Presiding in August: Rachel Reed (488-426l)f Betty Yancey (534-6244) ERA UPDATE Word has come from Ellen Mendoza, Houston, that the John Birch Society and the American Party are warming up for an all-out attach on ERA in the 1977 legislative session. Such efforts can be counteracted and diffused if action is begun now by: (a) seeing that other organizations you belong to (PTA, church groups, civic clubs, etc.) schedule an ERA program this fall or winter. They plan now for programs, so ACT NOW. (b) Find out the positions of legislative candidates and make sure they are correctly informed about ERA. Let the candidates know that there are thousands of informed, registered voters in Texas who are supporting the ERA and are interested in how the candidates view the Equal Rights Amendment, (c) Monitor the media! If an article or program on radio and T.V, present ERA favorably, write or telephone approvals immediately. An anti-ERA presentation should elicit an immediate protest and a request for equal time. Almost all women's magazines are planning pro-ERA articles in July, 1976, issues. Phyllis Schlafly, a&ti-ERA head of Eagle Forum, has urged 40,000 Forum members to pressure these magazines into canceling or modifying plans. NOW is the time to write to one or more of the magazines and enthusiastically approve their ERA support. WOMEN'S DAY, 1515: Broadway (10019); FAMILY CIRCLE, 488 Madison (10019); G00DH0USEKEEPING, 959 8th Ave. (10019); LADIES'HOME JOURNAL, 641 Lexington$0022); COSMOPOLITAN, 959 8th Ave. ('10019); MC CALL'S, 230 Park Ave. (1001?) 5 REDBOOK, 230 Park Ave. (10017); MADEMOISELLE, 420 Lexington (10017); GLAMOUR, 350 Madison (10017); COED, Scholastic Magazine, 50 West 44th St.(l0036); SEVENTEEN, 850 3rd Ave. (10022) These three steps can be taken by any person who believes in the basic guarantee of individual equality. Playing the game of "catch-up" next year will be futile — NOW is the time to act! An article titled "How Would ERA Affect Your Life?" written by Bess Myerson is printed in Redbook Magazine, April, 1976, and subheaded "Does the Equal Rights Amendment mean mixed rest rooms? Being drafted into the Army? Loss of Social Security benefits or alimony? An outspoken defender of human rights gives straight answers to the questions that have grown out of the emotional battle over ERA." Texans for ERA believe the article to be a reading "must" for all those for and against ERA. As a service to its readers, Redbook has reprinted the article, and for 35 cents in coin (no stamps) and a stamped, business-size, self-addressed envelope to Department B-101, Redbook Magazine, 230 Park Ave., New York, N.Y. 100171 you may have one to pass around to those friends (and enemies) who need it.
