Transcript JOANNE MURRY, left, and KAY RORER at NATIONAL WOMENTS CONVENTION. Photography by Tom Colburn Some people can look at this picture and feel nothing but disdain, while others can empathize with their situation. But no matter how one feels about lesbians, one must wonder why the National Women's Conference took on such a controversial proposal as lesbian rights. The Pro-Family Coalition accused the conference of promoting homosexuals, but the truth is that the conference was working for equal rights for all women. They could have stuck with the more accepted problems such as battered wives, rape victims, abused children, disabled women and women unable to realize their full potentials because of sex discrimination. But the Conference leaders said they must be willing to face the problems of all women or the conference would have been a mockery. Gloria Steinem said that the majority of Americans support civil rights for homosexuals because discrimination against them is so patently unjust. But the Pro-Family Coalition ran an ad with a young girl asking her mother, "Mommy, when I grow up, can I be a lesbian?'' The answer to that question is yes, because no one really knows why people are homosexual, bisexual or heterosexual. And to exclude one from their rights because of sexual preference is as illogical as excluding one because of skin color or nationality. The fact that the women at the conference were able to overcome their biases and create a platform for all women is proof that the conference was worth the $5 million in tax money. To exclude any group would have defeated the purpose of the conference from the start. -The Daily Cougar (U of H) 12-7-77 January/February 1978 13
