Transcript NOW at the University of Houston Montrose NOW January 1983 Volume 3, Number 1 President's Column. Welcome to our new members: Sofia Aguilar, Peta Bain, Kim Beganoy, Paul Rowe and Barbara Signer. On December 17 NOW at UH had an end of the year celebration at JoAnn's home. Everyone who came was surrounded by beautiful poinsettas, delicious food (including ginger bread woman cookies complimentary of Jeanne Sommerfeld) and wonderful women's music. On December 14 thru 16 I set up tables at UC and Satellite to sell feminist t-shirts, records, books, etc. We made close to $40.00 profit for our chapter which is very much needed along with suppling feminist products to the university community. The products sold well and many went for gifts during the holiday season. Remember your feminist merchants for next year's holiday shopping! NOW at UH will hold its election of officers on Tuesday, January 25 at 5:30pm at the UC. The following positions will be open: Secretary, Membership, Public Affairs, Fundraising, and Newsletter. We urge all members to consider running for a position of their choice and/or to attend this important meeting. The election will be one of two mayor concerns in the agenda of this business meeting. All members are welcomed to staff our NOW office located in Campus Activities. Two hours are required per day but any time you can give will help. We would like to expand our files on feminist articles as well as our book collection in order to have information available to anyone interested in feminist issues. Come by and leave message if you would like to help. We hope everyone had a wonderful winter solstice and wish everyone a good new year in 1983. I would like to give my definition of a good year. A good year is one in which all children can live in an environment where sexism does not exist. Sounds like dreamland? Maybe so, but not an impossible one. For now, we can only imagine it, but some day it will be a reality. For now, we choose to recognize sexism, confront it by speaking out and watch what seems the forever-lasting process of change. But some day dreamland will be a reality. I wish for a good year. Rossann Daumas, President, NOW at UH MONTROSE NOW WOMEN'S HISTORY PAGEANT Montrose NOW is producing a pageant to illustrate women's contributions to history to be performed on the final day of women's history week. Among the cast of characters arc such notable women as Susan B. Anthony, The Grimke Sisters, and Anne Hutchinson. If you'd like to participate in this show, please contact Peggy Hall, President of Montrose NOW, at 522-4468. Consciousness Raising In our December issue I had mentioned the importance of starting a Consciousness Raising group at UH. At this time I would like to highlight some information taken from A Quick Rundown of Feminist CR Groups by Lee Walker on what feminist consciousness raising means, how feminist CR sessions functions and what the goals are in hopes that we can clear up any misinterpretation of what CR sessions are. Also, this information may answer any basic questions to anyone who is interested in participating in NOW"at UH CR sessions. What does Feminist CR mean? Consciousness means personal, internalized awareness of existential reality. "Feminist consciousness" refers to such awareness as it relates to sexism. Sexism means the economic exploitation and social domination of members of one sex by the other, specifically of women by men. (Sexism includes sex-role assignments, sex-stereotyping assumptions, sex-based discrimination in society's institutions and sex-linked self- images). "Feminist consciousness raising" is the process of gaining an increased awareness of sexism and of one's self in relationship to one's sex in our society. How does a CR function? In general, a group consists of 5-10 people who meet regularly (usually two hours once a week for six weeks.) Each individual shares her (or his) personal experiences, observations, feelings and opinions on the particular topic for that session. What are the goals of CR? Each group develops its own goals. The three prevalent goals are: 1. To develop intimate bonds of friendship, trust and support, and thus, to break down the "sexist" barriers to intra/inter-sex communication, allowing people to experience each other as whole persons, rather than as stereotypical representation of their sex. 2. To create a safe environment wherein each person can develop self-pride, can overrcome sex-stereotypical feelings of inadequacy and can grow toward full humanhood (e.g. so that men can learn to cry with each other, and women can learn to txpress rage without guilt.) 3. To provide a base of understanding upon which to understand and combat sexist oppression, and to dexlop the political consciousness necessary to effect needed societal reforms. If you are interested in being part of a CR group or know someone who is, contact Rossann at 924-5177 (mornings) or JoAnn at 741-4009. If you are interested in being a facilitator, Texas NOW will have a CR facilitator training in Houston on the first week of February. Contact persons mentioned above to make arrangements. Facilitators of CR groups do not act as "leaders" for CR groups are leaderless. A CR facilitator will remain on call or join the group as an equal participant after the facilitating function has been completed. Facilitators are needed for NOW at UH CR sessions and are always in demand in other areas in Houston. Rossann Daumas
