Transcript HCWPC Harris County Women's Political Caucus 3602 milam houston 77002 (713)524-5*3 NEWSLETTER JANUARY 1975 ERA UPDATE By Barbara L. Williams Many HCWPC members have visited their legislators during the month of December to discuss the ERA. Most reports were optimistic--the legislators would rather not deal with the issue since no matter how they vote, they will be alienating a portion of their constituency and since the issue will take up a great deal of valuable time needed for researching other bills. However, several legislators report that they are receiving much mail on the ERA. Ron Waters' office, for example, reports that more mail has been received on the ERA than on any other single issue. For some districts, the "anti" mail exceeds the "pro" mail by a 40-to-l majority. Conclusion—WE NEED TO INCREASE THE PRESSURE—WRITE A LETTER OR POSTCARD TODAY. The holidays produced a slack in the number of ERA letters to the Houston newspaper editors. Just when I was beginning to feel that we'd worn out the opposition, I noticed that another "anti" letter appeared In the Chronicle Viewpoints column. We need to respond to these letters and re-iterate the separation of issues. The ERA does not mean federally-sponsored day care centers, creeping communism, birth control, loss oT~jobs for men, abortion or any number of other Issues the opposition associates with it. Remember, the ERA was a natural conclusion to the 19th Amendment. Onee women gained the right to vote, they deserved the right to be Included in the Constitution. The ERA will give them that right. Texaas for ERA—the statewide coalition of many civic and women's clubs— met in Austin January 4th. The Coalition agreed to continue to fight the rescission movement. An ERA coordinator will continue to gather informatioi. about opposition activities, to keep a headcount on the legislators and to cjmmunieate with citizens all over the state who support the ERA. A press conference will be held in Austin when the Coalition meets in February. For further information about Texans for ERA, call Barbara Williams at 528-4141 Cont* on next pg.
