Transcript NOW at the University of Houston Montrose Area NOW AUGUST 1983 Vol. 3, # 8 Vol. 8, # 8 Presidents' Column I'm delighted with the outcome of both July programs - American Women Pageant and Homophobia: the Effect on Young People. I would like to thank Montrose NOW and all the cast for their dedication. It comes as no surprise that we (I've become an addition to the cast) have been invited to preform again later this year at UH/CLC. I would like to thank Dr.s Josephine Stewart and Bill Simon for their participation in our program on Homophobia. 38 people attended a very interesting and educational discussion, which was preceded by the film Who Happen To Be Gay. These two programs and past NOW/UH programs are proof that feminist programming are needed and appreciated. NOW/UH will continue offering monthly programs on a variety of issues of concern to women. Our goal is to have monthly brown bags (noon, sharp) at the Satellite, UC Also feminist films every month in the evening. Of course, our business meetings will be scheduled as usual. Everyone is urged to attend business meetings, if not to get involved, at least to know what's going on. NOW/UH elected officers are required to be at ALL business meetings. Keep your calendar (Herizons) posted for Fall Semester events. Credentialling for all NOW members who plan to attend the National Conference is due at the National NOW office by August 30, 1983. Anyone interested in attending must contact me by August 26. So far Helen Ortiz, Jeanne Somraer- feld, Penny Gutierrez, JoAnn Evansgardner and myself want to go. You must be a currently enrolled student in case we get funding from UH to help pay for traveling expenses. In addition, everyone wanting to go* must get involved in the fundraiser which we are planning for September (more on that in a minute.) As of July 1, 1983 NOW membership dues are $40.00 with a hardship rate of $15.00 or more. As you may know, dues are divided to national, state and local chapters. The increase in percentage of the dues allocated to the national level is higher also, with chapters and the state getting less. We feel that especially hurts our chapter since many of our members pay minimum dues. NOW/UH wished we had had a say-so in this decision. If chapters are weakened, action is weakened, since without chapters there would be no local actions. Also, they are of primary importance in recruiting NOW members. We plan to contact National NOW officers so they will know how we feel. Let me know if we have your support. NOW/UH and Spring Branch/Memorial is working on a special event for September which consist of a dinner (hopefully at Black Eyed Pea Restaurant) followed by entertainment by LYRA and a film (hopefully The Dinner Party.) You notice all the speculations so far? This event is the one I mentioned which we need people to work for as a fundraiser. I find this event to be a wonderful idea. I will be working on it so please call me to help. Let's get the speculations out of the way. Rossann Daumas President, NOW/UH Special thanks to Heidi, Janet, and Carol. They helped put together the Herizons, folded, stapled and labelled in record time. This could be the wave of the future. Relax Pageant Cast - we have been dis-invited to give the second half on August 26th at the Houston Area Women's Center. Another program has been scheduled. We can think about Susan B's birthday as our next best time to perform. We have been offered the opportunity to have a woman physician address Montrose NOW. We could have a joint program meeting with NOW at UH or our regular Sunday Pot-luck. Peggy Hall, President Montrose NOW ******•*••• THE RACE FOR NOVEMBER IS ON! ••*••*•*••• NOW at U.H. will be registering voters on campus on August 23 and 24 at fee payment from 10am to 7pm. It is important for us to get voters registered for several reasons. Because polls show that the majority of people support our major issues ( over 70S support the ERA, over 70J oppose making abortion illegal, over 50% support -equal civil rights for lesbians and gay men), we must make this majority a reality at the voting booths to make politicians responsive to our just feminist demands. As there are more women than men in this country, the more people registered to vote, probably means the continuation of the gender gap. We can also raise the money necessary to insure that our chapter can continue to actively work for equality of rights in our country. We will raise money by getting people to pledge us X$ (amount of money) for each voter we register. (You can set a maximum number of voters for each pledge.) We go out and register voters, which also increases our visibility in local politics, then collect the money. It's a no lose situation. We've enclosed a pledge form in the newsletter for you to use. Please get as many pledges as possible. (It's surprisingly easy, the hardest part is asking!) If you have any questions, comments, or enthusiasm, please call me at 726-9828(H), or JoAnn at 741-4009(H), or Rossann at 924-5177(H). We will be contacting all members about participating in this event. P.S. If you want to participate but can't because of the time and/or location, please call. We will try to set up alternatives. Thank you. Jeanne Sommerfeld •(Note from JE: And you may want to go, even if not as a delegate, since every NOW member may speak and debate on the floor, and your voice could be a decisive factor in this convention, when many critical resolutions will be considered.)
