The Range(Continued from Page 7) JIM WYMAN Kicks Things Off MORNINGS FROM .^\JII% t to women to press for enforcement of the laws where necessary.... One of the most difficult areas to deal with is the need o change employer attitudes ... perhaps the overriding factors in this regard are the myths that employers, policymakers and others in our society have unfairly associated with the worklife patterns of women. "One such myth is that women are not seriously attached to the labor force as tiey work only for 'pocket money'. "However, of the 33 million women in the labor force in March 1972, more than half were working because of pressing economic need. These women comprise a group who are either single, widowed, divorced, separated or married to men with incomes of less than $5,000 a year. "Some progress is being made concerning employer attitudes," says the report.
