Transcript Dear NOW Sisters, Two months ago, I went through a serious emotional crisis, during which I realized that I needed the support of my NOW sisters. I hadn't seen most of you for months and wondered what had happened to us. We used to get together often (twice a month) to work on various issues; we had C.R, groups; and we shared our hopes, frustrations, and depressions as the E.R.A, was fought for and eventually defeated. Well, as with most of my crises, this one was resolved and is now in the past, but I was left with a determination that something be done to bring us back together. That is what this letter is all about. Bay Area NOW is in the process of starting a women's support group. The purpose of this group will be to bring us together. It will provide a safe, confidential environment of support where we can air our feelings, frustrations, accomplishments, depressions, etc. It will also be a group where we can just sit back and enjoy each other's company and strengthen our sense of sisterhood. It will be a group where we are free to share our differences as well as our similarities without fear of rejection. In short, it will be a group where we can share ourselves with each other. Here are a couple of things the support group will not be. First, it is not designed as a C.R. (consciousness raising) group, though Ifm certain that a little G.R. will be a pleasant side-effect. Also, this will not be a therapy group. However, support groups can be very therapeutic and I'm sure that there will be emotional healing from time to time (another side-effect?). I've told you what I envision the support group to be. Now I'd like to share the thoughts cf some of our other members. A few of us met recently to discuss the formation of this group and each expressed what she wants to share in a support groupi "A place to share problems of living in a repressive environment for women's rights and trying to hold on to ideals," "ITwant a smpport group to renew my strength and help my mental attitude." "I want to enlarge my circle of friends and acquaintances and share my views on life." "To recapture a sense of sisterhood, offering a safe environment for seeking and giving support—hopefully incorporating new blood and fresh ideas." "I need a place to introduce potential members and to share, support, etc., with good friends, I would like special guests, occasionally, who might give information on particular subjects of interest to us," "A place and time to share ideas—rekindle the flame (so to speak) of our feminism—getting back in touch with everyday issues that reward
