Transcript Women on the Move By Karen Malnory A 2,000-mile journey that began September 29, ended when the equality runners completed the last lap of their journey from Seneca Falls, N.Y. A crowd of approximately 1,000 women and men waited in a sprinkling rain to greet the w^men. As the band struck up the "Yellow Rose of Texas" and the huge crowd raised banners and placards amidst applause and chants of ERA, the athletes and their entourage of commissioners stormed onto the Albert Thomas Convention Center site. Athletes bearing eight American flags led the relay followed by Billy Jean King, Olympic swimming gold medalist Donna deVerona and 1960 Olympic track gold medalist Wilma Rudolph. Other runners formed a circle around conference presiding officer Bella Abzug who sported her famous trademark, a wide-brimmed hat. As the distinguished group moved forward, the diverse group of well-wishers edged around the stage for a better position. Signs and placards showed support for the Pro-Plan, latino feminists, Wages for Housework and Lesbians for Wages for Housework and for "Women's Rights American as Apple Pie," the slogan of Wisconsin feminists from the National Organization for Women (NOW). There was a small fracas when the Rev. Billy Joe Clegg brought in his two signs saying "equal rights for Christians," and "IWY means immoral women's year." The reverend announced his candidacy for governor of Oklahoma on the other sign, but he showed little Christian integrity when he scuffled several women who stood in front of his signs. Dressed in jogging shorts and blue t-shirts bearing "Women on the Move" over the sign of the dove and the equality symbol, the runners encircled the commissioners and guests on the stage. Commissioner Liz Carpenter introduced Bella Abzug, who gave this impassioned message: "Some run with a torch, others run for political office, but none of us run for cover and we won't stop this journey until we get equality all the way." The torch of equality was then passed from Billy Jean King to Susan B. Anthony, the grandniece of the famous suggragist. Anthony echoed her famous ancestor when she said, "Failure is Impossible." Nikki Van Hightower, Houston's Women's Advocate, said the 2,000-mile torch relay was a long and fatiguing journey for all the runners just as the women's race for rights and equality has also been long and tiring. JANICE RUBIN FEMINIST PUBLISHING . .. the art of the future "The feminist novel is revolution. Women'S art iS politiCS ... We are reclaiming our language for ourselves with a very strong sense that we have been divided from it. Feminist presses are magnificently privileged to have the art of the future in their hands." June Arnold Why women must publish women Words and wisdom from earlier feminists were lost because women failed to maintain publishing power. THe $4 billion a year book business remains hostile to much of the serious work coming from the women's movement In response, more than 150 feminist presses and publishing houses are operating today. They dare to publish authors and topics considered too risky by the patriarchal press. Their books are written, printed and distributed entirely by women. They need your support.
