At precisely 7 a.m. every Wednesday, four women appear at Hof's Hut restaurant across from John Wayne Airport. They meet to discuss and debate for two hours the state of small business in California. Between sips of coffee, the women--all Orange County small-business owners in their 30s and 40s--debate pending legislation that could hamper their companies and others like them.

The comments of state Sen. Ed Davis (R-Santa Clarita) in regard to the proposed tougher penalties for spousal rapists were not only ignorant but degrading to women and himself (Aug. 15). Your article quoted Davis describing the Legislature as "terrorized of late by lobbies of women" and referring to the lobbyists as "women that men would never touch." Davis obviously feels threatened by the increasing political and professional power that women are gaining. In an attempt to keep his chauvinistic world in order, Davis and other opponents of this bill would have husbands continue to subjugate their wives bodily and mentally under state sanction.

Among the droves of conservative Christian lobbyists arguing their points of view in Washington, one relatively little-known group has a simple formula for setting itself apart from the crowd: Don't give an inch. Concerned Women for America always takes the most uncompromising positions. The group, founded 25 years ago in San Diego, almost never settles for half a loaf. And at the first hint of backsliding, it attacks its conservative comrades with the same fury it unleashes on liberals.

Once a month when the Legislature is in session, a group of Sacramento's most powerful lobbyists meets privately for lunch at a popular Chinese restaurant near the state Capitol--and the only men allowed are the waiters. All 30 or so of the lobbyists are women, some of them with six-figure salaries who represent blue-chip clients. Women legislators, whose votes the lobbyists seek to influence, also attend the luncheons.
