Transcript Our members write: How can I, in the privacy of my own home, transform myself from a 98-pound weakling "womens lib" sympathizer to a strong, active Feminist without attending a single meeting? Well, sisters and brothers, it ain't easy. But, get out your Big Chief Tablet and your fat pencils and—here's the secret—write letters!! Yes, YOU can fight sexism in our world. Consult the following list of urgently needed lobby letters and start writing today! No salesperson will call. (Those of you who attend meetings and center sit: YOU TOO!) write on! A letter to an elected government official is a way to influence that official. Since we need all the influence we can muster, be sure to write Washington on the following issues: (1) The Supreme Court. Write President Gerald Ford (with a copy to Betty Ford), urging him to appoint a feminist to the Court. Also write Senators Lloyd Bentsen and John Tower, urging them to vote to confirm only a feminist for the Court. There are many feminists in the United States well qualified for the Supreme Court. One such person mentioned at a recent NOW meeting was legal scholar Ruth Bader Ginsburg. (2) HR 5452 - Bella Abzug's bill to prohibit discrimination on the grounds of sexual or affectional preference. Write your U.S. Representative as well as Senators Tower and Bentsen. Especially write to Tower. He has been sending a favorable response to such letters, including this sentence: "I have always been a supporter for equal opportunity and do not believe this right should be based on arbitrary distinctions such as sexual or affectional preference." However, he has not yet committed himself as to his support of the bill. Urge him to sponsor HR 5452 in the Senate. (3) HR 7003 - Displaced Homemakers Bill. This is a bill to provide training for women 35 to 65 years old. These are the years when a divorced or widowed homemaker has extreme difficulty in entering or returning to the job market. Letters are especially needed to Representative Augustus Hawkins encouraging him to hold hearings on the bill. He is the chair of the House EEO subcommittee and is preventing the bill from progressing. 12
