Transcript Page 4 BROADSIDE September 1 972 NOW INITIATES FOUR-PART ORIENTATION PROGRAM On Monday, September 11, the Membership and Orientation task force will begin a four-part monthly orientation program. The purpose of the sessions is to better inform new people of the many facets of the Women's Movement and to more quickly assimilate them into NOW's activities. Most people come to NOW because of one or two issues and are lost in much of the discussion that older members take for granted. The programs will cover everything from HERstory and Houston NOW to issues, attitudes and laws. Each session will be conducted by a long time NOW member. There will be a lot of information so attendees should be prepared to jot down notes. At 8:00 pm on the Monday following the monthly business session, Betty Barnes will present a program on the HERstory of the Women's Movement and of NOW. In addition this session will be designed to acquaint new persons with Houston NOW. The task forces and regular meetings will be discussed thoroughly. On the following Monday, Poppy Northcutt, member of the National Board, will discuss the current status of women and of the Women's Movement. Data about laws, protective agencies and discrimination guidelines will be presented. Poppy will also provide information on the status of women in the United States today; statistics a- bout attitudes, employment, etc. as well as facts about discrimination. This session is a must for anyone needing facts and figures to persuade others to NOW's cause. On September 28, Helen Cassidy will conduct the first session on the psychology of the Women's Movement. How and why the feminist view of women is different from traditional ideas and ways to change the attitudes of others will be the main themes of this program. This conciousness raising is an important meeting for new members. It will provide an opportunity for discussing NOW's policies and attitudes on all issues. The fourth session will allow the individuals to express their own problems and hostilities. Dr. Marlyne Kilbey, who is teaching a course entitled "The Psychology of Women" at the University of Houston, will conduct the group. Individuals will be encouraged to analyze and explain how they have been molded or treated by society because of their sex. This meeting is the time for open discussion of personal or general hostilities. The sessions will be held on Monday evenings at the times and places listed on the calendar. Geny McConnell is the co-ordinator of this effort and of the task force. In order to evaluate the effectiveness of the program, the task force requests the following: (1) only persons relatively new to NOW come to the September sessions, (2) individuals try to attend all four meetings, and (3) candid evaluations of the programs be made. Hopefully this orientation plan will be the solution to the problem of assimilating the many new people who are coming to NOW every month. Eventually the task force plans to open the sessions to veteran NOW members. ERA BUMPER STICKERS amendment YES EQUAL 7 RIGHTS NOV. 7 As part of a campaign to familiarize all Texas voters with the Equal Legal Rights Amendment, the Harris County Women's Political Caucus is selling the above bumper sticker for 25 cents. Do your part to insure passage of the amendment in November. MEETING FORMAT The first Wednesday is now the only time the entire membership meets. Persons are encouraged to linger after the program to meet new people and to rap. The officers and task force coordinators can be contacted at this time. The treasurer and funding committee will have NOW'S "store" open for the sale of bumper stickers, etc. Because the business meeting is also the program meeting, efficient handling of business is important. Those members wishing to make announcements should try to notify the chair before the meeting begins NOW JOB BUREAU Houston NOW, through its EEO task force, has formed a job bureau to refer qualified women to area employers.
