Transcript Page 2 Barbara's Column DECEMBER 197^ NEWSLETTER Wet weather on Nov. 9 didn't keep the crowds away from Highland Mall and the NOW booth. We talked with many people about NOW, gave away lots of brochures and "ERA YES" buttons, and sold 15 NOW Guides. Many thanks to the women who helped. An ERA coalition Is In the making as the threat to Introduce legislation to rescind grows stronger In Texas. Those who want rescission seem unaware that Texas passed an Equal Legal Rights Amendment to our state constitution In the fall of 1972. None of the dire consequences predicted by ERA opponents ha6 occurred, and some good legislation for women has been passed. Unfortunately, logic does not affect the opposition. The coalition of diversified groups on the Issue of equal rights for women should provide the unified effort that will be necessary to head off the backward step of rescission. The Economy Co. of Oklahoma, a book publisher, has filed a $30 million suit against thrwe women whose testamony, according to the company, caused the State Board of Education to reject the adoption of their 7th and 8th grade readers. Linda Elchblatt of Houston NOW, who represented the Continuing Task Force on Education for Women, is one of the three; the CTFEW Is a coalition of Texas NOW chapter education task forces. One of the other women represented the D.A.R.; the third spoke for herself. Their testimony contended that the books contained too much violence and crime. Linda agreed, and also gave testimony showing the sexist bias of these books. The company is accusing the women of "racism, bigotry, sexism, prejudice and provincialism." I hope all the NOW membership turns out for the election meeting and entertainment on December 4. Barbara Duke from the Austin Women's Center Coordlnator Give the Austin Women's Center a Christmas present I We need donations of baked goods and/or money for our Bake Sale, scheduled for Saturday, Deo. 14, at the Potpourri in the Village Shopping Center (on Anderson Lane, one block west of Burnet)* 10 am to 9 pm (or until we run out of baked goods). Proceeds will go to buy an answering device for the Center telephone. To donate baked goods (homemade only, please), contact Gladys Glnn, 441-2241, or bring them to the booth on the morning of the 14th. Donations of money will be accepted at the NOW meeting on December 4. Our first Workshop, on Sexuality and Alternate Lifestyles, was held In October and was an exciting success, with over sixty women attending. The Center Board will meet on Thursday, December 5» at 7 pm to discuss plans for the next Workshop. We will also make plans for our next Bake Sale, set for January 18 at Southwood Mall. Nancy Van Beek ____-__£____ Class Offered Joe Alvarado will be teaching a free one-month course In self-defense on Saturday mornings, 10 am to noon, beginning December 7, at the Soryu Karate Institute, 1234 S. Lamar. The course will stress how to escape from an assailant, how to prevent rape. The course is for women only; he asks that no women under 18 attend unless accoEpanled by their mothers each timet and that rape victims not attend, as acting out potential rape situations is likely to be difficult for them to bear. Dress comfortably, e.g. Jeans. For more information, call the Soryu school, 441-3216, or the Rape Crisis Center, 472-RAPE.
