Transcript NOW at the University of Houston Montrose NOW APRIL 1983 Vol 3 #4 Vol 8 #4 President's Column On March 7th - 11th, NOW at U.H. presented daily lectures in celebration of Women's History Week. All the lectures were interesting and everything went smoothly, thanks to many NOW at UH members who made this possible. I would like to thank Cindy Funderburke, who coordinated the event and was responsible for recruiting and scheduling the guest speakers in addition to preparing most of the lunch available. The sale of her fresh made sandwiches and other contributions of fruit, home made cake and cookies gave us a profit of approximately $50.00. Cindy, you did a wonderful job! Also much thanks to Helen Ortiz, JoAnn Evansgardner, Madeline Mauk, Laura Linn, and Debbie McKenna who worked on everything else which needed to be done. I would also like to thank the guest speakers who enlightened us with topics in the lives of women and contributed their work to be published in the Student Publications. We hope this event will become a yearly one on campus because more people should have the opportunity to learn about our foremothers both of this country and other countries. In this way, we can also learn more about ourselves. Now at UH is hosting a Consciousness Raising Facilitators Training Workshop April 30, 9am-8pm, and May 1, l-5pm in the University Center. This workshop is being sponsored by CR Advisory Committee of Texas State NOW and everyone is encouraged to attend. This workshop will train feminists to become facilitators for CR sessions. However, interested persons are not required to have previously attended CR session. Adnission is free but you have to register to attend the 2-day workshop. I have registration forms available, so call me at 749-4142 after 6pm or if you have any questions call Texas State CR Advisory Committee Chairperson Sue Devaney at 999-6464(w) or 852-7265(h). At our NOW at UH Business Meetings on Tuesday the 15th and Wednesday the 23rd, members discussed the problems in getting the University Center Policy Board Committee (UCPBC) to adopt policy concerning the sale of pornographic literature in the Candy Shoppe of the UC and UC Satellite. A decision was made to prepare a petition "oppose(ing) the sale and distribution of literature and the showing of films that portray the torture, rape, humiliation or sexual objectification of women or men or children, and demanding) that the University Center Policy Board prohibit such activities in the University Center." Another group headed by Carol Cevallos has already attempted to get the policy changed in a similar direction. In my discussions with Karen Whitney, I learned that it would probably be fairly easy to get a policy adopted that would require all such literature to be individually covered and kept behind the counter to be sold only after a customer's request. Many in the University feel that plans such as we adopted have very little chance if any of passage and that we would save time and energy by requesting an under-the counter policy such as is used in airports. But members voted to work for a policy that would prohibit the sale of all such literature and a petition for use at information tables has been prepared. At this time NOW members are contacting the members of UCPBC to discuss the possibilities for the passage of such a policy. NOW at UH will be present at the March 31 UCPBC MONTROSE NOW'S PAGEANT OF AMERICAN WOMEN Those who attended the 1983 Women's History Pageant Saturday, March 19th at the Unitarian Church got a rare treat - the opportunity to understand our feminist history by witnessing it. The Director, Peggy Hall, president of Montrose NOW, got together an inspired 'troupe.' Seeing and hearing feminist forebearers, who understood and resisted oppression so bravely and so uniquely, is wery different and infinitely more moving than simply reading their words. The production was spare - nothing unnecessary, nothing pretentious - but effective. Every scene conjured up a sense of what it must have been like to have those feminist thoughts in those times when the very word "feminism" was unthought of. The acting, like the production, was spare - each actor creating a small vignette making some famous feminist human for us. It was all over much too quickly. Thanks and felicitations are due (in order of appearance) to Peggy Hall, Cathy Courtney, Janet Fisher, Elizabeth Whyburn, CI if Whyburn, Ken Fraley, George Jackson, Nico Hinderstein, Melanie Palmer, Caro Hinderstein, Cynthia Savoie, Lynne Mutchler. NOW at UH members are attempting to arrange for a repeat for July 19th - the 135th anniversary of the Seneca Falls Convention. With a volunteer cast of 14 persons, it will again take some expert, creative scheduling to get so many together again but like those who attended March 19th, those who come in July will be thankful for the effort. To celebrate our history by watching it re-enacted is one enjoyable way to be a feminist! Jo Ann Evansgardner meeting requesting the policy we voted for. There was no information on this subject in last month's newsletter as no meetings had been held to discuss it. However we will report developments as they occur as well as the results from the March 31 UCPBC meeting in our next newsletter since it is an too important a matter to be left to individual contacts among on-campus-daily members. Anyone is welcomed and encouraged to contact me if you feel you want to contribute and/or support this action. Finally, there will be a special program called The Future of Feminism: Who Cares? NOW Cares, which is spon- sored by all the NOW chapters in Houston. This program encourages all NOW members to invite a friend who is not a member but may be interested in joining. Kathy Webb, National NOW Secretary, will be the guest speaker and questions concerning the organization on the national level will be asked as well as questions to solve any particular problem on state and local level. Non-members are encouraged to attend so do your friend a favor: introduce them to NOW.* Membership is crucial to achieve the goals for women's rights. That is one reason why we have information tables in our chapter. Help in staffing information tables is needed NOW. Rossann Daumas *Laura Linn, Madeline Mauk, and I have tickets for sale.
