Transcript MONTROSE NOW vol 7 no. 6 august 81 I would like to begin with a brief history of Montrose Area NOW which will also tell you what our function is. -In the beginning, there was one chapter, i.e., Houston NOW. Bay Area NOW formed out of a course offered at College of the Mainland and taught by Houston women. Northwest NOW formed out of the school board campaign of Joan Hanlon (1972, Parents for Quality Education). A chapter in the center of Houston which would make the concerns of minority women its special interest area was formed and took the name Montrose NOW. Some Houston NOW members took special exception to the name and called in Sylvia Roberts (at present with NOW LDEF) to settle the grievance. The new chapter's name was changed to Inner-City NOW. Meanwhile the Southwest chapter formed and, last but not least, some Rice faculty and students put together a chapter in West University. The Inner-City chapter became inactive and the West U. chapter needed some officers. I agreed to chair for one year to see if it would revive. The residents of West University did not see the need for a NOW chapter, so I went home to Montrose and submitted the name change to National. Widespread apathy allowed the name to go on record without comment. Montrose Area Houston chapter of NOW was born! After years of practice, I knew how to schedule meetings, line up speakers, put notices in the paper and mask my chagrin when wery few people showed up. I finally decided to hell with speakers, programs, business, agendas and all that jazz we would meet once a month and have a pot-luck supper! And so we do . . . However, that's not all we do. Many of our members have been with NOW for lots (5-10) of years. They have some sense of the inner workings of the organization as well as the interaction of feminism and the mainstream (I personally feel that NOW has developed a mainstream of its own). The Montrose chapter can provide a forum for new members who want to know how we got where we are, where are we-women, NOW members, Houstonians-going, and what should we do next. The Montrose chapter has had special concern for battered women, prostitution as a force against women, and politics inside and outside
