Transcript 12TH NATIONAL N.O.W. CONFERENCE, LOS ANGELES, OCTOBER 5-7, 1979 Workshop: VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN: OVERVIEW Kathleen M. Fojtik of Minnesota introduced herself as the Chair of the National NOW Committee which has been in existence for ten months and has a budget of $1000.00. She discussed the crime of violence against women. Kathy believes that the key to success in overcoming this crime is in passing the ERA so that all workers in the criminal justice system can be told that women cannot be discriminated against. We saw a fine 23-minute film entitled "Battered Women: Violence Bcaind Closed Doors11 in which women in the home described the batterings they had received and in which their male partners rationalized their reasons for hitting them. Then two women from a Chicago group named "Chimera11 demonstrated examples of self-defense for women. A $2.25 paperback they recommended is AGAINST RAPE - A Survival Manual for Women: How To Avoid Entrapment And How To Cope With Rape Physically And Emotionally by A. Medea and K. Thompson (Farrar, Straus & Giroux: N.Y.,1974; 8th printing, 1978). Peggy Hall and I then both attended an exciting workshop continuing this subject matter which Peggy will describe next. --Clara Willing Thurs. , Nov. 15, 7:30 p.m. , Rice Film Center, University & Stockton TOUT VA BIEN (1972) $1.50 This is, by design, the most accessible of Director Jean-Luc Godard's political statements—the acutely modern story of the breakdown in a relationship between a compromised TV director (Yves Montand) and an American journalist (Jane Fonda) who becomes radicalized through a factory strike she covers. Breaking through his previous misogyny, Godard makes here his most important statement on feminism. The polemics are meant to excite as well as inform; incisive monologues, a mammoth set that depicts the factory strike in dissonant cross-section, and an endless tracking shot through an enormous supermarket that ranks with the traffic jam in "Weekend" as Godardian spectacle. NOW NATIONAL CONFERENCE The first plenary session was a colorful and exciting experience. ..Most all of the people were wearing green and white for the ERA. The Texas banner was one of the twelve state banners that inarched in with our first Women's Marching Band. Ellie picked a slate of officers and backed their campaign. They were elected. President Eleanor Smeal Secretary Sandra Roth VP Executive Judy Golsmith Treasurer Alice Chapman VP Action Jane Well-Schooly The delegates presented the plenary session with 111 resolutions; seven were debated and voted on. The remainder will be reviewed by the National Board. Several members of the Texas delegation expressed concern with this method. The delegates from the greater Houston area purchased some of the workshop tapes and by retaping, we should be able to share a great deal of the information collected. The workshops on Violence Agaist Women were divided into four different areas. In fact, the one I attended was subdivided into two parts. The topic started out looking at prostitution and what this does to all women. The subject of pornography and its role in both prostitution and violence was then introduced. This is an extremely complicated issue and will require a good deal more than one workshop beforeclear action programs can be deveiced Margo St. James of COYOTE and Pricilla Adams of San Francxsco have formed a Natonal Task Force on Prostitution and this will become the vehicle for the several goals they have set forth. Decriminalisation will be the U.S. goal and the outlawing of slavery "once and for all" will be the international goal. The presence of Flo Kennedy at this session was the frosting on my cake± Peggy Hall
