Transcript NOW HOUSTON CHAPTER NATIONAL ORGANIZATION FOR WOMEN Vol.4, No.3 BROADSIDE March 1973 SISTERS UNITE REVOLUTION IS NOW From a basement meeting of 28 concerned women in 1966, to a major conference of more than 2,000 fierce feminists, the National Organization for Women has indeed risen. The 6th Annual Conference of NOW held in Washington, D.C, February 17- 19, proved once again the strength and diversity of the women's movement. Twenty members of Houston NOW were present to listen to NOW president Wilma Scott Heide state in her keynote address, "We will liberate women from the 'feminine mystique,' a protective reaction to the destructive 'masculine mystique.' And in the process, we will create the transcending 'human mystique' that values nurturance, caring, sensitivity, competence, self- giving, aggressiveness to achieve goals, et al. Whether these traits are expressed by women or men, publicly or privately, our choices will be self- discovered, self-defined and shared." The conference included two days of workshops where Houston NOW members exchanged ideas and learned many new directions for the activities of the Houston chapter. Meetings and caucuses were held at every hour, almost around the clock and Houston NOW members somehow managed to attend most of them. One of the most important series of caucuses met to determine candidates for the national board. Houston NOW members joined other delegates of the southern region to campaign for the election of Marlyne Kilbey. The drive proved successful and Houston NOW is proud to have one of its members on the NOW national board. Marlyne expressed her reaction to the events of the convention and her election to the board, "I feel the resolutions passed Monday concerning poverty, minority women and lesbians show once and for all that we clearly feel a strong sense of identification with all women. Their battles are our battles. "In addition, the convention as a body has affirmed its intention to turn more power over to local chapters. And as part of this sentiment, a resolution was passed at the first board meeting that minutes of all board meetings be published in DO IT NOW." (Many additional resolutions were passed and all will aDpear in the next edition of DO IT NOW.) As the only board member in Houston, Marlyne cares very much that all Houston NOW members be made aware of events in the national organization and to this end, she requests that any member discuss with her any items to be included on the agenda at national meetings, in particular ideas for national fund raising.
