Transcript SEARS ACTION SUB-COMMITTEE Last month, NOW's National Conference overwhelmingly passed a resolution condemning the discriminatory practices of Sears, Roebuck & Co., the world's largest retailer, and calling for local and national action to bring them into compliance. Although Sears claims to have a model affirmative action plan, their record in promotions, equal pay, benefits and hiring is amount the worst. They have filed suit to prevent disclosure of their affirmative action plan to groups like NOW, claiming that disclosure would subject them to "unwarranted civil rights litigation". Sears is working hard to protect its public image (short of cleaning up its employment practices), and clearly fears action by NOW. Sears sent a delegation (many of the from Sears' equal opportunity departments), all expenses paid, to our National Conference. This delegation took every opportunity to fight NOW's goal of equal employment opportunity. Beginning the day after the Conference, Sears renewed efforts to bolster its image and hide its practices by contacting NOW chapters and member with offers of meetings and credit cards, but so far, no offers of afffirmative action plans. Sears is also attempting to buy memberships - both the New York and Atlanta chapters have received memberships on Sears corporate checks! NOW has a long-standing policy stating that membership is open to individuals only - not institutions or organizations. Treasurers and membership officers need to be alert and to return any checks received. To help in the Sears campaign, record the names of individuals who attempt to join with Sears fund and any other contacts that members have with the Sears "public image" team. To appoint a member of your Chapter to the Sears Action Sub-committee, send her/his name and address on Chapter stationery signed by a chapter officer to the Sub-committee. This will help us insure that our mailing listing is limited to NOW members working on the program. Please forward the information and contacts to: Sears Action Sub-committee - Compliance Task Force NOW 53 V/est Jackson, Suite 343 Chicago, 111!noi s 60604 KPRC-TV SIGNS MEMORANDUM OF AGREEMENT Back in February numbers of us were involved in monitoring Channel 2, KPRC-TV. This action came about because of the stations attitudes toward equal employement and their "affirmative action plan". On June 24, 1974, our labors bore fruit. A quite comprehensive memorandum was signed by the station. It includes the establishment of a Women's Advisory Council, provisions for increasing attention to the problems of women, programming aimed at areas of importance to women, review of offensive commercials by the station and the Advisory Council and the agreement to make more positive steps in their Affirmative Action Plan. The entire agreement verbatim is printed in this month's issue of Broads ide. TEXT BOOK REVIEW Text book reviewing is now is full swing. We are finding the books incredibly sexist, and therefore, need everyone's help to thoroughly review as many titles as possible. There is a special need for anyone who can read Spanish. The slide-tape show has been rented by San Antonio, Dallas, and Austin and shown at Houston, Northwest and Bay Area Chapter meetings. Post cards have been sent to the 14 state chapters participating in reviewing, seeking a progress report. Between August 1 and 7 we wi11 be assembling these Bill of Particulars (reviews) and attempting to review ail those not yet reviewed. Try to keep those days open if possible. Call Mary Buxton, 333"3872 or Marg Randal, 488-4396 for books to review,
