Transcript IF YOU'VE GOT FLAUNT IT 1970 has been a year of beginning and progress for NOW in Houston. Formed in March, 1970, with the required minimum of ten members, the Houston Area chapter has over 50 paid members as 1971 begins. Through the efforts of the Houston NOW chapter women were heard as a minority group for the first time at the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission hearings held In Houston in June. At a press conference following the three-day hearings, Houston NOW urged the EEOC to continue the inclusion of women as a minority group in their future hearings. The EEOC was convinced. Its ensuing report, released in early November, documented employment discrimination against women. The EEOC reported that women "are rela- gated to Jobs In peripheral sectors of the Houston economy or to deadend Jobs in growth industries." On August 26, In celebration of the 50th anniversary of women's franchise, Houston NOW held a rally attracting over 300 people in front of the Federal Building. Following the rally, they desexigrated the Men's Grill in downtown Foley's. In an attempt to raise public consciousness about the women's rights movement, various members of NOW have appeared on every major TV and radio talk show in Houston. Some of the programs on which NOW members have appeared are these: Morning Show on Channel 11 Last Word on Channel 13 News at Noon on Channel 11 Ken Falrchlld Show on KTRH Rights in Conflict on KTRH Jo Simmons Show on KYED Women on Welfare on PACIFICA Chapter members have also appeared in person to promote the ideas of women's liberation. They have spoken to the Rotary Club of Dickinson, The Society of Professional Engineers in Pasadena, the Jewish Community Center, the Boards of Directors of two private schools, and to women's synagogue auxiliaries among others. In October, the BROADSIDE began monthly publication. IT Shortly before the November , elections, Houston NOW held a press conference and condemned the failure of any candidate to respond to the issue of women's rights. In December, Houston NOW hosted the Texas Abortion Coalition In Its formation session. 1971 can be a year of success for NOW and for women's equality with hard work, determination, and your help. Sisterhood Is powerful. 1 _ WOMEN'S CAUCUS ST AT CONFERENCE — ON CHILDREN For the first time a women's caucus was formed at the White House Conference on Children, December 13- 18, in Washington, D.C. Among the 4000 delegates to the conference, held once every decade, were NOW members and other female rights advocates. Delegates split Into separate caucuses, each having special priorities. Most of the delegates demanded a plenary session at the conclusion of the conference so their recommendations could be presented in united form to President Nixon for concrete action. Stephen Hess, conference chairman, worked out a complicated compromise that avoided a plenary session while permitting voting on the recommendations. The women's caucus proposed universal developmental child care without sex role stereotyping to help eliminate institutional and individual sexism. They also strongly urged the establishment of a network of high-quality child care centers with a diversity of programs and a variety of family options. Their proposals were endorsed by the conference. Other final recommendations of the conference included proposals for a national child health care program, a restructuring of Juvenile laws, and a child advocacy agency with full ethnic, racial, and sexual representation. The next conference is scheduled for 1980. If a resolution passed at this conference is implemented, the 1980 meeting will have facilities to care for the delegates* children. No such arrangements were made at this conference.
