Transcript On Oct. 6 the U.S. Senate passed the extension resolution giving 39 more months for ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment. The deadline now has been extended to June 30, 1982. Earlier that week the Senate voted against two ammmendments to the resolution which would have accepted rescissions. These included an amendment allowing future rescissions only and a separate amendment accepting past and future rescissions. Both Texas Senators Tower and Bentsen voted to accept future rescissions. Then, Bentsen voted for the extension itself while Tower was one of only four Senators absent during the vote. (The resolution passed by 60-36.) Despite pessimism about the Senate vote, N.O.W. and many other groups supportive of women's rights galvanized E.R.A. supporters naionwide in a letter and telegram writing campaign to Congress. There is no doubt that this influenced the final vote. (As part of this grassroots effort, H.A.N.O.W. President Linda Jones coordinated volunteers in generating mail from the Houston area to Senators Tower and Bentsen in September.) Ratification efforts can now be focused on the 15 unratified states. Electorates this fall will defeat a number of anti-E.R.A. legislators and thus increase the success of ratification in those states. But more pressure will be absolutely necessary, and this can be exerted by people in the ratified states. More organizations and government agencies need to be enlisted in the economic boycott: make a point of getting the organizations to which you belong to cancel conventions and meetings in unratified states and reschedule them in ratified states (like Texas). Encourage your friends to join you in boycotting unratified states for vacations. And donations to help defray the costs of this summer's lobbying in Congress and the expenses ahead in ratifying the E.R.A. in three more states will will be needed and welcomed bv National N.O.W. at: N.O.W.
