Transcript PAGE 3 STATE PRESIDENT'S CORNER BY KATHY AUBIN EXCITEMENT IS IN THE AIR! THE HOLIDAYS ARE HERE AND THE NEW YEAR FOR YOUR STATE OFFICERS HAS JUST BEGUN - 1986 IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER. SINCE I TOOK OFFICE IN OCTOBER, THINGS HAVE BEEN HAPPENING TO BRING TEXAS NOW AND FEMINISM INTO THE FOREGROUND AGAIN. LET'S KEEP THE MOMENTUM GOING! TOGETHER WE CAN DOIT! I WAS IN BEAUMONT ON NOVEMBER 2 WHERE I KEYNOTED A WORKSHOP ON PAY EQUITY. BOTH LOCAL TELEVISION STATIONS COVERED THE EVENT. LATER IN THE MONTH I SPOKE BEFORE A PROFESSIONAL SECRETARY'S INTERNATIONAL CHAPTER IN HOUSTON TO 60 WOMEN ON THE SAME SUBJECT. ON THE 23RD, HOUSTON AREA NOW AND TEXAS NOW SHARED A BOOTH AT A PEACE AND JUSTICE FAIR IN HOUSTON WHERE WELL OVER 500 PEOPLE ATTENDED. WE GAINED A NEW NOW MEMBER AND MANY NAMES REQUESTING INFORMATION. I ALSO PARTICIPATED IN A WORKSHOP AT THE FAIR ON JOBS AND JUSTICE. IT WAS EXCITING AND THE PARTICIPANTS WERE INTERESTED IN NOW, WE HAVE BEEN REQUESTED TO DO A WORKSHOP ON SEXUAL HARASSMENT WITH THE COALITION OF LABOR UNION WOMEN SOMETIME IN THE SPRING. THE NOVEMBER 5TH ELECTIONS GAVE US SOME GAINS. AFTER THE LOSSES WE SUFFERED IN THE 1984 ELECTIONS, THISWAS GREAT. IN HOUSTON KATHY WHITMIRE AND ELEANOR TINSLEY WERE REELECTED, DESPITE THE STRAIGHT SLATE CANDIDATES. ANTHONY HALL DEFEATED HIS OPPONENT IN A RUN-OFF ELECTION NOVEMBER 26TH. ON THE NATIONAL SCENE, IN VIRGINIA, MARY SUE TERRY WAS THE FIRST WOMAN ELECTED ATTORNEY GENERAL. THE FIRST BLACK MAN SINCE RECONSTRUCTION, L. DOUGLAS WILDER, WAS ELECTED LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR. TERRY HAS A MIXED VOTING RECORD ON CHOICE AND ERA, WHILE DOUGLAS IS PRO-CHOICE AND PRO-ERA. THE FEDERAL CHILD SUPPORT ENFORCEMENT LEGISLATION THAT ALLOWS THE CUSTODIAL PARENT TO GARNISH WAGES OF THE FORMER SPOUSE TO COLLECT COURT AWARDED CHILD-SUPPORT PAYMENTS WENT INTO EFFECT IN OCTOBER. ALSO, THE AMERICAN COLLEGE OF OBSTETRICIANS AND GYNECOLOGISTS' PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT CONCERNING UNWANTED PREGNANCIES ARE AIRING ON TELEVISION. THIS WAS AFTER NOW WENT TO THE FEDERAL COMMUNICATIONS COMMISSION TO DETERMINE IF THE NETWORKS WERE VIOLATING THEIR OBLIGATIONS TO THE PUBLIC WHEN THEY REFUSED TO AIR THESE AS TOO CONTROVERSIAL. WHILE WE HAVE HAD SOME GAINS, WE CANNOT BECOME COMPLACANT. THERE ARE STILL MANY ROADS TO TRAVEL BEFORE WE CAN SLEEP. WHILE THE STRAIGHT SLATE WAS RESOUNDINGLY DEFEATED IN HOUSTON, AUSTIN IS GETTING READY FOR A POSSIBLE REFERENDUM ON ABORTION SOMETIME IN 1986. THERE WAS ALSO AN ANTI-CHOICE RALLY IN HOUSTON THAT GARNERED LOTS OF MEDIA COVERAGE AS WELL AS OVER ONE THOUSAND PEOPLE. THE STATE DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC HEALTH HAS ISSUED ITS GUIDELINES ON AIDS AND ABORTION CLINICS, BUT THE FAR RIGHT ISNT SATISFIED WITH THESE GUIDELINES THEY ARE LOBBYING THEIR MESSAGE FROM THE EDITOR KATHERINE H. AUBIN, HOUSTON, became the President of Tex as NOW, October 21st, following her election at the Texas NOW State Convention in Arlington. Kathy has served as President of Northwest Houston NOW and has chaired the Texas NOW Pay Equity Task Force. In her professional life she is the corporate manager of Human Resources Information Systems for a Fortune 500 company in Houston and is a certified compensation professional. She was named as one of the Outstanding Young Women For 1984. Below is Kathy's first message as Texas NOW President to the NOW members of Texas. SUPPORTERS TO HAVE CHANGES MADE. WE MUST ENSURE THIS DOES NOT OCCUR. MANY OF THE CHAPTERS THROUGHOUT THE STATE ARE PLANNING PROGRAMS, ACTIONS AND WORKSHOPS IN JANUARY TO RECOGNIZE THE HISTORIC ROE V. WADE SUPREME COURT DECISION, WHILE THE SUPREME COURT IS CONFERRING ON TWO STATE ABORTION LAWS. THESE ACTIONS ARE ALSO TARGETED TO RAISE FUNDS AND CONSCIOUSNESS FOR THE MARCH FOR WOMEN'S LIVES IN WASHINGTON, D.C. ON MARCH 9TH AND IN LOS ANGELES ON MARCH 16th. TEXAS NOW PASSED A RESOLUTION AT THE STATE CONVENTION TO BE AT THE WASHINGTON, D.C. RALLY. I PLAN TO BE THERE AND STAY OVER FOR THE MARCH 10 LOBBY DAY ON THE CIVIL RIGHTS RESTORATION ACT. PLAN TO COME WITH ME AND OTHER TEXAS NOW MEMBERS. I AM IN IT FOR THE LONG HAUL, SO LET US MAKE A DIFFERENCE TOGETHER. THE ELECTIONS ARE OVER, SO LET'S GET BACK TO THE BUSINESS OF TEXAS NOW: THAT OF BRINGING ALL WOMEN INTO FULL EQUALITY WITH MEN ON A SOCIAL, POLITICAL, AND ECONOMIC LEVEL. I PLAN TO RESPECT OUR DIFFERENCES AND UTILIZE ALL OF OUR STRENGTHS TO BRING TEXAS NOW INTO THE MAINSTREAM. I ASK FOR YOUR SUPPORT, COMMITMENT AND ACTION IN THE YEAR TO COME. TOGETHER, WE CAN DO ANYTHING. SEE YOU IN WASHINGTON, D.C. AND THROUGHOUT THE STATE IN THE COMING YEAR.
