Julia Ericksen, left, and Mary Dabbs discuss what concerns them about being women. Both are married with small children and have husbands who are sympathetic to their concerns. They feel that women are not given privileges accorded to men, that women are discriminated against and that attitudes about women are not flexible. Several women's liberation groups have been set up locally to encourage women to talk about their problems and work for changes.
