Transcript Texas State National Organization for Women NEWSLETTER VOLUME II NUMBER 2 FEBRUARY, 1977 COORDINATOR'S REPORT The Texas Women's Political Caucus is delighted that the NOW State Council voted to join the Caucus Communications Network. A letter explaininq the Network will be sent to NOW Chapter Presidents & other members who siqned up at the Council meeting. We will be notified when Leqislators in our districts need to qet phone calls and letters from us on leqislaton affectinq women. If you know someone in a town with no NOW Chapter or Caucus, please ask them to join. If you are not on the list S. want to be part of the Network, send your name, address & phone number to TWPC, 711 San Antonio, Austin,7870 1. Texas NOW's State of the State address focused on the legal riqhts of homemakers S. was given at a press conference in the Capitol, Jan. 13, 1977. Our messaqe was picked up by AP & UPI & we got pictures & stories in newspapers in San Antonio, Dallas and Austin (front page). Other papers carried the story as did radio & television stations in Austin S. other cities. NOW chapters in Dallas, Houston and Lubbock had successful events the same day. Let's do it every year. The names of Texas NOW members who wish to plan for & participate in the state conference to be held by the National Commission on the Observance of International Women's Year have been submitted. In addition, each person should Send her own letter & resume to: (the Commission) at U.S. Department of State, Washinqton, D.C., 20520. Eleven chapters have sent contributions of $50 or more to Texans for ERA. That is not even half of the 23 active chapters I calculate we have. Please, check to see if your chapter has contributed and, if not, try to get your check to Texans for the ERA, 711 San Antonio, Austin, 78711. Pre-registrations must be in by March 18 for the National Conference, April 21-24 in Detroit. I've made my room reservation & am ready to join any group flight that is arranged — we understand it will have to depart from either Dallas or Houston. See you at the State Council meetinq March 10 in Dallas. There will be a special meeting on Title IX S. materials to help you monitor your school district' Barbara STATE-OF-THE-STATE MESSAGE (Followinq welcoming remarks.) We want to give you a briefing on the qeneral concerns of the present Women's Movement, our achievements, &, most importantly, the issues which we will emphasize in the coming year. Foremost among these is one which may come as a surprise! we plan to stress the role of the family & the riqhts of the person inteqral to it - the homemaker. From the outset of the Women's Rights Movement in the early *60's, our focus usually has been on the "professional woman." We have struggled to gain equal rights with men and, particularly, equal opportunities for women employed outside the home. One example of our success is the fact that the term "affirmative action" is now not only a part of our everyday language but a reality in the operation of most corporations & State Aqencies in Texas. True, women still hold only 7% of the "exempt" (or highest-paid) jobs in State Agencies, whereas, the ma jority of the state's lowest-paid, clerical workforce is made up of women. Bur "affirmative action" plans are well- established & being implemented daily in Texas* State Aqencies & major businesses. For example, there are "career ladders" to ensure the merit-promotion of women as well as ethnic minorities. Women are sitting on Boards of Directors of major banks, corporations, & some State Agencies they are establishing
