Transcript September 1972 BROADSIDE Page 3 TASK FORCE ACTIVITIES POLITICS & LOBBYING This task force is involved in expanding NOW's political influence through contacts on a precinct- and legislative-district level, contacting other women's groups, and keeping NOW membership informed on key political bills involving women's status. Files will be kept on all local legislators and this task force will keep them informed of NOW's position with respect to the Equal Rights Amendment and other bills important to women. FUND RAISING The Fund Raising task force is in the process of obtaining guest speakers from the National Women's Political Caucus for a New Feminist Workshop. The task force also has planned a Feminist Film Festival comprised of 8 predominantly foreign films depicting women in a variety of life settings and situations. REPRODUCTION & ITS CONTROL Through the efforts of this task force, the Voice of Hope, a weekly Houston newspaper has begun a series of 12 articles dealing with areas of medical concern to women. A survey is being planned to deal with available resources for birth control and abortion in the Houston area. Using this information, the Reproduction task force hopes to provide a re- feral service for interested persons in the Houston area. CREDIT The Credit task force is currently concentrating its efforts on local department stores. The task force is developing a questionnaire for credit managers to obtain information on store policy. The questionnaire will be used to acquaint stores with NOW's viewpoint PUBLICATIONS This is a relatively new task force that was formerly combined with the Broadside task force. Geny McConnell, coordinator, is actively seeking NOW members who have art or publishing experience to develop brochures, pamphlets, and other NOW publications. EDUCATION/WOMEN IN POVERTY The Education task force invites all members of NOW to work for change in our educational systems. The task force is especially interested in members who have direct involvement in education. This task force works closely with the Women in Poverty task force. Ms. Lunie Grace, Director of the Welfare Rights Organization in Houston, will be guest speaker at the September 12 meeting. The Education task force hopes to aid disadvantaged women in obtaining their high school equivalency diploma. If there is enough interest a separate task force on Women in Higher Education will be formed. This group will deal with discrimination in admissions and treatment of female faculty members as well as with sexism in the education programs. Woman's Work It's not my place to run the train. The whistle I can't blow. It's not my place to say how far The train's allowed to go. It's not my place to shoot off steam Nor even clang the bell. But let the damn thing jump the track And see who catches hell. Author Unknown Program To Feature Day Care Expert "Windows on Day Care", the report on a two-year study on day care in the United States is the basis for the September business meeting program. The study was sponsored by the National Council of Jewish Women. Lorraine Goldstaub, a professional social work consultant with the Family Service Center, was active in the study as the Houston representative. Ms. Goldstaub will speak at the business meeting September 6. Not only will she present information from the study but also facts on the current status of day care in Houston. Ms. Goldstaub is acting chairone of the Citizens Committee for Quality Day Care. This Houston organization is interested in seeking NOW's participation to work in all aspects of child care in Houston.
