Transcript 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) February 1982 Volume 2, #2. NATIONAL ORGANIZATION FOR WOMEN UNIVERSITY NOW at the University of Houston, founded 1981 M. J. Sommerfeld, President; E. G. Bald, Treasurer; R. Daunas, Membership; J. Evansgardner, Public Relations; s. Fbrschler, Action Tbam Cbordinator, CELEBRATION and CHOICES This last weekend, NOW at UH sponsored two major events to begin the new semester. On Friday, January 22, The Celebration of Wren's Art, a reception and exhibit, was held at the University Center Underground Wbrld Affairs Lobby. (The exhibit will remain on view through January 29th.) Approximately 50 people attended. While wa had hoped for a larger turnout, people experienced at organizing on campus assured us that 50+ people was an excellent turnout for an evening event. It is dramatically clear that to do better than the usual, much more work has to be done on publicity - we (I) did not get notice out to the Houston area papers in time for inclusion in weekend sections or onto local TV and Radio public service announcements. If anyone out there (HELLO, HELLO) has had a (deep, dark? long buried? repressed?) desire to "feet the Press", PLEASE volunteer and work to let the world know we are here. On Saturday, January 23, Choices, A Reproductive Rights Workshop was held to mark the ninth anniversary of Roe v. Wade (the Supreme Court decision guaranteeing women the right to abortion under certain circunstances). Turnout was smaller than the importance of the topic would suggest - approximately 30-35 people. Again UC administrators told us this was "standard". It was disapointing though, after so many worked so hard to organize it. We do now have an excellent Reproductive Rights Packet with all the latest women's reproductive health and legislative information in it, for a nominal charge of $2. Send order with money to us at Box 509, UC or come by our campus office during office hours. We activated our new telephone tree to remind our members to come out for these meetings. If you were not contacted, please contact Jeanne (521-2824) or RossAnn (924-5177) so that we can correct any difficulties. ACTION TEAM COORDINATION Our BIG PUSH for this semester has got to be to GET ORGANIZED! Action Teams can be mobilized both on a regular basis and quickly for emergency calls, and can produce a sizable voltrae of letters from permission cards; do phone banking to raise money or get permission for POM,s. When functioning, such teams have proven terribly effective. Elaine Kimsey, President of NWN0W, organizing in a largely "rightwing" area, raised $815 for the ERA in two hours of rhonebanking last month. UH NOW has facilities arranged at UH at in the Astrodome area. These actions are done in the evenings &/or weekends. If Elaine can raise that much money in her conservative area of town, imagine what we can do in our more liberal part of HDuston. Sherri Bbrschler is our Action Team Coordinator. (See calendar on cover for first meeting.) The ERA is alive but more workers are needed. Call her (645-5213) or Jeanne (521-2824)if you can participate. The next MDW at UH Program meeting will be held at The Birth Project, 1724 Bissonet Wednesday, february 17 at 7:30 Ebr directions call JoAnn (741-4009) or Jeanne (521-2824), ART AND REPRODUCTION What images do you have that are at all relevant to reproduction? Chances are that The Virgin Mary (and Babe) is the only image that enters your mind. "This is child care not reproduction" says Pat Marton, Rsgional Coordinator of The Birth Project. The systematic omission of the most basic hunan creative act is political. At our next chapter program meeting, we will explore these politics at the Houston home of The Birth Project with Rat Morton and hopefully, some of the local artists working on The Project and their work.
