WE, THE WOMEN Nlothing Is Wrong With The Title of 'Housewife' "Has anybody found a better lame than''housewife' to describe lose women who head the coin- )licatect of running a'home, wing a good wife nnd raising good iti/.eas?" asks the New York Worlcl- 1'eiegnun of its women readers. The woman's page of that newspaper goes on to explain that it receives frequent letters from women who say they hate to be called "housewives"—especially on qncsi- ionaires. Through the years I've Vmd a number of women to ask me the same thing. Hut I can't quite understand the feeling. It seems to me any woman ouRht to write the word "housewife" after her name with distinct pride and satisfaction. Query any group of young gi on what their main nmbltlon life is and you'll fiiul the mnjorii) confess they want to be married. Talk to any group of ambitions young career girls and you'll fine that most of them would rather ge a good husband than a fancy office with their name on the door. Most unmarried women apparent ly want to get married either sooi or later. Wily then, once they have acli ieveri their bit! ambition in life should women be ashamed to Mother of Year By Ruth MUIcIt NBA SUff Writer v heir occupation as housewife? Frankly, I don't gel It, 1arria&e Is Fulfillment of Ainliilion When u woman puts house wife i tier her name she is idling Uie vorld she achieved her major u tuition in life. She has a Imsb.iml. She has a home. She wears the no:.I rc.spccled title a woman i-an veiir-the titk* of "Mrs." Why should that be- ilcnnuUiv:? A'hy should a woman luc iiKhium-d of the word housewife? Well, let's break the word down into it.s i\vu larts. There's the word "house" and the word "wife." It isn't likely »ny ! woman feels a sense of inferiority in admitting she is n wife, That's still a pretty cherished word in our language. So the part of Ihe won! that causes mental itngitisti must be tlu word "house." Admittedly, women aren't too fouri of staying in their houses these days. "It's good to get away from home" has become a standard feminine cliche. Fight tor Choice As Site for Olympics May Games Abroad Mr.s. I'earle Owens CUUis (nbovol GO, of l-'t. Worth.
