PITTSBURGH COUNCIL OF CATHOLIC WOMEN OF THE N. C. C. W.,

Pittsburgh, Pa., March 19, 1948. Hon. CHAUNCEY W. REED, Acting Chairman, Subcommittee on the Judiciary,

House of Representatives, Washington 25, D. C. HONORABLE DEAR SIR: The Pittsburgh Council of Catholic Women, representing approximately 25,000 Catholic women, at a recent meeting of the board of directors passed the following resolutions :

EQUAL-RIGHTS AMENDMENT

We oppose the so-called equal-rights amendment because of “unjust legal discriminations against women which should be removed from the Federal and State books. A Federal law should also be passed to supplement the wages-hours law and guarantee to women pay equal with men for equal kinds of work. The equal-rights amendment would nullify laws now existing for the protection of women in work and in family life.

STATUS OF WOMEN

We heartily approve the proposal to establish a Commission on the Legal Status of Women in the United States, in pursuit of the policy that in law and its administration no distinction on the basis of sex should be made except such as are reasonably justified by differences in physical structure, biological, or social function.

We would ask that these resolutions be incorporated in the record of hearings on these two bills. Respectfully yours,

PITTSBURGH COUNCIL OF CATHOLIC WOMEN,

MARGARET M. VIEHMAN, President. Mr. REED. Telegrams have been received from the following persons and groups in support of the bills to create a Commission on the Legal Status of Women: Helen Blanchard, national director, Congress of Women's Auxiliaries, CIO.
