Transcript Texas State National Organization for Women NEWSLETTER Volume I, Number 4 September, 1976 WE ARE NOT ALONE As members of the National Organization for Women, we are part of a group 62,000 strong in the United States. NOW, founded in 1966 in Washington, D.C., today has from 20 to 27 chapters in Texas with a combined membership of 2,000. If we are part of small struggling groups, perhaps in a community with little understanding of our goals or even hostility toward any such group, we can take heart at the explosion of forming and growing women's groups. NOW is a part of not merely this nation's continuing fight for liberty and justice for all, but also a world-wide movement. Ms. magazine recently listed feminist publications from around the world. Fortunately, too,many other women's groups who at first feared "women's libbers" are coming together in coalition with feminists. We are discovering our common goals and aims and banding together to combine our numbers into an effective force with clout to achieve our demands. Some of these organizations are the National Women's Political Caucus, the League of Women Voters (which has begun to get into the political arena rather than merely observing it), the American Association of University Women (whose plan for action was recently defined as, "Get into politics."), the National Nurses' Association, the Business and Professional Women, and the Women's Equity Action League (which often works with ACLU), and Church Women United. All the groups make up a total of over one million women. In addition, women in work controlled by organized labor are beginning to fight for their rights, women in the Episcopal and Roman Catholic Churches are demanding equal status, public school teachers recently formed a Women's Caucus at the National Education Association national convention, and women in academia have formed groups. These women are writing scholarly articles and publishing journals to join the ever-increasing stream of books, small magazines, and newspapers written by feminists. We are not a passing fad which will go away. We will not turn back. Our local NOW chapters will grow and become stronger. Each one of us is important, and we will not be denied. We are legion. Dortha Dee Vaughan, vice-president. Greater Beaumont Area NOW HOW TO READ MAGAZINES AND HELP NOW TOO: Need to renew some magazine subscriptions?

HIGHLIGHTS OF THE STATE CONVENTION Sara Weddington was the Keynote Speaker of the NOW state convention held in Abilene, May 28, 29, and 30. The state representative from Travis County stressed the need for continued support of the ERA. She said that when the legislature convenes in January, 1977, we should be prepared to lobby for women's issues, including abortion, a commission on the status of women, a state displaced homemakers bill, battered wives, day care, family planning services, and insurance regulations. The newly elected state officers are Barbara Duke of Austin NOW, state coordinator; Tommie Brent, Beaumont Area NOW, communications coordinator; and Teri Chandler, Dallas County NOW, treasurer. They will hold office un^il the next state convention.
