rrMy 2 3, 1972 Sunday Gaaette-Mail Liberated Women Not So Liberated About Marriage The Women's Liberation Movement and the beautiful blushing bride seem light years apart...but are they really? Apart from bra-burning, placard-carrying fringes on one side of the Movement, and t h e t o o - c o n t e n t , non- motivated fringes on.the other side, there is a growing and serious segment of the female population involved in rethinking their traditional roles. And about 2,320,000 of this population will become brides this year. Witness the signs of nuptial liberation: Couples write their own services with a personal meaning and their own promises. They marry in back-to- nature settings like the woods, mountaintops, beautiful gardens or lakesides. They opt for non-traditional wedding dress--far Eastern robes, Mexican wedding dresses, or simply their favorite most comfortable clothes. Mrs. To Be Used With Mate's Name * According to the standard rules of etiquette, a married woman never correctly refers to herself, signs her name, or is introduced or addressed as Mrs. Mary Green in private life. She is either Mary Green or Mrs. John Green. They honeymoon hitch-. hiking through Euroe, or camping across the U. S. * * * WITH IT all, the liberated bride is more radiant and beautiful than ever before.If you think about it, it follows that she cares more deeply about her appearance than her non-liberated sisters of the past. She is concernd with the natural, healthy beauty of her skin and hair, not surface coverups and stiff don't-touch- me hairstyles. This does not mean zero makeup and hair allowed to fly however it will, but a thoughtful consideration of makeup and hair care needs--from both treatment and cosmetic values. All today's bride takes on her honeymoon is an Air Brush styling dryer (the fastest one she can find), an instant hairsetter because a liberated woman would never entertain even the thought of sleeping in rollers, and conditioner to keep her hair silky and lustrous. And her look is natural,uncontrived,beautiful. Once home, the newthinking bride becomes the liberated homemaker. If her husband likes to cook, he should; if she likes to work, she should. So, more than simply blushing and beautiful, today's new bride is a woman who thinks of herself as intelligent and equal. Her thinking will affect her new husband, her family, her job.home and most of all, herself. --_, ..-v- -.,;·.. c-s;~u^'-*j f exc ivC.d I \ ·:'(J.(f VA · ,' .,·;; ·· \\,: i ictmivelti OU.M.,.
