Transcript N O.W. Bay Area Chapter National Organization for Women Volume VII, Number 5, May 1979 Program for May: Van Hightower on HOUSTON WOMEN'S CENTER 7O0 P.m* Thursday May 3rd. The Uniting Church. El Camino Real & Reseda Dr. Nikki Van Hightower, our Womenfs Advocate fin frock or out! f will narrate the slide presentation recently developed to tell the story of the Houston Shelter for Abused Women which opened last June. The Shelter, itself the outcome of three years struggle spearheaded by Nikki and several other tenacious women, marks the beginning of the larger Women's Center concept manifesting a dream in which area feminists generally unite. 'Slide show1 doesn't adequately describe this supurb presentation which is the PR vehicle for selling Abused Women's Center to the larger community. The wonderful sensitivity with which the visual material is put together is exceded only by its technical and artistic excellence. Even so, the narration is what makes this experience so special fl think!. Nikki's 'formal narrative' is fast-paced with just enough detail to pull the story together. But, throw her a question, and she responds easily with whatever depth of detail desired.% At this point I must confess that I have seen this presentation twice and cherish both experiences. Best of all I enjoyed being able to go back and relive the gestational struggle-- pinpointing who was involved where, the false hopes and hassle, and finally the reality of the present Shelter. Such small beginnings at the cost of so much 'self (from those persistent few) in the face of such overwhelming need (which is well depicted by the slide presentation) can only be addressed adequately by tapping the business and corporate community as well as women s organizations and committed individuals. Gaining entrjj to foundational and philanthropic type support seems as necessary to underwrite an adequate facility as it sterns impossible -- for trouble-makers (feminists) to achieve. Nevertheless, Shelter proponents are actively analyzing the process with real intent to somehow break into the network that communicates with big dollars. Until then, survival of the Shelter will depend on ust the aforementioned committed women both in organizations and as individuals. BE THERE 7:30 Thursday evening, May 3, AND PARTICIPATE WITH NIKKI IN THIS REMARKABLE EXPERIENCE. Formal presentation lasts about 25 minutes with time afterwards structured specifically to your questions. Your scheduled program chair will not be there because of a conflicting union commitment -- must be conspicuously present to meet flight arriving Intercontinental at 6:30 p.m. or conspicuously absent forever thereafter. In the face of this disasterous conflict, Dorothy Howard graciously 'volunteered' to serve as chair. ***See fU for fact stetor^SUkr Nancy Whitecotton
