Transcript Chicana Caucus "Yo Soy Tu Hermana, Yo Soy Chicana, Dame TuMano, Vamosa Volar, Bien Dice El Dicho, Si Sangra Mi Hermana Yo Tambien Sangro, La Herida Es Igual. " - Vigil The Chicana Caucus met Friday afternoon to discuss the proposed Plan of Action and its ramifications for Chicanas. Special emphasis was placed on the plan's inclusion of statements encouraging bilingual and bicultural services and programs designed for Hispanic women. A reception for the caucus, sponsored by various Houston Chicana and Chicano groups and hosted by Evelyn and Leonel Castillo, was held Friday evening Elma Barrera, co-chair of the Housto: committee, introduced speakers who in "We believe that we did so well on the state level in placing members and delegates because NOW has had a long record of being in the forefront of the fight for women's rights," she said at a press conference. Smeal insisted that NOW intends to do "nothing" if anti-ERA forces attempt to disrupt the conference. "We're here to serve as delegates and to participate in the conference itself," she said. Smeal said the IWY, with its pro- and anti-ERA forces,-•was' like a Democratic Party convention where the Jimmy Carter nonty delegates decided to stand and fight. Their supporters would have an alternative conference and at that conference they would say, 'Even though the Carter Democrats won those primarieSj it doesn't matter. They weren't fair. We're the majority and we're going to show it by having some members over there. "But," Smeal said, "I don't think they'd fool anybody under those conditions. Everybody would know they had lost." NOW No. 2 The newly elected president of the National Organization of Women Legal Defense and Education Fund, Gene Boyer, criticized President Carter Friday for his failure to appoint women to important judicial posts. "Carter has named 10 new appellate court justices and not one is a woman," >*" eluded Kingsville State Rep. Irma Rangel, the highest ranking Chicana official in Texas, and IWY commissioners Cecilia Preci- ado Burciaga of California, Carmen Del- Delgado Votaw of Maryland, Rhea Mojica Hammer of Illinois and Gloria Steinem of New York. Poetry readings and skits were presented by Teatro Lagrimas and Mujeres Unidas of Houston. A meeting of the Hispanic Women's Caucus is scheduled for Saturday, 6:30 p.m., in a location which is yet to be designated. Marta Torres Blacks Map Plan of Action i Black participants in the IWY Conference, sensitive to the Black woman's "long, harsh history of vital concerns for civil liberties and their long struggle for the rights of women," mapped plans Friday to insure that their concerns are included in the final conference report. The plan includes 21 recommendations concerning education, employment, political participation, socially progressive services and statutory and constitutional law. Officially titled "A Working Document For Review and Ratification," the plan was prepared earlier this year by 10 women from governmental, educational and social organizations and businesses who feared that Black women's concerns would be overlooked at IWY. It notes the Black woman's special role in the women's'movement, contending that "as victims of both racism and sexism," Black American women "have been crucial figures at the juncture of the Black movement and the women's movement. "Their past," it says, formed their interpretation of issues and priorities central to both movements." The document also contends that because Black women "have a different past, a different present and, because of institutionalized racism, a different future from that of white women, it is doubtful that anyone else in the United States can or should speak for them." Specifically the plan calls for: . a concerted effort by the federal and state governments to broaden educational opportunities for Black women on an equitable basis • full employment and full utilization of Black females at upper as well as entry levels of the labor force ■ support for Black women who are running for political office . support from the federal government for the development of programs aimed at improving the plight of the aged and improving health care caucuses . insuring reliable child care services guaranteeing maternity benefits • extending labor standards relevant to the health and welfare of workers now excluded - the eradication of all forms of discrimination - support of the ERA . procedural due process. The document also stresses Black women's commitment to unity with white women and warns of the "danger of a distorted analysis which points to a lingering central conflict of the women's movement as one between women of the minority and the majority." The Black caucus also heard a Keynote speech by Dr. Elizabeth Kuntz, North Carolina assistant state superintendent for public instruction. Mary Violet Burns Pro-Plan Caucus Meets Pro-Plan advocates, who endorse passage of all 26 proposals being considered at the IWY Conference, met Friday to plot floor strategy. The meeting, held at the Sheraton- Houston Hotel, included discussion of anticipated opposition and organizational intelligence. The Pro-Plan group opted to use "woman power" rather than electronic devices in working the convention floor. A woman from each state was selected to explain the Pro-Plan position to delegates on the convention floor, which was divided into 20 areas. The group believes the strongest Pro-Plan opponents will use stalling tactics to prevent discussion and enactment of the proposals because the opposition probably does not have enough votes to defeat the plan. A secondary opposition group, the Susan B. Anthony section, is believed to be more moderate because it opposes only four issues in the plan-full employment, sexual preference, national health insurance and international peace. NOWNo. 1 Although more delegates to the IWY Conference belong to the National Organization for Women than any other organization, NOW President Eleanor Smeal%empha- sized Friday that NOW "in no way participated in the organizing of the conference." PHOTO BY CHARLEY KUBRICHT forces beat George Wallace of the American Party with perhaps 80 or 85 per cent of the vote. This, the Pittsburgh homemaker said, would leave the "Jimmy Carter delegates in the clear majority. But let's say the mi- Boyer said. "Clearly next to nothing is being done to correct the incredible under- representation of women as federal judges." The Beaver Dam, Wis., feminist also noted that only one of the 97 circuit court judges on the bench today is a woman. The underrepresentation ot women is "too severe to be remedied through politics as usual," Boyer said, "Extraordinary efforts are called for." She also said that women must be appointed to the panels that recommend appointments to the bench. It's the most imoortant women's meeting of the century.'
