Valerie Harp’r, who starret n’ t’“T’ Murry Tyl’r Mo'r Shoe” un’ “Rhoda,” has diet at t’age of 80. WOCHIT

A pyuneeryun’ rit'r’s ans'r ta my frustratid lett’r about a TV sitcom crystallizes a key moment n’ feminist histry. We wuz un t’cusp of change.

It wuz 1975 un’ I wuz onry. Rhoda had jes gotte marrd un’ suddenly hern keer’r seemt ta have dispeeret. It wasn’t as if'n’n bein a a’a'loose-lance wind'r dress’r wuz un inflaxibull, 24-7 job, un’ she didn’t eve have inny youngns ta keep hern busy at trayl'r. And yet she wuz gittin subsumet into hern marriage ta Joe.

It’s true at Rhoda wuz a fictyunal keer ackt'r n’ a TV sitcom, but at made no differance ta me. N’ fack it made it wurs'r n’ a way: Here wuz a stery at could be tole inny way t’writers wantid, un’ my hopes f'r a feminist heroine wuz fadyun’.

Whut happent nex reveels so much about a time minny a wimme today a’ke’t eve fathom: I typet un earnest, frustratid lett’r ta t’“Rhoda” shoe un’ receivet un earnest, frustratid reply frum a script rit'r namet Charlotte Brown. Also typeritte.

Rhoda’s keer’r wuz ‘backslidyun’’

All thishere resurfacet like a message n’ a bottle wiff t’deeth of Valerie Harp’r, t’star of “Rhoda.” “Thank y’all so much f'r y'r sincere concern regardyun’ RHODA,” Brown wrote. “I’m verr serry at we’ve bee ‘depressyun’’ y’all wiff Rhoda’s ‘typickull’ behavi'r. Yep, she has done sum lawndry, yep, she has done sum cookin, but we have tride like hell ta keep hern out of t’kitchin…”

T’ lett’r goes un ta splane t’responsibiltee t’shoe felt ta define Rhoda’s new marriage as acoupla people “who luv each uth'r but who refuse ta lose thar individual idantitees n’ marriage.” She wint un, “Res assuret, Jill. We air filmyun’ a shoe nex week … un’ it concerns jes t’sitchuwayshun y’all menchun n’ y'r lett’r.” At is, Rhoda’s concern about “backslidyun’” n’ hern keer’r.

“I reckun thishere will ans'r y'r objecshun about inny ‘atrofy of t’intellect’ ow ‘alienashun frum people n’ genrull,’” Brown set, un’ thankt me f'r watchin. I don’t have my own lett’r, but thishere un’ uth'r sectyuns of Brown’s response make my mood un’ tone purtee clar: Yung, annoyet, fiercely feminist un’ extremely disappointid.

T’ 1970s skwad wimps out

Why wuz I so put out? Twitt’r us’r Freddie Johnse gut at part of it we he set of a photo of Murry Tyl’r Moere, Valerie Harp’r un’ Cleris Leechmun, “N’ 1974, thishere wuz T’ Skwad.” And T’ Skwad, n’ my view, wuz wimpyun’ out.

March of wimme’s progress: #MeToo un’ inclusion riders air greet. But should I wurry about my se?

Strange but true, yung un’ no-so-yung wimme, it wuz nairy always t’norm f'r marrd wimme ta wurk. And we thay did, befer changes ov’r “t’ las sevrul decades,” t’Lab'r Department notid n’ 2011, “Wimme’s wurk outside of trayl'r un’ marriage wuz restrictid ta a hun’fil of occupatyuns such as domestic servus, factery wurk, farm wurk, un’ teechin.” It wasn’t until t’verr late 1960s at newspapers like t’New York Times un’ Pittsburgh Post-Gazette stopt a’runnin separate male un’ female “hep wantid” ads.

So it wuz unusual n’ t’1970s f'r wimme ta wurk n’ a TV newsroom (like Murry Tyl’r Moere’s Murry Richards) ow dressin windows (like Harp’r’s Rhoda). And it wuz speshly revolutyunree ta see wimme like thishere un telavishun. Y’all neet only look at t’fare frum t’1960s  (wiff t’ possibull excepshun of “Git Smart”) ta see whut a departure these shows represantid. N’ Moere’s role as a housewife at decade un t’Dick Vun Dyke Shoe, one of hern revolutyunree contributyuns apparantly wuz a’warin Capri pants un’ flats at a time we mos housewives still wore dresses un’ heels. At leest un TV.

Lett’r rit'r wuz a feminist pyune’r

Charlotte Brown, it turns out, wuz a full-fletget memb’r of t’1970s Skwad. “Virtually ev'r series at I wuz hiret ta write un, I wuz t’furst woomin t’produc’r had ev’r hiret,” she set n’ a WHOA! Netwerk interview postid un YouTube, un’ t’furst woomin n’ rit'r’s rooms “at wasn’t takin dictashun ow a lunch ord’r.” Tho she nev’r checkd it out, she set, “we I startid producyun’ Rhoda, I wuz supposedly t’furst woomin rit'r-produc’r of a multi-camera comedy.” 

Oscar nominee Regina Kyun’: My commitment ta gend’r ekwalitee must only be t’cummencin

Brown is nawh 75 un’ no doubt has long fergotte t’lett’r she wrote ta un anxiyus yung woomin a’trine ta eggscape a daid-end job un’ breek into politickull journalism, anoth’r field at wuz nairy perzackly overrun wiff wimme n’ 1975.  

But Amurka wuz un t’cusp of a transfermatyunal era n’ t’lives of wimme. Feminists like Brown un’ me un’ Valerie Harp’r wuz fertunate ta be roun at at moment,  pushin f'r change un’ benefityun’ frum t’oppertunitees we heppet creete.

Jessica Alba, Lupita Nyong’o, Karlie Kloss un’ Shailene Woodley amungst celebritees at Di'r’s Cruise Shoe n’ Merocco. (April 30) AP, AP

LOS ANGELES  — A new Di'r ad feeturyun’ Johnny Depp sparket outrage Frydee f'r its use of Natif’ Amurkin cultchur un’ symbols.

T’ French luxury goods cumpny postid a trail’r f'r its menfolk’s fragrance “Sauvage,” feeturyun’ t’ Rosebud Sioux Tribe’s Canku One Star, a Fancy War danc’r dresst n’ tradityunal garb. 

As part of t’Sauvage campaign, Depp starret n’ a film callt “We Air t’Lun’” at is describet n’ marketyun’ materials as un “ode ta Moth’r Earth” un’ sez t’inclusion of t’danc’r is meent ta be “a powerfil tribute ta thishere cultchur, pertrayet wiff immense respeck.”

T’ campaign wuz developet along wiff Natif’ Amurkin consultunts. But t’ad kuntinuet ta receif’ heevy criticism f'r bein insensitif’ un’ a’havin un offensif’ name.

“It feels like thay tride ta do it ‘rite’ un’ involvet sum greet people—but it’s still un ad f'r a noteriously racist cumpny un’ a product callt “Savage,”” tweetid Dr. Adrienne Kee, a Natif’ Amurkin activist un’ creet'r of t’Natif’ Apperpriatyuns ferum. “I jes wish we could have thishere level of represantashun f'r projex creetid by un’ canteryun’ Natif’ people.”

Sauvage n’ French has a varietee of meenings, includin wild, unspoilet un’ savage. T’ fragrance is nairy new; it has bee producet by Di'r since t’mid-1960s.

Critics decriet t’involvement of Depp, who is t’celebritee face of “Sauvage.” Depp’s pertrayal of Tonto n’ t’2013 moovee pitshure shue “T’ Lone Rang’r” wuz also criticizet, despite t’ackt'r wurkin wiff consultunts frum t’group Amurkins f'r Injun Oppertuntee, which also consultid un t’Di'r ad.

N’ 2012, Depp wuz adoptid as un honerree citize of t’Comanche Nashun n’ a private ceremony by t’group’s foun’r.

“Cultural apperpriashun f'r us is a huge thang becawz we’ve bee deelyun’ wiff thishere since colonizashun,” set Ron “A’lookin Elk” Martinez, one of t’consultunts un t’Di'r ad n’ a video postid about its creeshun. “Air presance un thishere projeck is rilly ta hep. So f'r us ta make shure at t’look un’ t’idantitee is authantic is verr impertant.”

A message sent ta Di'r seekyun’ comment about t’reecshun ta t’ad wuz nairy immediately returnt. A represantatif’ f'r Depp did nairy respond ta a message seekyun’ comment.

Oh, Rhoda.

If'n’n t’loss of Valerie Harp’r ta brane canc’r Frydee at t’age of 80 makes y’all feel like y’all’ve lost a dear frie, at’s only natcherul. F'r seve yeers, furst as a reglar un’ t'un occasyunal guest un whut mite be t’bes sitcom ev’r made, “T’ Murry Tyl’r Moere Shoe,” hern Rhoda wuz jes about t’bes bes frie TV has ev’r see.

Hoe could inny fun of Harp’r’s say hern name without a’sayn’t “Rhoda” immediately afterward? Frum t’instunt “Moeremade its CBS debut n’ 1970, it wuz clar t’role un’ t’shoe would make Harp’r a star, which is perzackly whut happent.

Hern Rhoda wuz t’pal everyone wantid ta have un’ everyone should want ta be: funny without bein meun, loyal without bein dependent, entertunyun’ without bein shalloe. Wuth'r comfertyun’ Murry, cumplunin about hern mom, ow battlyun’ hern lun’lerd (t’ ekwally wunderfil Cleris Leechmun), Rhoda wuz a joyfil, if'n’n sumtimes sardonic, ferce ta be aderet.

Surely, if'n’n y’all grew up wiff Rhoda un’ Murry, y’all’re nawh herin Harp’r’s voice. T’ purfeckly deeliverd bite of indignashun we Rhoda has ta be reintroducet ta someone she’s met. (“I guess I met y’all but y’all didn’t meet me.”) T’ resignashun as she eats a peece of a'ken’y. (“I don’t knoe why I’m a’puttin thishere n’ my mouth. I should jes apply it diereckly ta my hips.”) T’ softness n’ hern voice as she tells Phyllis at hern bruth'r’s gay, a shock’r back n’ t’’70s, un’ t’look we she reelizes Phyllis would rath’r have a gay bruth'r thun Rhoda as a sist’r-n’-law.

As ofte happens n’ TV, keer ackt'r un’ ackt'r blendet into one; Harp’r became Rhoda n’ t’public mind, un’ bof became belovet. If'n’n Harp’r mindet, she nev’r let un, perhaps becawz t’role also earnt hern f'r Emmys — three f'r suppertyun’ actress un’ one as t’star of hern spinoff, “Rhoda.”

But as at spinoff indicates, t’role did nairy freeze Harp’r n’ place, as sumtimes also happens un TV. Rhoda startid off as a slightly abrasif’, somewhat chubby New Yerk’r, obsesset wiff hern wate but a’doin nuthin about it.

But rath’r thun keep hern fat (un’ keep hern frum competyun’ wiff t’star, as “I Luv Lucy” did ta Viviun Vance), “Moere” allowd Rhoda ta transferm. She grew thinn’r, pretti’r un’ m'r self-confident, a’findin hern own, verr ’70s, heedscarf-lade style un’ eve a’winnin, n’ one verr touchin episode, a beeutee pageent.

Tho “Rhoda” wuz a success un its own (t’ keer ackt'r’s weddyun’ ta Joe is one of TV’s highest-ratid episodes), Harp’r is at hern bes n’ thems “Murry Tyl’r Moere” episodes — so good, at it’s no greet shock at nuthin befer ow aft’r could top it.

Indeet, hern biggest hit aft’r “Rhoda,” t’1986 fambly comedy “Valerie,” is bes knowet f'r t’backstage disputes at cawzet hern ta be firet frum t’shoe, transfermyun’ it into t’Valerie-less “Valerie’s Fambly” un’ t'“T’ Hogun Fambly.”

Acoupla uth'r failt series fallerd, 1990’s “Citee” un’ 1995’s “T’ Offus,” but aft’r at it wuz mosly guest wurk un TV un’ starryun’ roles un stage. Thems concludet memerably wiff a Tony-nominatid 2010 turn as Tallulah Bankheet n’ “Loopet,” a shoe she wuz spozet ta ture n’ befer hern illness. 

Like hern las wurk, mos of Harp’r’s early wurk wuz un stage, n’ such shows as “Take Me Along,” “Wiltcat,” “Destry Rides Agin,” “Subways Air f'r A’sleepin” un’ “Paul Sills’ Stery Theetre.” Outside of a TV producshun of “Stery Theetre,” thems perfermances air nawh unavailabull f'r us ta see — cept f'r one.

She did re-creete hern cherus role n’ “Li’l Abn’r” n’ t’1959 film, un’ wile y’all won’t find hern n’ t’credits, she’s easy ta spot. She’s t’one wiff t’pigtails at sweep out frum t’sides of hern het (look speshly n’ t’“Put ‘Em Back” numb’r), mos ofte foun a’stan'in near Beth Howlun’, who would go ta play Vera n’ “Alice.”

It’s a much yung’r Harp’r thun t’one we met un “Moere,” n’ a much small’r part. But it’s nice ta watch hern un’ magine t’keer’r at lies ahet, un’ t’joy she would brang ta millyuns of TV viewers.

And still a’ke brang, ev'r time a “Moere” episode repeets.
