Transcript NOW at the University of Houston, Founded March 1981 M. J. Sommerfeld - President; E. G. Feld - Treasurer; R. Daumas - Membership; J. Evansgardner - Public Relations; S, Forschler - Action Team Coordinator. THE EQUAL RIGHTS AMENDMENT SECTION 1: Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of sex. SECTION 2: The Congress shall have the power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article. SECTION 3: This amendment shall take effect two years after the date of ratification. (complete text) March 1982 Volume 2, #3 Newsletter Layout and Pasteup by Rossann Daumas Feminists Fight Back February proved why the University of Houston needs a chapter on campus. As many of you know, Lambda Chi Alpha posted a banner advertising a topless party to be held. NOW in conjunction with TEXPTRG protested the sexism of their advertising by hanging a sign next to their's which said 'THIS IS OFFENSIVE TO WOMEN NOW's presence on campus challenged a traditional way of thinking and advertising that objectifies women, without MOW raising consciousness and providing a focal point for feminism, this type of advertising would probably continue unquestioned. Key in raising the consciousness of this campus were Judy Swinney, the mow member who had the idea for the protest, Kelley Griffin, Cougar News Editor who wrote a feminist editorial on the subject of images of women in advertising, and RossAnn Daumas, NCW Membership chair and Composing Room Supervisor for the Cougar who insured that the photo of the protest would be taken. Marie Tighe, another NOW member, answered a letter in the fbugar which minimized the effect of sexist advertising on women thoughtfully 3nd managed to skillfully insert the entire (all 52 words) text of the Equal Rights amendment into her reply. Deborah Bell, a NCW member who works on campus also wrote to commend the Cougar and Kelley for their coverage of the proest. MOW at U.H. has adopted a policy of working to get increased emphasis on Women's Studies on campus. In the last newsletter, a petition for women's studies MARCH NOW at UH PROGRAM MEETINGS - TWO SESSIONS ON: ACADEMIC STATUS OF WOMEN Tuesday, March 23, 1982 1:00pm Castellan Room 7:00pm Castellan Room Invited Speakers will examine three major questions: 1. Are Women's Studies academically valid? 2. Should Women's Studies be departmentalized or academically "mainstreamed"? 3. What are the barriers against feminist research and/or research by women? This program is being organized by Ellen Seaton, Susan Marlow and Cynthia Reyna. (see Questionnaire on back cover.) was enclosed. Please try and get signatures and return the petition to the office. At the last business meeting, it was suggested that NOW at U.H. form a committee to study alternatives, strategies, etc. necessary to accomplish this goal. If you are interested in working on this, please contact RossAnn or me (see note below re contacts during Feb. and March) . • Another issue that surfaced last month at the University of Houston was the use of student funds to sponsor the showing of pornographic films on campus. Traditionally, X-rated films have been the most heavily attended and biggest money makers. However this time due to pressures, no fee was charged. Therefore no expenses were recouped and student fees paid for the movie completely. Pornography is a feminist issue. In order to develop formal policy for NOW at U.H. on the issue of pornography, a meeting, cleverly titled, Policy on Pornography has been set for March 31. In this meeting, we will explore the meaning of pornography to women and feminists, and try to arrive at a policy position that can be presented at the April business meeting for chapter consideration. Please attend. As a special bonus, you can also have the pleasure and priviledge, so far experienced by only a select few, of collating the newsletter. Jeanne Sommerfeld COME ON! LET'S GO! ERA ALL THE WAY! It's February - just 4+ months left to Ratify America. There are many who argue we can't win. In similar times, in the depths of the depression, FDR said the only thing we have to fear is fear itself. What ERA workers fear is that ERA supporters will be taken in by the can't win strategy of our opposition. If we accept the idea that the fight is already lost, than WE WILL lose. BUT WE WILL WIN if each of us does as much as she or he can. That conservative minority which opposes equality has much to gain if you accept their ERA-can't win strategy. They will maintain their unearned prerogatives. We all, men as well as women, have the rest of our human lives as equal persons to lose. Which is by way of announcing why Jeanne Sommerfeld and Jo ton Evansgardner will be spending the next few weeks in Oklahoma. The fight is still very much ON in the OK state. It is expected that the next all out work will be in Illinois. If you can get away in March to work in Illinois, call Julie Lapham at the national Action Center, 202/347-7279 for information.
