Transcript NOW at the University of Houston Montrose NOW February 1983 Volume 3, Number 2 President's Column Feminism Lives NOW at the University of Houston. This message will be printed on buttons, which will be available soon, as a symbol of our existence and activism at the University. Our past actions have been quite successful (please read inside for results of recent events) and monthly programs which are being developed for the Spring Semester are very exciting. On Tuesday evening, February 15 NOW at UH will have guest speaker Wilma Scott Heide in honor of Susan B. Anthony's birthday. Wilma Scott Heide has been an active feminist since the formation of NOW. She was the 3rd National NOW President and is presently a professor of Women's Studies & Public Affairs at Sangamon State University, IL. She is known for her ability to translate complex ideas on her feminist position into witty, quotable language. She has broad experience on platforms at universities as well as Congressional hearings and at political rallys. This event begins at 8 pm in the University Center, 2nd floor, Fort Worth Room. This will be a special evening which you will not want to miss. March 7th thru 11th is Women's History Week. We would like to invite everyone to attend our daily Brown Bag meetings Monday thru Friday of that week from 12 noon to 1 pm. There will be a different guest speaker every day. Please check our March newsletter for the topics and location. If anyone is interested in helping plan for this event or knows a faculty member who may want to be a speaker please contact me at 924-5177 (am). On March 10th feminists will celebrate International Women's Day. This is a good opportunity for NOW at UH to participate with ethnic student organizations on campus. The event will be coordinated with Women's History Week organized by NOW/Spring Branch and other NOW chapters in Houston. PLEASE REMEMBER THAT WE ARE NOW USING BULK MAIL. THIS MEANS THAT THE P. 0. DOES NOT FORWARD. THIS MEANS THAT IT IS MORE IWORTANT THAN EVER FOR YOU ~W~GIVE US YOUR ADDRESS CHANGES. I would like to thank Kindred Spirit and Heidi & Co. for advertising with us. Thanks to these two ads, we are able to have an extra page this month, which was really needed. I urge our readers to support them in return. Finally, please be sure to check the CALENDAR. In addition to our many chapter activities, there are many exciting feminist programs coming up. I particularly call your attention to the wonderful "NEW FEMINIST SCHOLARSHIP" series at Rice. It is a very sad commentary on our own University that the only overtly feminist programs at UH are those organized by a student group, most of whose workers are overworked as students, homemakers and workers and virtually all of whom are underpaid. Rossann Daumas President, NOW at UH Dear Montrose NOW, I know that you are all bright and quick and have al- ready figured out that we have merged our newsletter with N0W at the U. of H. This merger will allow us to use a bulk mailing rate, and send only one set of comps to our sister chapters. The number of chapters in the state is so large NOW, that sharing newsletters can be a financial burden. This is a welcome opportunity to stay in touch. The name HERIZONS came from the previous merger of other NOW chapters around the Houston area. Keeping the name intact and alive will allow us to keep in touch with our past. We have faulted the male historians for leaving us out, but we too have failed to hold onto our history. We are working on a project to correct some of that oversight. The Pageant of American Women was produced as a Bicentennial event and is about to reappear for Women's History Week, March 6 - 12,. We have divided into two time periods in order to include more of our foremothers. The second half will be prepared for August 26th. The February meeting, Sunday the 13th, 5 - 7 pm will be a pot-luck supper. The Women's Center now has a microwave so we can bring almost anything we want to eat. The meeting will be the first blocking of the pageant and hopefully the casting will be complete by then. We are most particularly in need of a Sojourner Truth. Finally, we are also in need of a vice president. The -duties of the office are to chair in the absence of the president and generally act as membership coordinator. We also need volunteers for the newsletter. See you un the 13th.
