Transcript NOW at the University of Houston Montrose Area NOW Vol. 3, No. II Vol. 8, No. II NOW AT UH When one is given a column to write, one often dwells on what should be said that hasn't been sa.id before. To say the least, this is hard to do. One of the privileges of taking on this new position is having this space to write my thoughts, as well as to welcome new members, to recognize active members, to report on chapter actions, and most importantly, to carry the message of unity as a chapter. But my column will not be restricted to any rigid format. Therefore, WELCOME to our new members and those who have renewed with us. The new members are Georgette Freelong, Jean Quataert, Deborah Deering-Farris, and Kathleen Bamberger. Renewals include Karen Lanning, Effie Feld, Henrietta Harrison, and Lucretia Cox. In joining NOW, you have taken the first step in becoming a feminist. It is our hopes that more NOW members on campus become more active in keeping the spirit of feminism alive. There are positions still open and many things that can help the chapter keep going. The positions that are still open are as follows: Secretary, Public Relations, University Lia- son, and Public Affairs. We also need people to keep office hours (one hour would be lots of help), keep our office files in order, post flyers for upcoming events (can be done while going to and from class or office) attend meetings and programs, help staff the information table, recruit new members, challenge or report sexism in classes. My message goes out to all NOW at UH members. In the beginning of the year, the Houston Post ran a series of articles on the question, "Is Feminism Dead?" In one article, Reporter Elizabeth Bennet attempted to portray the feminist on college campuses. Ms. Bennet interviewed members of the NOW chapter at the University of Houston and a few women students at Rice University. When the article was published, NOW at UH was totally ignored and the women at Rice were described at length. It was obvious at these women were not feminists but focussing on them served Ms. Bennet's purpose by showing that feminism is dead. We as a chapter know that feminism is not dead and will continue to exist, especially on our sexisT campus. I was disappointed at Ms. Bennet's article for I felt that the feminists she interviewed at UH portrayed the full range of feminist activity. I do not like to single out campus feminists and their struggles but at times we go unnoticed. Even we sometimes fail to thank each other for the efforts we have made. Being an active member is a challenge and requires lots of patience! Most of us are students who also hold down jobs and have families. We all have individual goals but share a common cause that keeps us together. At times our social life may suffer but we continue to keep the spirit alive. Unfortunately, we had low attendance at our October program meeting. Despite some difficulties, the show did go on and was worthwhile. Much thanks to our program coordinator, Cindy Funderburke. Thanks also to RossAnn continued next column Presidents' Column, MONTROSE AREA NOW The November meeting will be held en the 3rd Sunday, November 20th at the Women's Center, 4 Chelsea Place, fron 5-7 p.m. This will be a pot-luck supper and the meeting for the elections. There will be no meeting in December. The October meeting was another round of good food, good company and good talk. We have a self-nomination for president, Olivia Flores Alvarez, and hope for more candidates for the other offices. The discussion covered a brief history of the Montrose Chapter, the National Conference, and how best to deal with racism in general and NOW in particular. The November meeting date has been changed in order to allow Montrose to attend the State Council meeting in Austin on tne 11th and 12th. Helen Copitka, a former member, will attend the council meeting in order to discuss her candidacy for the State Board of Pardons and Paroles. Helen served ably as a Commissioner until they were made employees of the State. She has urged us to vote YES on Amendment 11. A special welcome to our new members: Marjon Bryan, Laura Caghan, Barbara Divine, Cindy Lyn Dyles, Gerald Fowler, Gayle Furlong, Shelley A. Grover, Elaine Kramer, Roger Morehead, Ms. Patrick, Katherine Saupp, Alicia Talley, Mary R. Taylor, Dr. Barbara Til ley and Jean Zell. WELCOME! I made a great personal discovery recently that I want to share with you in the form of a book report. I have never cared for novels, fantasies, sci-fi, or most mysteries. NOW I know why—I've never had a s/hero to call my own. The Horse Goddess, by Morgan Llywelyn, tells the story of a young Celtic princess who leaves her people and travels east to the land of the Scythians. The tale evolved from the research of the author, who has entwined the adventure with an air of authority. It is an altogether satisfying story. Peggy Hall President, Montrose Area NOW Daumas, Jo Ann Evansgardner, and Gerry Gardner. Our November Program - BATTERED WOMEN - will be presented by Jeff Basen who has volunteered countless hours at the HAWC center. Our November Brown Bag lunch program will be on Women and Economics, to be presented by chapter members. We urge members to come and share their insights. Our chapter is beginning it's third year. Keeping on with the tradition, I will try to add new dimensions to our chapter as past presidents have done, each adding their own personal touch to our growth and development. Diversity is the key to a truly representative NOW. Helen Wilma Ortiz President, NOW at UH
