Transcript With the goal of making the powerful tools of computer technology available to more women, the Feminist Computer Technology Project was launched at the National Women's Studies Association Conference in Lawrence, Kansas, May 30 - June 3. The project was convened by Elizabeth Reinhardt of Los Angeles, a linguist and computer consultant who has been concerned for some years with furthering the utilization of computer technology by women. Prior to the conference, Reinhardt had contacted Dana Densmore of Boston, a feminist theoretician and computer consultant who had written an article published in the May 1979 issue of Ms. magazing exploring different possibilities for feminist computer technology. Densmore agreed to be a co- convenor for the project. A group of some fifteen women met with the convenors over the course of the NWSA conference and formally constituted itself as Feminist Computer Technology Project. Helen Eisen-Rotkopf agreed to be the initial Communications Facilitator and to mail out the first newsletter in July. Additional action items undertaken at the initial meetings include: Preparing a questionnaire to be distributed through selected women's computer technology resources and the potential constituency of the project; and obtaining funding from various private sources for a first experimental computing center to be set up in 1980. All women sharing the goals of the project are invited to join by sending a short description of their backgrounds and interest along with $2 to cover initial mailing costs to: Helen Eisen-Rotkopf, 4407-C Normandy Trace Drive, St. Louis MO 63121. Credit where credit is due! Where in Houston can you get a new car loan at 12% interest? Where can you get a share-secured loan at 10%? Where can you get the satisfaction of helping yourself and other women get the credit we need? At the Houston Area Feminist Federal Credit Union, of course! Based on the principle of co-operative self-help, this credit union can be an extremely useful institution for Houston women (men can belong too). But the HAFFCU can't be used if there isn't money to lend: i.e., if members don't make deposits as well as withdrawals. As a savings institution the HAFFCU is at a disadvantage in one respect: it cannot yet match the savings' interest rates banks offer because there is not enough growth. There is not enough growth because too few members have a regular HAFFCU savings habit. Since the credit union cannot break even, let alone pay a dividend, by borrowing money to lend to its members, share deposits are the only way it can have the money to lend you when you need a loan. Deposits need not be large to make a difference: if all 80OF members deposited ten (10) dollars a month, there would be $8,000 available each month to meet your financial needs! So how about it? "Put your money where your mouth is," join the Houston Area Feminist Federal Credit Union, and save regularly. Ps. Share-draft transfers from your regular bank to your HAFFCU account are available. Due to a staffing shortage, the office temporarily will be open irregular hours. Please bear with us. HAFFCU, 4600 Main Street, Rm. 217, 522-1702.
