Transcript • • • For Everyone A visible presence at the March on Washington, members of N0W-UH felt the march was so important, many were willing to miss class rather than miss the march. Photos on pages by Michael Williams. The march, though, restored our spirits. Imagine that you belong to (or support) a minority that is despised by society. It could be the Jews in Nazi Germany or blacks in the United States before the civil rights movement, or differently-abled people today, or women seeking equality. Then imagine that hundreds of thousands turned out in support of your cause. Imagine the streets of Washington filled with those who feel as you do — that your kind of person (or your daughter's, or son's, or friend's) is worthy of an all-out effort to change the minds and hearts of Americans. That is the way we all felt. Walking down the street in Washington DC was like walking down the streets of your own neighborhood (if you live in a neighborhood where everyone is friendly and glad to see you). Sunday, the day of the march, was overcast and chilly. It looked like it would rain, and it did. A light, fine mist dampened our clothes and paper signs, but not our spirits. (Not our sign, either, by the way. It was made of waterproof vinyl.) As we waited in the enormous crowd at the mall in front of the Washington Monument, we thought we were part of the largest march on Washington since the Civil Rights movement in the early 60's. The march started WE CUJWi TO n»o> Nt* ft i? -fttiuir ww.viai. XX) CAS Stt^fUf fcWtt M 1ANSS *M towns UNGur£Tr,UW»*l! fcfl<»RO ton U»l TMl ^>R POWTUi >a r ji6i TW. it u*T/ IN51U!'.'

We don't know how long it took to get all the marchers from the ellipse to the capitol, but we knew as we hurried to the airport that the march had been a triumph for the cause of civil rights for les bians and gay men. Media experts varied jj their estimates of the size o the march from 50,000 t( 200,000. Ellie Smeal, formei president of NOW, in consul tation with the Metropolitan police and MTV, based on ar aerial photo of the ellipse laic over a grid, said 500,000. Whatever the final tally oi marchers, those of us wht representee NOW at thi University o: Houston, warmed by the cheers of th( crowd as m marched, sure ii was a momen tous occasion We had helpec place the move ment for gaj and lesbiar rights on th( national agenda. We got of: the plane exhilarated, prouc to have played a part and to have freed ourselves fron some outmoded shackles Knowing there was mud more to be done, we were sat isfied for the moment to hav( done our part. — Jo Am Evansgardnei 48 University of Houston
