More Iowa Women Are Entering Politics By Chris Wagner (Drake University Journalism Student) DES MOINES - More and more Iowa women are entering politics. In 1965 six women were in the Iowa Legislature. Last year, 14 women were elected to the legislature, including four senators and 10 representatives. Rep. Joan Lipsky, a Republican from Cedar Rapids, said one reason she decided to go into politics was because she felt women were not being adequately represented in state government. Rep. Mary O'Halloran, a Democrat of Cedar Falls, doesn't think women should be asked why they go into politics. "Men are never asked why they go into politics. Why should women be asked that question?" O'Halloran said Iowa is a very progressive state because it has passed several laws recently that have reduced discrimination against women. She cited a rape reform law that makes it illegal for a woman's past to be used against her in court and a law that increased the inheritance tax exemption for widows. Iowa also has passed a law that prohibits discrimination against women when applying for credit, and was one of the first states to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment. "Iowa has one of the strongest and largest women's Fred Reyes of the STORM LAKE HEARING AID SERVICE Announces HEARING AID SERVICE So that we can better service our users, we will be available for Hearing Aid Service the second Friday of every month starting Friday, April 9, 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the City Hotel, This will be a continuous service for the Carroll and surrounding area.

Svoboda attributed the strength of the 5,000-member caucus to Roxanne Conlin, who is assistant attorney general and was chairman of the caucus from 1971 to 1975. "She was a very strong and powerful leader who really unified us," said Svoboda, a member of the caucus. Iowa's female legislators feel strongly about many issues, including women's rights, conservation and Watergate. Sen. Minnette Doderer, a Democrat from Iowa City, is an advocate of women's rights. "Women must prove their competence to get elected, but men don't have to prove theirs," said Doderer. Doderer is interested in environmental issues and is president pro tern of the Iowa Senate. She ran for lieutenant governor in 1972 and lost but said she learned a lot from the experience. Sen. Elizabeth Shaw, a v Republican from Davenport, said the hardest thing for her to realize was that she couldn't be a perfect wife, mother and legislator at the same time. "I had to make some sacrifices like seeing my family less and having a messy house once in a while, but it was worth it in the long run," said Shaw. Shaw, who also practices law in Davenport, has worked to get more state funding for private schools. Another advocate of women's right is Rep. O'Halloran. "1 am primarily concerned with preserving and protecting women's rights as human beings," said O'Halloran. She said women have trouble being accepted in politics because politics has traditionally been a male-dominated field." O'Halloran is chairman of the House Energy Committee. O'Halloran expressed concern about the effect Watergate has had on today's youth. "I think today's young people have become very cynical and apathetic about politics as a result of Watergate," said O'Halloran. She said a lot of responsibility rests on today's politicians because they are the ones who must be good "role models" for future politicians.

Q Wednesday, April 7, 1976 7 "If we set a poor example for young people by being corrupt and dishonest, how can we expect them to be any different?" said O'Halloran. Rep. Svoboda is concerned with agricultural issues since she represents a rural area. She is on the House Agricultural Committee and has supported a bill that would preserve the family farm by limiting the land that corporations can buy. The first women to be elected to a stale public office in Iowa was May Francis, a Republican picked as superintendent of public instruction in 1920. Carolyn Pendray was the first woman to be elected to the Iowa House in 1928. Pendray, a Democrat from Maquoketa, was an advocate of women's rights and public education. Pendray was also the first woman to be elected to the Iowa Senate in 1932. What advice do Iowa's female legislators have for women following their footsteps? "You must plunge into politics and (you) cannot stop to analyze your chances or you will never do anything," said Doderer. Shaw said it is important for a woman to be involved in local politics before she runs for state offices so she will have some political experience and will be known in her community. As Iowa women become more active in all areas of state government, Rep. Lipsky said she would not be surprised to see a woman run for governor of Iowa soon.
