(complete text) m>wtww October, 1981 Volume I, Issue #5 YOU AND YOUR NOW CHAPTER by Mary Jeanne Sommerfeld This semester marks the first full semester since the re-organization of the NOW Chapter at the U. of H. As newly elected president, 1 would like to provide some suggestions for goals of this chapter and ways that you might like to participate. The first thing I would like to stress is that NOW members believe that feminism* is an integral part of every member's life. This chapter will help you cope as a feminist as well as change what you have to cope with. Almost everyone on campus has -four or five essential things happening in their life at any one time. We have classes to attend, books to read, papers or tests to be prepared. In addition, most of us have a job to go to or research to do. Some of the more ambitious members even try to have a personal life that is satisfying. In other words we are all busy. I would like each member to feel rewarded for putting the amount of time on feminist work within the chapter that they are comfortable with. If you have no time till spring, fine, if you only have an a couple hours a month, great. Any time you are willing and happy to give will be appreciated. There is no reason to feel guilty if you can not do everything you would ideally like to or as much as other feminists do. Contributions are not comparative. Each is valuable. Why should you get involved? Feminism will not, in all probability, bring you a better job (directly) or more money (directly). Although organized feminism will achieve the goals of political, social, and economic equality between women and men. I would like for the chapter to provide for you a place to be re-vitalized. When you feel discriminated against or overburdened, coming to a meeting should help you feel that what you are doing is worth it and that there are others who are struggling with simiTar problems. In addition the chapter and the work you are able to do within it educates the university community about inequality between the sexes and its harmful effects. The chapter will be a source for information about issues or rights that you are interested in. We can also provide training in actions, in organizing, arguing and self-assertion, through direct participation. Also you can get recognition for work accomplished or articles written in the chapter newsletter that goes out to over 250 individuals and groups on campus. ( You too can be a leader on campus*!) At the last meeting, we outlined the following goals for the this year. Nationally, our chapter will follow the lead of national NOW and focus on the passage of the E.R.A. At the state level, our chapter will participate both as a member of the Council of NOW chapters in the Houston area and of Women's Lobby Alliance. On campus, we are going to focus on the current position of, role for, and future of women's studies at the University of Houston. Initially, we will be doing background work necessary to determine the amount of support for an increase in curriculum time devoted to women's studies. We also will research why a previous attempt to establish a women's studies program failed. Elsewhere in this issue are suggestions as to how you can "Get Involved" particularly if your time is limited and a survey to determine the interests of chapter members that we hope you will take the time to fill out and return- Also enclosed is a series of questions relating to the status of women on campus that we would like to have answers for. If there is a question that you are interested in working on, or if you would like to find out about support for women's studies within a particular discipline or department, please let us know so that we can coordinate efforts and maybe provide a few leads.
