Transcript HOUSTON CHAPTER NATIONAL ORGANIZATION FOR WOMEN I Vol. 5, No. 4 BROADSIDE April 1974 POPPY NORTHCUTT APPOINTED AS WOMEN'S ADVOCATE Mayor Fred Hofheinz fulfilled a campaign pledge made to the Harris County Women's Political Caucus by appointing Poppy Northcutt as Houston's first Women's Advocate. I was beginning to get a little twitchy as one month, then two months elapsed after Hofheinz' inauguration - and no appointment of a Women's Advocate had been made. Rumor had it that, although members of his staff had interviewed several women who were well-qualified for the position, Hofheinz himself had talked to none of them. Accordingly, I fired off a letter to His Honor on March 1 reminding him of his pledge. So did several other irate feminists. There is no way to tell how much effect this handful of letters had, but the appointment was made on March 12. Poppy Northcutt is an admirable choice for this important position. She has been a member of NOW for several years and is widely respected for her commitment to the feminist cause. She and Helen Cassidy are currently coordinating the forthcoming National Conference. I doubt that Northcutt's job will be an easy one. She will have to deal with a male- dominated city government, and nobody will fight harder to maintain the status quo than a boy bureaucrat. I expect that she will encounter everything from hostility to patronization. Of the two, I find patronization the more difficult to handle. As an example, when I was introduced to Tim Westmoreland at the Busch Brewery where he was campaigning for City Council last winter, I asked him what he would do for women if he were elected. "Make love to 'em", he said, and gave me what he thought was a dazzling smile. Westmoreland was elected. Northcutt takes office on April 1. The women of Houston will have a strong voice in city government. It's about time. Tan Dilbeck
