Transcript [ON LEGISLATION, cont'd if you are pro-choice, it is imperative that you contact your legislators today and tell them that you are opposed to these bills. We cannot wait until the bills reach the floor for by then it may be too late to stop them. Anti-choice forces are making themselves very visible and vocal. We must do the same. Even if your legislator is pro-choice, (s)he needs your support now. We must show our allies and our enemies that we too are watching. If you can't get to Austin to see your legislators, you can see them at their local offices. Write letters.,It only takes a few minutes to write a letter; it will take years to repeal any of these bills If they become law. STRATEGIES WITHIN THE FEMINIST MOVEMENT - HOUSTON AREA NOW MEETING - March 8 at 8 pm Diversity within the women's movement is often one of our biggest problems and Is also one of our greatest assets. In an effort to promote greater understanding so that we may wdrk more closely in the future, HANOW presents a panel discussion on The Different Strategies Within the Women's Movement. The speakers will be: Dr. Hilary Karp, UHCLC; Olga Soliz, WEAL; Carol S. Grande, business person: Theola Petteway, Black Women for Social Change; and representatives of St. Joan's International Alliance, the Socialist Worker's Party, and Stand Up Sisters. __________________________________________________________________________________________________________ LEGISLATION PROPOSED TO REFORM RAPE LAWS Housotn attourney Michol O'Connor researched and wrot the legislation to revise and reform Texas laws concerning sexual assaults. According to Ms. O'Connor, the proposed bills would strike the term "rape" from the judicial code (except in cases of statutory rape) and replace the term with "assault". This change would eventually decrease the stigma experienced by victims of the crime when they bring charges against the perpetrators. It will also result in stiffer penalties for some forms of sexual assault. In addition, the new legislation would eliminate the immunity from prosecution for rape now enjoyed by husbands and "live-in boyfriends". The legislation was introduced into the Texas Legislature in Ferbruary by Houston Sen. Gene Jones as S. B. 500 and by Representative Berlangas as H.B. 903. Both bills are awaiting hearings in committees in the Senate House, respectively. S. B. 500 was referred to the Senate Committee for Jurisprudence, chaired by Sen. Ray Farabee, and H.B. 903 was referred to the House Commitee for Criminal Jurisprudence, chaired by Rep. Lynn Nabers. Write these legislators and your own legislators to urge them to schedule hearings on these bills and to pass them as soon as possible. The address: The Honorable (Senator or Representative) P.O. Box 12068 Capital Station Austin, Texas 78769 NEWS FROM W.R.C.C. The Feb. 15, 1979 meeting of the Women's Rights Coordinating Council marked the beginning of a new term for newly elected Coordinator Phyllis Tucker. As Coordinator she suggested that the W.R.C.C. and its member organizations undertake a major project for 1979--a fundraiser for a facility for battered womeon in the Houston Area Women's Center. Ms. Tucker has asked that W.R.C.C. delegates canvas their organizations for opinions and ideas regarding either a single fundraiser organized by the W.R.C.C. or several fundraisers arranged individually by member organizations. Each organization would try to raise $100 for the center, or the one large W.R.C.C. event could try for $2800 ($100 per organization). Delegates should report from their organizations at the March 15, 1979 W.R. C.C. meeting. FUNDRAISER FOR STATE CONVENTION Avariety ofdoor prizes have been donated for the STate NOW fundraiser. Additional prizes should be solicited from local businesses; these can be dropped off at Barbara Duke's room in Denton. The drawings will be held Saturday night, March 24th, from 10 to 12 pm. From Olga Soliz, President of Houston WEAL We are dropping the Title IX charges against Sigma Delta Pi Fraternity at the University of Houston as the fraternity has ceased its former policy and practice of excluding women from mem- bership. We certainly hope that Sigma Delta Pi will find means to encourage more women to join the fraternity. The office of HEW was most helpful in bringing about the improved situation. HEW Civil Rights officers are coming down next week to investi- gate a charge against Rice University.
