Transcript HOW HOUSTON CHAPTER NATIONAL ORGANIZATION FOR WOMEN Vol. 3, No. 7 BROADSIDE November 1 972 Houston N.O.W. To OPEN WOMEN'S CENTER The Houston NOW Women's Center will open in December. Located on Milam near the Southwest Freeway, the Center will be the office for Houston NOW and a workshop for NOW projects. Sporting a marquee-style billboard, the building is being rented to NOW at a bargain price. It is the "Green House" used by the McGovern workers as a Houston headquarters. As the house plan on page 2 shows, the building is approximately 1000 square feet with a room large enough for meetings of 50 people. Present plans call for the entry room to be the office area with desk, telephone and feminist library. The long room will be furnished as a meeting room, and the remaining large room will serve as a workshop. The small room next to the kitchen will probably be outfitted as a children's play area with games and toys. Until recently NOW's treasury would not have been able to support such a project. However, a generous donation by NOW member Susan Butler has insured payment of the expenses for eight months or more. Most of the donation made to the NOW Legal Defense and Education Fund (LDEF) will be given to Houston NOW by LDEF for the expenses incurred in pursuing NOW projects. Part of the costs of maintaining a central office will be covered by these funds. Several of the projects to be pursued under this program are already underway such as the newsletter, the enforcement projects of the EEO task force and the articles written by the task force on Reproduction and Its Control. Other items in the proposal to LDEF include: EDUCATION. Information on sex discrimination and sex stereotyping in local educational facilities will be gathered. Data on the treatment of students and school personnel will be included in two reports, one on sexism in the public school system and the other on sex discrimination in higher education. CREDIT. Information on credit discrimination in Texas and on Texas laws affecting credit will be compiled. CHILD CARE. Data on local child care facilities will be gathered from child care centers, regulating agencies and parents. This information will be made available to persons requesting it. REPRODUCTION. Up to date information on birth control, sterilization and a- bortion and the doctors or facilities where each can be obtained will be a- vailable at the Center. LEGAL COUNSEL. Volunteer attorneys and law students will provide legal counsel on matters of sex discrimination. These along with the other activities of Houston NOW guarantee that the Center will be used to its capacity. At last there will be a place where feminists can go to visit, to work and to plan.
