To keep the spirit of International Women's Year alive in coming years, the Houston Branch of the AAUW hopes to make the Outstanding Women of the Year Awards an annual event! Guardiola emphasizes minorities Guardiola focuses on issues of concern to minority women as a Majority Caucus member of the National Board of Directors of NOW. She was elected October 27 at the Philadelphia National Conference on a platform reaching out to blue collar, Third World, lesbian and other women who have not felt comfortable in feminist groups in the past. She calls for a responsiveness to minority and low income women from feminists who have previously worked on middleclass white issues. This attention is needed on both the local and national level. In February 1975, Guardiola convened the tri-ethnic Houston Inner City NOW chapter which encourages members to become active in other community and political groups. The purpose of the group Guardiola says, "is not so much to achieve power in an organization but to politicize the group and to give women the self-confidence to become active. Task force priorities include criminal justice and woman in health which looks into the hospital district. Health care is of prime interest to Guardiola. As a health care professional she feels she "can contribute greatly to NOW by bringing national attention to the plight of women who are at the mercy of uncaring health providers." BREAKTHROUGH will be following the activities of Guardiola and the NOW National Board in coming months. Gloria Guardiola Support Breakthrough, Subscribe today.
