Transcript STATE NOW CONFERENCE Frances Hicks, Nora Mertz, Dorothy Pearson, Marge Randal, Jeanne Salatan, Betty Yancey, and BANOW Booster Jerry Yancey all attended the state NOW conference May 29-30 in Abilene. Officers elected were: Barbara Duke, of Austin, State Coordinator; our own Frances Hicks, Membership Coordinator of the southeast Texas chapters; Tommie Brandt, Beaumont, State Communications Coordinator,* and Terry Chandler, Dallas, State Treasurer. The speakers, Sarah Weddington and Martha Gaines, among others, were excellent, the workshops first-rate. Marge Randal coordinated the textbook workshop, which drew a larger attendance than any others. Several people made tapes of the various parts of the conference. If you're interested in borrowing cassettes of workshops on Women & Health, Title IX, and Chapter Growth & Development, call Betty Yancey, 53^-62^4, Dickinson. Some of the quality is poor, but the content is worth hurting your ears for. From the Women & Health: we need to have a state task force on Women & Health, and plans are being made for such to consider ways of sharing information concerning health problems, issues and resources, to cooperate with other women's organizations in organizing a state conference on women's health, and to develop health education workshops to consider personal and community health problems of concern to women. Materials obtained include an annotated bibliography and a bibliography of health education materials. From Chapter Growth: Lubbock pairs a visitor with someone with similar interests who will be responsible for making the visitor welcome (followed by lunch date the next week). They then follow the program and break (for coffee, buying things, and joining) with an "Exciting Action" period, during which all upcoming actions are announced (nothing depressing at all discussed here). A "Business Action" meeting takes place the following week, and a different person is asked to take minutes, etc. each time, so that new people are drawn into chapter activities. This meeting is held in someone's home so that all members get to know husbands, children, etc. of their feminist friends. Would this be worth trying in Bay Area? From Title IX: Carol Holgren, EEOC Investigator for the Elementary and Secondary Education Branch of the Office of Civil Rights, Dallas, told us: "Hair has caused more complaints than anything else. The men who come under Title IX have responded to Title IX, have sent in more complaints and had more action taken on their complaints than women have." Unless we get busy and insist that school boards carry out the law in our own schools, and back up that insistence with action through Carol's office, females will be in the same place in 1986 as they are in 1976. JIMMY CARTER UPDATE This past week Jimmy Carter, leading Democratic candidate for President, and Robert Strauss, Chair of the National Democratic Party, failed to endorse proposed changes to the Democratic Party Rules which would call for 50% representation of women in all delegations to the national convention. In their opinion, this should be left up to the discretion of each state. They claim to oppose a quota system in matters of sex but favor it in instances of minority representation. This is just another example of the more-than-51% of the citizens of this country having to fight the battle for equal representation in this year of our bicentennial. If this concerns you, write or wire: (l) Democratic National Committee (2) Campaign for Election of Jimmy Carter c/o Robert Strauss 1795 Peachtree Rd. N.E. 1625 Massachusetts Ave., N.W.
