In tfie 45 minute lecture, foltowed by a question and answer period, Wed¬ dington covered her ex¬ periences and the feelings she encountered in the White fkxise. Sfie also talked about women of the past and worrien of the past and women in rela¬ tion to the opportunities available for them today. She described her feelings of arriv¬ ing at tfie White House every moming as "one of power since I was coming from Texas and because I was representing women." After giving i brief t^tory of ttie country in srela- tton to women, and describing: several rooms of tfie White > House, Weddington stated, > Tfie Wfilte House becomes a place of people wfio have made the country." Contrasting the last four years and now showed the benefit of a two fold philosophy which gave every women a chotoe, and the desire to create a work! where the best talents of men and women coukj con¬ tribute to every way of life. The past lias also shown an in¬ crease in affirmative action I^ans for women. Weddington pointed to tlie increase in appointments for women in fiigher courts; in tfie Departments of Housing and Urban Development, Educa¬ tton, and in Health, Educatton and Welfare—all made under the Carter administratton. She cited tfie relatively new pro¬ grams for women in business, the Family Violence and Wife Abuse programs, tfie oppor¬ tunities extended to women in tfie military and the pregiancy disability bill, all of which she helped push while in offtoe and which are now in jeopardy. Ms. Weddington addressed the question, tl)an Reagan real¬ ly make women disappear?" She praised him for appointing Sandra OConner as the first ' woman Supreme Court justtoe, but feels that the phasing out of women in business, among other factors, takes away the momentum that had once been there for women. Weddington stated, "Part of the attitude of .moving backward, not forward, is felt by some women: To others tfiere is no way to 'go home' again." The recent release of two new books. How to Drese women must ptok their leaders. "We as women should call at¬ tention to ourselves," affirms Ms. Weddington. She quoted from a book entitled. Games Mother Never Taught You, which stresses gamesmanship for women. As Weddington expressed, the book points out that, "... women are too fair and in¬ dividualists, while men are just naturally competitive. Women must leam to play by the mles." for Socceae, and anotfier one by George Gilbert, "do much to push ttie roles of women to the background," says Wed¬ dington. Gilberfs book, in par¬ ticular, carries tlie underlying ttieme tliat the economto pro¬ blems of today are the result of women who work. The emergerKe of these two books since Reagan has been in office emphasizes tfiat Weddington feds are backward steps for , women. Finally Weddington covered the issue of the "changing of the guar^" and the preparation for it. Preparation includes the development of "inskie and out¬ skle skills." Weddington ex¬ plains tfiat ttie decision of who gets promoted is determined l)y ttiose on ttie outside who are willing to tielp. "Women need ttiink of tliemselves as potential leaders." Stie pointed out that now, however, "there is a sense of disservice to women." Wed¬ dington feels ttiat the expecta¬ tion level for women has gone up tremendously and that women are still not free from home or personal relationship pressures Women face the qut;slions. "How do we make decisions and have the best of lx>th workk?" Weddington states that Sarah Weddington Stie informed, "Ttie path of leadership requires taking risks, aiming at a target, and timing. For me, taking this path lias l)een rewarding because it has given me the chance to make a difference for women, to give them options for the 80's. This p>ath has some costs but it's the best thing anyone can do." She went on to corKlude, "When we can do that, men and women can share. L.et's remcmhwr the best of the traditional, but let's remember thc'bes. we can be."
