Transcript ! I ! The WAND is a monthly publication of Womynspace, an organization designed by and for womyn, and operated by a steering committee. Opinions expressed in articles printed herein do not neccessarily reflect the views of the editors of the WAND or the Womynspace organization as a whole. Submissions to the calendar must be camera-ready,with three inch columns. Groups may send us notice of their regular meetings and special events by the 15th of the month for the next month's issue. We are glad to network with other groups that work for social change and share a feminist perspective. Submissions of articles, poetry and cover art should have positive, coalition building content and will be printed at the discretion of the Newletter Committee. Submissions must be signed; specify your byline or if you wish your name to be withheld. Women contributing articles are invited to the WAND layout, usually on the 4th Tuesday at 6:30pm (check the WAND calendar). It is helpful to include a phone number with any submissions so we can call you if significant editing is required due to lenght.etc. We print as much as space allows; current events are first priority. We would like to have a portfolio of material we could use in future WAND issues when we have a quiet month with less events and more space for articles or poetry. For return of any material, please enclose a stamped, self-addressed envelope. We need community support to ensure the WAND is a comprehesive networking directory for the women's community in Houston. Womynspace is a 100% volunteer organization. __W-__fc_k-k-____fc WW WW WW J f rORM <l Advertising rates for the WAND \ \ Camera ready artwork may be sent along with the payment for the ad to WOMANSPACE.

Womynspace produces a Halloween and Valentina dance and two retreats, usually in the fall and spring; events are womyn only and chem-free. We respect the diversity of the women's community and at this point of Womynspace's herstory, many of our active members are not chem-free, but we feel it benefits the community to provide chem-free space. Essentially, chem-free means smokers smoke outside and drinkers drink at a restaurant or bar after the event with other Womynspace supporters. Finding affordable rental space for dances and other events has always been a problem. Aquiring permanent community space is a long-term goal of Womynspace. □ YES, I want to join Womynspace and become part of the dream. Enclosed is $ dues for one year.

Women & Poverty Houston Area NOW is the host chapter to the 1991 Texas National Organization for Women State Conference to be held at the Holiday Inn-Medical Center, October 25-27, The theme is "Women and Poverty." Women are still being paid an average of 62 cents to every dollar paid to a man in the same job (even when women have the same amount of education and experience). There is even greater disparity for women of color. The "glass ceiling" forces women to remain in lower paying jobs, with middle management the highest level they can hope to obtain. One only has to look at the number of female headed households (single women with children) living in poverty to understand why poverty is a concern for NOW. The conference will feature a number of interesting workshops including: "Ageism; Women and Finances, the real issues", Women and AIDS; Growing Risks, Growing Concerns", "Global Feminism"", "Childcare/Child Support", "Healthcare for poor women" and "Homophobia; A Weapon of Sexism". Keynote speakers will be Nikki Van Hightower and Ada Edwards. Ms. Van Hightower is the former director of the Houston Area Women's Center and former Harris County Treasurer. Ms. Edwards is a community and justice activist. Saturday evening entertainment will include a set by Marianne Joyce M. Gayles, Ph.D. Clinical Psychologist • Life Transitions • Relationship Concerns • Career Decisions • Parenting Issues • Trauma Resolution • Depression & Anxiety 667-6047 6300 W. LoopS.#215 O.
