Transcript 2. WOMEN'S WEEK II Coming Soon at UH/CLC The University of Houston at Clear lake will host its second annual Women's Week from January 30th through February 3rd. The week will be highlighted by the appearance and lecture of Betty Friedan on Friday evening, February 3rd at 8 p.m. in the UH/CLC auditorium. Concerns to be addressed in this week include "As Others See Us", "Lifestyles", "Women and the Law", and "Women and Work". Book discussions, film presentations, panel discussions and lectures are scheduled for public participation. Final schedules detailing the week's activities will be available early in January. (See tentative schedule p. 3 ) WOMEN'S WEEK II is coordinated by the Women's Resource Service at UH/CLC, with Betty Friedan's lecture sponsored by the UH/CLC Cultural Committee. For information about the week and its activities, contact Women's Resource Services at 488-9216. For lecture tickets, call the Information Desk, 488-9288. Good Words For Last Month's Contributors Thank you to all who so openly shared their impressions of the IWY Conference in the NOW News. Your spirit is contagious. As proof, I have tear-stained cheeks, an empty Kleenex box and a joyful heart - and I didn't even attend the conference. Since I barely have time to read Doonesbury, much less the newspaper or feminist literature, I appreciate reading the clippings and comments in the monthly newsletter. The messages are moving. Thank you. —Nellie Wegmann Equal Opportunity Anyone?? Where was it when the Johnson Space Center recently filled the vacancy of the position of Federal Women's Program Coordinator (FWPC) by lateral assignment, rather than by opening the vacancy to Center-wide (at the very least) competition under regular Civil Service Merit Promotion procedures? On behalf of Bay Area NOW, that is the question that Twiss Butler has been asking Dr. Robert A. Frosch, NASA administrator, Dr. Harriett Jenkins, Chief of NASA's Equal Opportunity Office, and Senator William Proxmire, chair of the Senate appropriations subcommittee which deals with NASA's budget. Prompted by a resultant Proxmire inquiry, it appears that there's now an active search going on at JSC for its misplaced Equal Opportunity Objectives. To aid the effort, Marjorie Randal and Rema Lou Brown have called for the assistance of Eleanore Holmes Norton, Chair of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. It is thought that a November memo from President Carter to all agency and department heads to move more decisively toward equality of opportunity for women in government service may also help to nudge the recollection and guide the judgment of those at JSC who are to be held responsible for the FWPC appointment. A report on the outcome will be supplied when it is available. BREAKTHROUGH Calendar Receipts Support Women's Media Projects "Woman: Inner Reflection" is a beautiful 1978 weekly calendar containing over fifty photographs from the portfolios of Texas artists. Profits from the sale of the calendar go to the newly formed Breakthrough Foundation the purpose of which is to provide scholarships, grants, and other types of support for women in media. A second Breakthrough Foundation support project is the sale of sets of the three special issues of Breakthrough published for daily distribution at the IWY Conference. These newspapers will be of special interest to libraries, women's study programs, and virtually anyone with a sense of history. To obtain calendar ($6.95 . 35c tx) or newspapers ($3), call Breakthrough (526-0254) or Evie Whitsett (488-1777). Bookstores and mail-order (Box 88072, Houston 77004) are other sources.
