Transcript PAGE 2 JULY 1974 NEWSLETTER Barbara's Column Many thanks to NOW members who staffed the booth at Highland Mall on Saturday, June 22. Posters by Austin artist Judith Batemann and display of The NOW Guide for Austin Women, helped sell Guides and memberships, and to focus attention on NOW. This was by far our most successful time at Highland Mall. Thanks go to Nancy Van Beek, who coordinated the effort, and to Jennie Liston, Susan Allen, Miki Fountain, Mary Lou Fossey, Rachael Wahlberg, Lee Sterling, Margaret Putnam, and Sue Ricket for running the booth. We are next scheduled for the booth on Saturday, August 10; let's have new volunteers for the work this time. We need to get more NOW Guides into the hands of Austin women. People who work, please buy several - you'll find them easy to re-sell to oo-workers. If you know a Representative or Senator, see if you can place some Guides in that office to be sold. How about getting Guides into beauty shops? It would be good to get something different in there with the movie and fashion magazines, so I think owners would buy them. Fort Worth NOW has loaned us the sound/filmstrip series, The Silenced Majority. Filmstrlps cover the origins of the women's liberation movement and NOW; women, Jobs, and the law; women and education; and "rapping with the feminists," which includes thoughts from Kate Millett and Florynce Kennedy. Each filmstrlp runs 12 minutes, and two of them would make a very good program for local groups and organizations. We will be publicizing the availability of this program when we have people prepared to show it. If we can charge for the programs, this can be both a money-raiser and a consciousness-raiser for us. People interested in presenting the show, please call me. Barbara Duke State NOW News Texas NOW state Coordinator Martha Dickey recently toured the state, visiting a number of chapters; Austin NOW was delighted that she reached Austin Just in time for our June 5 meeting. She reports that a new chapter is in the prooess of convening in Killeen. The next State Board meeting will be here in Austin, on August 10, at 10 am at the Women's Center. Chapter President Barbara Duke will represent the Chapter, and Sue Ricket will attend as State Treasurer. If you see a need for statewide action on a project, ask Barbara or Sue to present it to the Board. Current state projects are the Education Task Force's Textbook Review work, and the Rape Task Force's city services survey (which was the springboard for the new Austin Rape Crisis Center). ______ Wpmen's Center _____ Mee___g_, Opening The Austin Women's Center is planning its official Opening Day Celebration on Monday, August 26 ( the anniversary of Women's Suffrage, now celebrated by feminists across the nation as Women's Equality Day).

There will be a Women's Center Board meeting on Thursday, July 11, at 7 pm to discuss plans for the opening. There will also be a regular business board meeting on Thursday, July 25, at 7 pm.
