She will per- form with pianist J.T. Thomas at 8pm, at University of Houston's Central Campus, Agnes Arnold Hall.

HOUSTON AREA NOW - TASK FORCES MAXIMIZE IMPACT by Aileen McMurrer The women's movement is facing a critical time right now, with increasing struggles and setbacks in several areas. Because of Houston Area NOW's structure (2 monthly meetings, one designated for programs, the other for business) our impact on the community is limited. Other chapters have supplemented their pro- grams by forming committees or task forces on different issues, that work some- what independently from the chapter. Presently we have the excellent opportunity to maximize our impact by forming a task force on Abortion to work in coalition with Bay Area NOW's task force on Choice and a task force on the ERA to work in coalition with the ERA support Committee. Now the idea of HANOW having task forces will not work unless individuals are willing to commit their time and energy. Being on a task force will nmean attending a couple moremeetings a month. It will involve such nitty gritty work as stuffing envelopes, making phone calls, speaking to other groups as well as helping to plan strategy. It's not all fun and games, but it's the kind of work that produces re- sults. It also has it's rewards: 1) knowing that you are working--actually doing something!--to better women's position in society and 2) meeting and talking to other feminists in the community. If you've never done something like this before, you needn't worry, your ideals and plain old 'elbow grease' wil be appreciated and now is the time to start learning. If you would like to become more involved please think about this. We will be dis- cussing this at the March 1st Action Meeting. The women's movement is not out there someplace, it's right here with you and me. ***************************************************************************************** SOCIOLOGY RESEARCHER NEEDS YOUR HELP Sociology, like many other disciplines has been dominated by traditionally male perspectives. Lori Hora, a graduate student in sociology at the University of Houston has asked NOW to help with the research for her thesis. She is studying the different decision-making processes which husbands and wives use when making decisions which concern their household If you are one of an Anglo couple legally married and presently lving together, Lori would like you to volunteer to be interviewed. A male interviewer will interview the hus- band while Lori interviews the wife. She says the interviews will be conducted simul- taneously (throoug separate) and othe respon- ses of one spouce will not be shared with the other. Interviews will be approximately one hour. If you meet Lori's criteria, and would like to participate to further understand- ing of the roles men and women perform in our society, contact Lori at 749-3263 or 496-9100. ****************************************** WORKSHOP ON PRESS CONFERENCES SCHEDULED by Hanna Schechter SW, Montrose, NW and Houston Area NOW are invited to an "emergency" workshop on writing and presenting press releases, and talking with the press. If you are interested in attending or in helping plan, leave a message on the women's center line, 422-1849. ****************************************************************************************** ABORTION LEGISLATION INTRODUCED IN LEGISLATIVE SESSION reported by Hanna Schechter These bills have been introduced to the legis- lature, dealing with abortion. The quotations are from the bills. 1) H. B. 125 and S. B. 117. Identical bills intro- duced by Walter Mengden in the Senate and Gene Jones in the Houst. This bill would amend the Texas Family Code to grant to "...a living hu- man fetus removed from the body of a woman" the "same rights, powers and priveleges as are granted by the las of this state to any child born alive after the normal gestation period." The bill would make the fetus a ward of the state if necessary. 2) S.. 118, Sponsored by Walter Mengden. This bill would prohibit any medical facility "sup- ported in any way by funds raised through tax- ation"from allowing its facilities to be used for the performance of an abortion "ex- cept to save the life of the mother or when the pregnancy resulted from sexual assault." 3) S.B. 119, Sponsored by Walter Mengden. This bill would prohibit any political sub- division from contracting an employee health insurance plan that would pay for abortions, except to "save the life of the mother or if the pregnancy resulted from sexual assault." All 4 of the bills request a suspension of the regular rules that require 3 hearings of a bill. Mengden and Green say it is nec- essary because this legislation is so pres- ing and because there are so many bills to be heard. continued next page--
