Transcript We are poorer than men. And those of us who are minority women Blacks, Hispanic Americans, Native Americans and Asian Americans — must overcome the double burden of discrimination based on race and sex. We lack effective political and economic power. We have only minor and insignificant roles in making, interpreting and enforcing our laws, in running our political parties, businesses, unions, schools and institutions, in directing the media, in governing our country, in deciding issues of war or peace. We do not seek special privileges, but we demand as a human right a full voice and role for women in determining the destiny of our world, our nation, our families and our individual lives. We seek these rights for all women, whether or not they choose as individuals to use them. We are part of a worldwide movement of women who believe that only by bringing women into full partnership with men and respecting our rights as half the human race can we hope to achieve a world in which the whole human race men, women and children can live in peace and security. Based on the views of women who have met in every State and Territory in the past year, the National Plan of Action is presented to the President and the Congress as our recommendations for implementing Public Law 94-167. We are entitled to and expect serious attention to our proposals. We demand immediate and continuing action on our National Plan by Federal, State, public and private institutions so that by 1985, the end of the International Decade for Women proclaimed by the United Nations, everything possible under the law will have been done to provide American women with full equality. The rest will be up to the hearts, minds and moral consciences of men and women and what they do to make our society truly democratic and open to all. We pledge ourselves with all the strength of our dedication to this struggle "to form a more perfect Union." %J 3
