Sadie Cohen, the 80-year-old rolling homeless woman who sought shelter riding RTD buses, has come in from the cold. Cohen, whose predicament was reported in a recent Times article, has moved into a low-cost Los Angeles women's residence. Time will tell how permanent the arrangement will be for the independent-minded Cohen. But she said Monday that she is pleased with her room, which she described as "clean, solid and safe." "It's wonderful," she said. "I'm so grateful."

A Pacific Palisades lawyer whose car struck and killed two women as they crossed a Santa Monica street was sentenced Thursday to 120 days of house arrest and ordered not to talk on her cell phone while driving. Cheryl Chadwick, 46, was charged with two misdemeanor manslaughter counts after fatally injuring Mariya Diment, 70, and Liya Murkes, 71, a year ago. The home detention, which will be monitored electronically, is in lieu of a 90-day jail term.

The YWCA will remodel two houses this summer using a $35,000 federal grant to provide affordable temporary housing for 10 to 12 single women. Director Beverly Glen said the North Orange County YWCA wants to house women for six to 18 months and will help women who are "at risk of being homeless," rather than already on the streets. "What we are trying to do is prevent homelessness," Glen said.

House Republicans called their tax bill a boon for American women at home and in the workplace, enlisting a newly promoted female party leader to support the claim. "The only people who think this tax-relief bill is not good for women are those who don't believe we women can manage our own money. And that thinking is certainly passe," said Rep. Jennifer Dunn (R-Wash.) in the Republicans' radio address Saturday.

To increase housing available to women with modest incomes, the City Council has approved a plan to add 48 studio apartments to a YWCA building and will lend the organization $900,000. Two of the seven council members, Ted R. Moreno and Tony Espinoza, opposed the project, arguing that it would contribute to overcrowding and was a poor use of city funds. "We've indicated we have a $10-million deficit" in the city budget, Moreno said. "Why are we loaning out $900,000?"

Government medical research is so sexually biased that even male laboratory rats are the preferred animal for studies, according to congressional testimony today. "What it's really saying is, it's OK to put women's health at risk," Rep. Patricia Schroeder (D-Colo.) told the House Energy and Commerce subcommittee on Health and the Environment. She was among critics who say clinical trials and the resulting data are skewed in favor of men.

The first of two CBS comedies debuting tonight, "Women of the House" is for those UFOs who just can't get enough of Delta Burke as brazen, noisy--and don't leave out grating--Suzanne Sugarbaker. If you think Speaker-designate Newt Gingrich is getting to be a load, picture his fellow Georgian Sugarbaker of "Designing Women" in Washington, filling the House seat of her late husband.

Lured by Yellow Page ads promising free services at hundreds of "clinics" across the country, women seeking abortions instead have been confronted with graphic films of bloody fetuses and "counselors" who accuse them of murder, a House panel was told Friday. "At these fake clinics there are no doctors, nurses or other trained health care personnel on site," said Rep. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.), chairman of a House subcommittee that is investigating the centers.
