M. J. Sonmerfeld, President E. G. Feld, Treasurer R. Daumas, Membership J. Evansgardner, Public Relations S. Forschler, Action Team Coordinator ANATOMY IS NOT NECESSARILY DESTINY On January 22, 1973, the Supreme Court decided the case of Roe v. Wade. The result guarantees to women the right to early abortions under the constitutional right to privacy (although it allows states to regulate in the interests of the pregnant woman in the second trimester and holds that states may have a compelling state interest in prohibiting abortions to preserve the fetus' life during the third trimester.) The decision represents a monumental step forward for equality between the sexes. Until women have complete control over their reproductive lives, they will never have control over their destiny as individuals. However, the far-right led by the Catholic Hierarchy and religious fundamentalists, has coalesced on this issue and bitterly fought to eliminate/reduce this choice and many others available to women now. They have produced and disseminated large quantities of propaganda and misinformation on the subject. Several groups are holding film programs, etc. on this campus. To help maintain the rights recognized by Roe v. Wade and to counter the anti-choice propaganda, we are organizing a workshop to be held on Saturday, January 23rd. But we intend to cover the field of reproductive health broadly rather than limiting our attention to abortion, since each woman's control over her destiny requires knowledge and understanding of both the reproductive processes jind the medical empire that has grown up around it (and is still virtually entirely in the hands of traditionally sexist persons.) CELEBRATION According to Virginia Woolf, it is necessary for a woman "to have five hundred a year and a room with a lock on the door if you are to write fiction or poetry." This statement holds true as well for visual arts, dance or theatre, and scholarly endeavor. Unfortunately, it holds as true now as it did in 1928. (Too many of us know this fact through experience.) So this month's program meeting will be a celebration of women's art and a reception. There are two aims to having a reception celebrating women's art. The first is to provide a forum in which to display feminist art and to celebrate the striving and.the success in the production of this art. The reception will enable us to introduce NOW to the campus and let people know what our organization stands for. If you would like to help in the planning, organizing and production of this program, PLEASE call me, 521-2824. Some of the suggested workshops include: Legislative Outlook (Local, State and National) Pros and Cons of Available Birth Control Midwifery Women's Self Health History of Reproductive Rights in the United States Other possibilities might include: International Reproductive Rights Reflection on Art Produced by Women Relating to Their Reproductive Processes. The holiday and between term break have slowed down work on this project. WE NEED HELP. To make your contribution in making this important project a success, call me, (521-2824) or JoAnn (741-4009.)
