Transcript PREMIER ISSUE VOL 1 NO 1 CHAPTER at the UlCEVE__37T?r OF HOUSTON UH chapter of NO W meets, passes program resolution DOREY ALBERT VUH Student News Service A unanimous resolution was passed during the Monday meeting of the UH chapter of the National Organization for Women to develop programs addressing the concerns of UH students. Of particular concern to UH NOW is security on campus. Nancy George, tentative Public Affairs officer for NOW, said, "our ability to obtain an education is being hampered by the lack of campus security during the evening hours. Women are just afraid to go to the library alone at night," she said. Another concern of UH NOW is a "gender-free world," said Jo Ann Evansgardner, local organizer of UH NOW and past national board member of NOW. "Individuals should be judged by their qualities and not by their sex,"she said Evansgardner moved to Houston over a year ago from Pittsburgh, PA where she served as local president of a NOW Pittsburgh Chapter. "It's been easier to organize here than it was to organize a chapter in Pittsburgh because UH% students seem to be more aware of current issues/' said Evan- sgardm* All the national requirements for a NOW charter have been met and it's just a, matter of weeks before the student organization has a national charter, said Evansgardner. Evansgardner's husband, Dr. Gerry Gardner, a UH Professor of Electrical Engineering, is the UH NOW chapter advisor. He has served as president for a Pittsburgh NOW Chapter and has also held national office as treasurer. Evansgardner said she "married a feminist." "There are many men interested in becoming members of NOW," she said. Jeff Basen, a graduate student in Psychology, said he joined NOW because he "wanted to belong to an organization that works against discrimination." Sharon Leber, Acting Spokeswoman for UH NOW, was attracted to NOW because of the "new conservative swing in government," she said. Leber said she is primarily interested in fighting the current 20 bills before the state legislature which prohibit or restrict a woman's access to reproductive freedom. NOW's next business meeting will be April 20 in the UC. Information regarding any of NOW's special programs can be found posted on bulletin boards and in The Daily Cougar's etc. column.
