a film by Ann Fessler

0004

01:01:04:28/01:01:08:06

I was 15 that summer.

0005

01:01:06:23/01:01:09:00

You know, we went out.

I don't even remember what we did.

0006

01:01:09:05/ 01:01:13:06

Probably drove around in his car.

He had a baby blue 57 Chevy.

0007

01:01:13:14/ 01:01:18:05

And riding in that car, I felt really important.

Wow, this is what dating is like.

0008

01:01:25:00/01:01:27:25

I was in High School, my senior year.

0009

01:01:28:00/01:01:31:08 

and there was a guy that

moved to town  that

0010

01:01:32:06/01:01:36:26

all the girls just thought

was so cute, and so cool,

0011

01:01:37:05/01:01:41:15 

and talked about and whispered,

"Weren't his blue eyes so pretty."

0012

01:01:42:03/ 01:01:45:15

And he drove a really hot car,

which was real important at the time,

0013

01:01:45:21/ 01:01:49:10

beautiful, fast, noisy ...

because noisy was important too.

0014

01:01:50:28/01:01:56:01

He was very cool. And I was cool because

I was going out with this cool guy.

0015

01:01:59:10/01:02:04:01

Right after I graduated from high school,

things were getting bad in Vietnam.

0016

01:02:04:05/01:02:07:14

So I thought I could help the Army

and our country,

0017

01:02:07:16/01:02:09:27

and I could also get a good education.

0018

01:02:10:15/01:02:12:05

So I joined the Army.

0019

01:02:12:13/ 01:02:16:16

There at Fort Sam Houston

  I met a soldier that had been injured.

0020

01:02:16:25/01:02:20:06

  I fell in love with him instantly.

 He looked like Dean Martin.

0021

01:02:22:27/01:02:24:15

I was a junior in high school

0022

01:02:25:03/01:02:30:13

and I had been going with Stan

for a little bit over two years.

0023

01:02:30:20/01:02:34:00

We'd been having relations for a while.

0024

01:02:34:18/01:02:36:14

 We went to the junior prom,

I can remember,

0025

01:02:36:25/01:02:38:15

and I'm sure that was "the night".

0026

01:02:40:19/01:02:42:22

We had a really strong romance going on

 

0027

01:02:42:24/01:02:45:23    

and it was really difficult because                                    

he's white and I'm black.

0028

01:02:46:13/01:02:49:18

I got pregnant coming up for

the weekend, to spend with him,

0029

01:02:50:04/01:02:53:04

 and he took me to see Dionne Warwick.

0030

01:02:58:22/01:03:02:06

Things began to get fairly

  physical between us,

0031

01:03:02:08/01:03:05:20

and I had never entertained

the idea of sex before

0032

01:03:05:21/01:03:10:03

because it just wasn't done

in our family.

0033

01:03:10:04/01:03:11:11

  We never even were aloud to say the word

pregnant, we had to say "expecting".

0034

01:03:17:04/01:03:20:25

I was between my junior and senior year

in college  when I got pregnant.

0035

01:03:21:00/01:03:25:21

You know, I was really stupid, OK?

Very stupid.

0036

01:03:26:13/01:03:30:20

  He said, "Well, lets just get some

  bread and cheese and wine

0037

01:03:30:22/01:03:32:23

 and I'll show you where I live."

0038

01:03:41:06/01:03:46:01

 Marriage and Family Living Series

HOW MUCH AFFECTION?

0039

01:03:56:00/01:04:0108

"Mary, Mary, Mary ... Mary wait!

I'm sorry Mary."

0040

01:04:04:13/01:04:06:00

"Did you have a nice time dear?"

0041

01:04:07:27/01:04:11:26

"Well, you don't look much like a girl

who's been out  having a wonderful evening.

0042

01:04:12:18/01:04:14:06

"Oh Mom."

0043

01:04:14:09/01:04:18:18

"Now here, what's the matter dear?" 

0044

01:04:19:22/01:04:22:11

"Do you remember when you told me

that I might ...

0045

01:04:23:00/01:04:25:04

I might have such strong feelings about a boy

0046

01:04:25:06/01:04:27:21

that it might be hard for me

  to decide what's right to do?"

0047

01:04:28:08/01:04:32:00

"Well, yes, I remember. Why?"

0048

01:04:32:20/01:04:35:00

"Well, it was something like that

tonight with Jeff.

0049

01:04:36:18/01:04:38:24

 On our way home

we stopped and parked.

0050

01:04:40:22/01:04:44:20

  And then things seemed to happen,

until we nearly.... "

0051

01:04:47:00/01:04:48:10

"Well, it was so close."

0052

01:04:49:14/01:04:51:22

"Suddenly I realized what

 we were about to do.

0053

01:04:53:03/01:04:54:27

I asked Jeff to take me home.

0054

01:04:56:14/01:04:58:14

 I guess he felt ashamed too.

0055

01:04:29:08/01:05:01:10

He said he was sorry, that it was his fault."

0056

01:05:02:04/01:05:04:13

"Do you think it was his fault?"

0057

01:05:16:04/01:05:17:10

"All things considered,

0058

01:05:18:17/01:05:21:25

 it's the girl who sets the

level of conduct on a date.

0059

01:05:28:13/01:05:33:15

 You create or prevent situations

 of sexual arousal and demands."

0060

01:05:35:06/01:05:36:22

 I mean, things were a lot different then.

0061

01:05:37:14/01:05:41:03

And no one talked about sex.

There was no sex education in school.

0062

01:05:47:17/01:05:50:27

Sex was never discussed in those days.

0063

01:05:51:06/01:05:53:14

I can see my mother sitting there knitting.

0064

01:05:53:15/01:05:57:05

She would knit, knit, knit,

  knit, knit, to avoid conversation.

0065

01:05:57:16/01:06:02:11

And I remember her knitting away there,

and all of a sudden I said to her

0066

01:06:02:23/01:06:04:21

 "What is sexual intercourse?" 

0067

01:06:04:25/01:06:09:02

 And she looked me right in the eye and said,

"Don't bother me I'm counting."

0068

01:06:10:05/01:06:15:10

In 6th grade we watched a film.

I didn't understand it.

0069

01:06:15:25/01:06:21:20

I mean it was just. the man has the sperm

and the woman has the egg, or whatever,

0070

01:06:21:22/01:06:25:12

  and somehow or another they make a baby

 but they didn't tell you,  you know,

0071

01:06:25:14/01:06:27:05

how it was really done.

0072

01:06:28:10/01:06:32:27

  I had older parents that were

  scared to death to talk about sex,

0073

01:06:33:05/01:06:35:11

scared to death to talk about anything.

0074

01:06:36:25/01:06:41:18

 I never had the sex talk with my mother.

I don't know that she ever said the word sex.

0075

01:06:44:14/01:06:47:29

We lived a very puritanical, you know,

Beaver Cleaver lifestyle.

0076

01:06:48:01:/01:06:20:29

and it just  wasn't anything

that was ever discussed.

0077

01:06:52:08/01:06:56:18

"Jeannie, when do you think

I'll start having periods too?"

0078

01:06:57:01:/01:06:59:26

"Oh, I don't know, pretty soon I suppose.

0079

01:07:01::06/01:07:03:03

I was thirteen when I started.

0080

01:07:03:19/01:07:07:04

I think I was in the 5th or 6th grade

and I went to the bathroom

0081

01:07:07:08/01:07:10:17

and I pulled my panties down

and they had blood on them.

0082

01:07:10:18/01:07:13:10

I started screaming because

I didn't know what was going on.

 

0083

01:07:13:26/01:07:16:03

"Many of you girls haven't

 started to menstruate yet,

0084

01:07:16:10/01:07:20:14

but when you do you will  want to use

a sanitary napkin to absorb the flow."

0085

01:07:20:15/01:07:22:29

They called my mother; she came

and picked me up from school.

0086

01:07:23:04/01:07:26:04

She handed me a bag and told me

to go in the bathroom and put it on.

0087

01:07:26:11/01:07:31:06

I sat in that bathroom, probably an hour,

trying to figure out how all this mess worked.

0088

01:07:31:08/01:07:35:23

There was a stretchy belt and it had these

two clamps on it,  and then these pads,

0089

01:07:35:28/01:07:37:19

  it scared me to death.

0090

01:07:38:01:/01:07:41:12

I'm mean, certainly we knew that, you know,

if you had sex you could get pregnant.

0091

01:07:41:13/01:07:42:23

I wasn't that naïve.

0092

01:07:43:24/01:07:46:22

"Soon, Molly will be a young woman, having dates,

0093

01:07:47:18/01:07:50:09

  going to dances in lovely romantic dresses,

0094

01:07:50:28/01:07:53:06

 and making new and important friends."

0095

01:07:53:24/01:07:57:29

"There are so many wonderful

 things to look forward to."

0096

01:08:03:26/01:08:07:22

"Growing up, it's an exciting time."

0097

01:08:17:29/01:08:20:16

 I could tell that he knew a little bit more,

0098

01:08:20:17/01:08:25:23

and as ridiculous as it sounds,

I was learning from him.

0099

01:08:30:00/01:08:32:28

 There was no birth control, except abstinence.

0100

01:08:33:12/01:08:34:13

Good luck with that one.

0101:

01:08:35:06/01:08:39:21

  Condoms were kept behind the

 counters in drug stores,

0102

01:08:39:19/01:08:43:23

  and boys were embarrassed

to have to ask the Druggist,

0103

01:08:43:28/01:08:48:10

  let alone girls going in and asking for them,

  would be totally unheard of.

0104

01:08:49:13/01:08:53:01:

He knew all about the rhythm method

so he asked me when I last had my period.

0105

01:08:53:02/01:08:56:07

  So that's why it was OK

 to have sex without any condom.

0106

01:08:56:09/01:08:58:09

 Because what else was there in 1963?

0107

01:08:58:22/01:09:00:12

I guess there was a diaphragm

but who knew?

0108

01:09:01:;23/01:09:04:15

  You know, the birth control pill

was on the market,

0109

01:09:04:28/01:09:07:27

  but in those days, you

really had to be married.

 

0110

01:09:09:06/01:09:13:22

I started gaining weight,

and I missed my second period,

0111

01:09:14:24/01:09:16:19

  and I still tried to deny it.

0112

01:09:17:22/01:09:22:29

  I was using safety pins in the back of my skirt

  to accommodate my expanding waist.

0113

01:09:23:06/01:09:27:27

So I started off with safety pins, and then

bigger and bigger, and then diaper pins.

0114

01:09:27:21/01:09:32:00

And the biggest pin I got to was ...

at that time kilts were very popular.

0115

01:09:32:10/01:09:36:06

Remember those plaid pleated kilts

and they had the giant pin?

0116

01:09:36:27/01:09:39:16

That was the last frontier,

was the Kilt pin.

0117

01:09:40:17/01:09:44:14

And I told my boyfriend that I missed a period.

0118

01:09:44:15/01:09:49:04

And you could tell, right away, that

he didn't really want to be bothered.

0119

01:09:50:08/01:09:53:10

"Oh Jeff, isn't it a wonderful night?"

0120

01:09:54:27/01:9:58:03

We went out and we ordered wedding rings.

0121

01:9:59:02/01:10:01::22

 And we were having them engraved...

0122

 

01:10:02:08/01:10:04:28

 and I don't believe those rings

were ever picked up.

0123

01:10:04:29/01:10:07:15

"You know, we've been going out f

or quite a while now, haven't we?"

0124

01:10:07:21/01:10:10:21

I very much remember him in the

living room of my grandparent's

0125

01:10:10:22/01:10:13:25

 saying to me "Sue, I'll marry you,

 I will marry you."

0126

01:10:13:26/01:10:15:07

What, are you out of your mind?

0127

01:10:15:08/01:10:18:14

You know you're 18,

I wasn't even 17, I was 16.

0128

01:10:18:24/01:10:20:28

And it was then that he told me,

0129

01:10:21:04/01:10:24:22

that the year before he had gotten

another girl pregnant.

0130

01:10:24:29/01:10:28:14

 That baby had been surrendered the

 year before at the same agency.

0131

01:10:30:23/01:10:35:28

My parents were not happy about it.

My parents are Holocaust survivors.

0132

01:10:36:02/01:10:40:17

 I was raised very strictly.

 My daddy called me a whore.

0133

01:10:41:00/01:10:44:12

I don't remember my father finding out.

I do remember him coming up stairs.

0134

01:10:44:13/01:10:47:04

My father was very Catholic.

He didn't use birth control...

0135

01:10:47:08/01:10:50:23

 He said, "Is it too late for us to

 do something about this?"

0136

01:10:52:21/01:10:56:16

 My dad had been commuting back and

 forth from Ft. Worth to Dallas...

0137

01:10:57:08/ 01:11:00:13

My parents made the decision

  that this would be a good time

0138

01:11:01:14/01:11:03:16

for them to go ahead and move,

  so that nobody would know.

0139

01:11:10:01:/01:11:13:08

My Mother had me go to the bathroom.

0140

01:11:13:21/01:11:19:00

She administered to me a douche

that was very painful.

0141

01:11:19:21/01:11:24:14

Found out later what she had used

was Lysol in the brown bottle...

0142

01:11:25:16/ 01:11:30:09

and I blocked that out of my mind, 

for twenty-something years.

0143

01:11:30:25/01:11:32:22

One day my husband was cleaning

0144

01:11:33:03/01:11:36:23

 and I smelled the Lysol in the brown

 bottle and it took me back.

0145

01:11:46:07/01:11:52:09

Ours is rich and variant land.

We are a prospering people.

0146

01:11:52:26/01:11:56:13

Wherever we live, or earn our

  livelihood ...

0147

01:11:56:26/01:12:01::14

 we have bounties beyond those

 known the people of any other day.

0148

01:12:02:17/01:12:06:29

And as responsible as anyone else

for the care of these bounties,

0149

01:12:07:16/01:12:11:09

 is the woman in the American home."

0150

01:12:13:18/01:12:19:10

"Meeting the unexpected happenings

 that any family has always to expect."

0151

01:12:23:05/01:12:28:19

"There are times when she feels lonely

 in this responsibility to her family.

0152

01:12:29:15/01:12:34:21

Yet she carries it in ways that are varied,

in ways that are many."

0153

01:12:35:11/01:12:38:21

I love my mother, but I think

it was more important to her,

0154

01:12:38:25/01:12:42:00

perhaps at the time, that the neighbors

didn't think we were bad people,

0155

01:12:42:09/01:12:43:22

or that she was a bad mother.

0156

01:12:44:26/01:12:49:18

My mom treated it like it was

her personal tragedy.

0157

01:12:50:10/01:12:54:03

My mother actually said, it's a

cliché but she actually said,

0158

01:12:54:05/01:12:56:12

"What am I going to tell the neighbors?"

0159

01:12:57:01:/01:12:59:29

My parent's generation,

  that "greatest generation" ...

0160

01:13:01:05/01:13:03:00

that's what they thought ...

It didn't happen to nice girls.

0161

01:13:03:01:/01:13:04:17

But nice girls do get pregnant.

0162

01:13:05:22/01:13:09:28

My mother and my father both

came from very poor families.

0163

01:13:10:05/01:13:14:13

But, by the time I was in high school

they were very affluent.

0164

01:13:14:14/01:13:16:26

They went on nice vacations

and they had a nice life

0165

01:13:169:27/01:13:20:04

and we had drapes that somebody

designed for our house ...

0166

01:13:20:05/01:13:23:04

you know, things like that, that in

my town were quite hoity-toity.

0167

01:13:23:09/01:13:26:06

When I got pregnant it was like

slipping back a generation.

0168

01:13:26:07/01:13:27:26

The climbing that they had done,

0169

01:13:28:06/01:13:30:28

and their aspirations were

suddenly under threat.

0170

01:13:31:05/01:13:34:19

 They were going to be those

 people they looked down on.

0171

01:13:37:08/01:13:40:09

"New drapes, new rugs, oh this is fun.

0172

01:13:43:02/01:13:49:09

 It's nice to have a telephone to

 blend with my new drapes and rug,

0173

01:13:49:10/01:13:53:06

 a living room that's all our own.

0174

01:14:23:09/01:14:28:14

   The bedroom should be

  changed completely too.

0175

01:14:29:21/01:14:35:01:

   Perhaps a color scheme of gold and blue."

0176

01:14:35:19/01:14:38:17

  There was a clear social category

for unwed mothers

0177

01:14:39:03/01:14:41:08

and that was the slut category.

0178

01:14:41:09/01:14:44:08

That was the "you must not come

from a very good home category".

01:79

01:14:45:15/01:14:49:20

  I think it was impossible for my parents

to get past those feelings

0180

01:14:50:00/01:14:52:24

and to see me as somebody

who needed some help from them.

0181

01:14:54:11/01:14:58:23

  I just, I knew from that time on

that probably my life, and Tony's life,

0182

01:14:58:24/01:15:03:16

would never, ever be the same.

An innocent time was over for us.

0183

01:15:03:29/01:15:03:22

When we told my mom and dad

we had something to tell them

0184

01:15:06:23/01:15:09:17

and I think they kind of knew...

they were not happy,

0185

01:15:09:25/01:15:12:04

you know, "How could their daughter,

how could their little girl,

0186

01:15:12:05/01:15:14:11

how could this happen to them?"

0187

01:15:15:27/01:15:19:03

The decision was made

that I would be sent away

0188

01:15:19:04/01:15:23:02

and that our baby would be

put up for adoption.

0189

01:15:23:05/01:15:25:23

I just felt like I had done this horrific thing,

0190

01:15:25:24/01:15:29:28

and I was not in any position to

protest or say what I wanted.

0191

01:15:30:03/01:15:32:24

Certainly, I wasn't in any position to say,

0192

01:15:33:04/01:15:37:19

"Is there any way that my baby

wouldn't have to be taken?"

0193

01:15:37:20/01:15:39:20

I decide to go see my priest

0194

01:15:39:21/01:15:42:22

and he said, "I wouldn't  advise you

to marry."  And I asked him why.

0195

01:15:42:29/01:15:47:08

And he said, "If you don't marry a Catholic

man, there is only one other option,

0196

01:15:47:09/01:15:50:12

or your baby is going to stay in

Purgatory when she dies."

01:97

01:15:50:15/01:15:53:28

And I said, "You mean adoption?"

And he said, "Yes".

0198

01:15:53:25/01:15:56:13

 N.Y. FOUNDLING HOSPITAL

0199

01:15:54:01:/01:15:58:25

It was very apparent to me that

whatever was going to happen,

0200

01:15:58:26/01:16:01::29

that the worst possible  thing

that could happen would be

0201

01:16:02:04/01:16:05:22

if my child ended up with me.

0202

01:16:09:05/01:16:10:24

They called the doctor and the doctor said,

0203

01:16:10:25/01:16:14:03

"Well, you sent her away to

 a home for unwed mothers,

0204

01:16:14:04/01:16:17:16

  and she gives the child up,

and it will all blow over.

0205

01:16:19:25/01:16:21:06

It had to be secret.

0206

01:16:21:24/01:16:25:06

It's like, you have no idea what

things were like in the 60s.

0207

01:16:25:09/01:16:29:00

It just brought terrible shame

 on anybody who knew you,

0208

01:16:29:01:/01:16:32:15

and particularly your family or

anybody who was related to you.

0209

01:16:35:29/01:16:38:06

You either got married or you went into hiding.

0210

01:16:38:18/01:16:42:27

You couldn't go back to school if you were

  married or had a baby.  It was over for you.

0211

01:16:43:12/01:16:46:29

  Your reputation is ruined.

  You're out of school. You're locked up.

0212

01:16:47:21/01:16:51:23

I'd been this girl that ... I didn't smoke,

didn't drink, didn't do anything wrong,

0213

01:16:51:25/01:16:53:21

took care of her kid brothers and sisters and  ...

0214

01:16:53:22/01:16:58:12

everybody's parents wanted

their daughters to be with me.

0215

01:16:58:13/01:17:03:02

And now when I walked down the street

0216

01:17:01:27/01:17:03:17

all the parents made their

daughters cross the street.

0217

01:17:03:18/01:17:05:19

They couldn't walk on the

same side of the street.

0218

01:17:19:05/01:17:22:02

You know, having a child

out of wedlock at that time

0219

01:17:22:03/01:17:28:04

was just not an OK thing to do.

You were not an OK person if you did that.

0220

01:17:29:11/01:17:32:06

To have a baby out of wedlock,

0221

01:17:32:14/01:17:35:08

  well, no good man is ever

  going to look at her again.

0222

O0:17:50:14/01:17:55:04

The social structure at that time was so rigid.

0223

01:17:56:07/01:18:00:13

And I just thought those were terrible,

women, terrible, terrible women.

0224

01:18:01::25/01:18:05:10

I couldn't acknowledge my pregnancy.

0225

01:18:06:06/01:18:09:13

Had nothing to do with me

because I never had a child.

0226

01:18:10:02/01:18:11:20

I never had a child.

0227

01:18:27:10/01:18:31:06

When I was about four months pregnant

they loaded me up in the car,

0228

01:18:31:09/01:18:34:24

and they drove me on the

longest drive of my whole life,

0229

01:18:35:00/01:18:39:09

to this home for unwed mothers.

I remember crying all the way

0230

01:18:39:15/01:18:43:26

 and still not understanding

 why I had to go away.

0231

01:18:44:24/01:18:48:01:

You're going to be taken care of

but you're going to have that baby,

0232

01:18:48:02/01:18:50:24

and you are going to do

 the only thing that is right.

0233

01:18:50:25/01:18:55:00

And that is, you're going to give this baby

to good people,  decent people,

0234

01:18:55:01:/01:18:59:19

because you are so bad  and so flawed

for just having this happen,

0235

01:18:59:20/01:19:03:24

 there's no way you could possibly

provide what a child would need.

0236

01:19:06:26/01:19:11:18

I knew my days in the Army were short.

I was about to be kicked out of there.

0237

01:19:11:24/01:19:17:26

My mother came and got me and

let me stay at home for a few weeks.

0238

01:19:18:01:/01:19:22:25

I was three months pregnant and she said,

"You don't look it now, but you will soon,

0239

01:19:22:26/01:19:24:20

And so I want you out of this house."

0240

01:19:25:01:/01:19:29:04

 And she said, "If you keep your baby,

 never come back."

0241

01:19:31:11/01:19:34:14

I had a lot of sermons from my commanding officer.

0242

01:19:34:15/01:19:40:00

I was crying and I wasn't acting like

 a trained combat soldier, I tell you that.

0243

01:19:40:02/01:19:44:11

I was sobbing and apologizing and

I had to write something on it.

0244

01:19:44:12/01:19:47:21

 And I wrote how sorry I was

 that I dishonored the Army. 

0245

01:19:49:18/01:19:55:20

He was discharged from the service, because

  of his injury,  and he got this huge pension.

0246

01:19:55:22/01:19:59:01:

I received 89 dollars and 5O cents. 

0247

01:19:59:02/01:20:03:24

and then I had to give that to
