Transcript NEWS NOW at the University of Houston, Founded March7*1981 THE EQUAL RIGHTS AMENDMENT SECTION 1: Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of sex. SECTION 2: The Congress shall have the power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article. SECTION 3: This amendment shall take effect two years after the date of ratification. (complete text) M. J. Sommerfeld - President; E. G. Feld - Treasurer; R. Daumas - Membership; J. Evansgardner - Public Relations; S. Forschler - Action Team Coordinator. April, 1982 Volume 2, #4 PRESIDENT'S COLUMN Newsletter layout and paste-up by Rossann Daumas The ERA is still alive and fighting in Oklahoma. While it was defeated in the Oklahoma House, the ERA can be ratified by OK legislators during a special session. This is not a far-fetched notion. Oklahoma's Governor Nigh has announced that he will call a special session if passage of the ERA looks likely -- i.e. if at least one other state passes it. Oklahoma broke the logjam on the 19th (Suffrage) Amendment in special session in 1920. They also gave 18 year olds the right to vote in a special session. Elsewhere in this newsletter is a proposed National bylaw that JoAnn and I wrote while we were in Oklahoma. We took advantage of the opportunity to lobby activists from other states who were also "missionarying" in Oklahoma. Please read it, even though the print is small. It is a follow-up to the page 2 article in the last issue. I was thrilled to see all the work done in the chapter while I was absent. RossAnn Daumas and Ellen Seaton took care of a multitude of details and crises. In addition, Ellen along with Cynthia Reyna and Susan Marlow organized the March Program Meetings on Women's Academic Status. The two meetings (at 1 and 7) were very different. Janet Chafetz, (main campus) and Jean Quataert, Nan Bruckner and Gretchen Mieszkowski (Clear Lake campus) aroused spirited debate with their very different approaches to the questions about women's studies proposed by the program committee. I was glad I got back in time to hear them. If there are other issues you are interested in addressing, or if the meetings have not been at convenient times for you, please call (783-9730) or write me about what you'd like to see. With summer approaching, my schedule undergoes dramatic shifts which sharply limit my available "free" time. Therefore, it is imperative if the chapter is to continue to grow in its scope of actions, that you, the raison d'etre of this organization, take the initia tive for programs, tables, taskforces, newsletter, etc. This would not mean signing away your life. In general, a commitment that focused your time and energy in a particular area could easily be contained within 10 hours per month. RossAnn is organizing information tables on campus two times a month. She said it took her around 20 minutes to do the organizing before the day of table. Add this to the 4 hours (2 hours/day) working at the table, and for under 5 hours of her time, the chapter got 2 new members, 9 message brigad- ers, 25 people signed up as interested in the newsletter. NOT BAD. And doing a little really makes jy_ou feel a lot better. While during the last 2 months we've had more people active than ever, people need to feel comfortable taking the initiative for developing actions, programs, etc. Therefore, because I believe people do more if they believe they know what they are doing, the Texas State NOW Task Force Coordinator, G. K. Sprinkle and I are organizing a NOW Workshop for June 12. It will explain how to set up Action Teams, Issue Taskforces, including how to make media contacts, how to gather needed information and resources, plus all the basics on phone banking, petitioning, letter writing, etc. Please plan on coming. It seemed especially appropriate to plan for such a Workshop because here in Houston (as is obvious in our chapter) NOW has enjoyed tremendous growth in new members and new chapters within the last year. I'm going to try to call you within the month to discuss what you feel comfortable doing in your NOW chapter to help end sexism. Elsewhere in this newsletter is a flyer for the Margie Adam concert we are sponsoring this month. I hope you will find a good place to post it. On the back you will find a review which will/may make you unable to miss it yourself. Hope to see you there.
