IW-Day planned Houston's celebration of International Women's Day— a Women's Parade on March 6 and a cocktail party on March 8 are planned. A Bicentennial Women's Parade with the theme, "200 Years is Long Enough to Wait," is focusing on the national ratification efforts of the ERA. Gertrude Barnstone is chairperson of the event. Women and men wishing to work on the Women's Parade should contact Juneau Shepherd, UH Women's Advocate at 749-3388. The NW-Houston NOW Chapter is coordinating an International Women's Day cocktail party honoring women of the Foreign Consular Corps in Houston. The party is tentatively being planned for March 8 from 7 to 10 p.m. at the home of B. L. and Harry Jamail, 11125 North Country Squire Road, (Memorial area). If you would like to be a sponsor of the International Women's Day party, call Barbara Lane-Farley 461-3212 or 461-6075. Counselors Charlene Torrest, right, discuss plans for a mother- 28 at the Family Service Center, left, and Stella Edmondson, daughter workshop on February Exploring a new relationship "There is no other relationship that has as many possibilities or as many pitfalls as that of the mother-daughter," said Counselor Stella Edmondson, one of the coordinators of a one-day workshop, "The Mother- Daughter Experience." Open to women 18 and over, the workshop will be held February 28 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Family Service Center, 3635 West Dallas. "In the workshop we hope to recognize the pitfalls but emphasize the enriching possibilities that exist between mother and daughter," Charlene Torrest, counselor and co- coordinator added. "It is the ever-changing quality of the relationship that we wish to explore." The coordinators hope the adult participants will recognize each other's individuality and will examine the possibility of being friends. "This is not a day for heavy confrontation but rather one designed to open or improve communication between two adult women who just happen to be related to each other," the counselor concluded. The workshop is $30 per family ($10 deposit). Mothers and daughters wishing to participate should call 524-3881. Lilith, a planned city-wide women's center, needs to establish a good credit rating before it can purchase a building space to serve the total needs of Houston women. Lilith co-founder, Lynne Mutchler, put it this way: "In the same way a young woman on her own must establish credit, so Lilith, Unlimited, Womansplace in Houston, must establish a good payment record to prove both the seriousness of our purpose and our business acumen. "We would like to find a cheap (or free) house or office to start our telephone service, our feminist library, and our media service and printing facilities," Mutchler added. If anyone has a suitable space, they should contact Lynne Mutchler, 667-6932, Brenda Lewis, 668-3145, or Kay Whyburn, 667-8556. BOARD continued from page 1 Health Task Force for the Houston Inner City NOW, a chapter that strongly supported Alison Druck and Mary Lee Guidry, two nursing candidates for the Board of Managers. Heavey says, "Dr. Watson has done more to advocate for patients than any other board member. If he is replaced by a nurse - a minority or white woman - it will be another classic case of pitting minority men against women and making us all fight over the crumbs they throw at us. I think it's vicious." Heavey, herself a longtime advocate for better health care, has personally advocated that half the hospital board be composed of women because women make up half the population and, therefore, comprise half the hospital patient and employee population. As a spokeswoman for Inner City NOW, she wrote each commissioner a letter on behalf of the appointment of Druck and Guidry. County Commissioner Eckels replied: "Many years ago, I learned the importance of having the woman's point of view in Boards of this nature and I am proud of the fact that Ms. Barbara Schachtel has been on the Board for some time. I think Mrs. Schachtel is extremely well qualified having been so closely related to the public service area to which her husband is so dedicated. I would like to see an expansion of this to include the nursing profession. "I do not, however, find that there is an opening suitable for the appointment of either of the fine ladies you have recommended. Please be assured that careful consideration was given to all areas of responsibility and in my determination, the reappointment of Quentin Mease and Dr. Alexander bringing with them Mr. Danny Knowlton is in the best interest of the hospital and the taxpayers of Harris County" Judge Jon Lindsay wrote the Houston Inner City NOW chapter as follows: "I supported Dr. Alexander's reappointment and thus voted against Commissioner Bass' substitute motion to name nurse Alison Druck. In doing so, I by no means opposed having a nurse on the board. Indeed...I definitely favor a nurse representative. It just seems that next year, when four of the board's seven seats come up, is a likelier time for making that appointment."
