stated. "Though the effect of'this
legal tradition from feudal times has
been modilled in some states by more
modern legislation, it survives to a
verying degree," she added.
"in some states a man can dispose
of his wife's inherited property," said
Miss Pollitzer. "Laws often give a
woman's earnings to her husband, al
low him to collect damages for het
injuries, and give him the earnings
control and custody of their child
The woman's party is organizing to
light this condition by changing spe
ci-icl laws and by changing tradition.'
The party has organized 25 profes
sional councils, including a home
makers council. Mrs. Minnie Mad
dern Fiske and Miss Mary Shaw head
the theatrical council; Miss Zong
Gale, of Portage, Wis., the novelist
heads the writers' council; Dr. Mars
O'.Malley, clinical director of St
Elizabeth's hospital, Washington, tht
physicians' council, and .Miss Emma
Gillett, dean of the Washington Col
lege of Law, 'Washington, the law
yers' council. Fourteen women law
yers are coniling all state laws ii
