Transcript UNIVERSITY OF HOUSTON The Dailu Cougar TON. HOUSTON, TEXAS WmJ VOL. 44, NO. 20 %mJf MONDAY MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 24 ERA supporters publicize boycott Members of tne National Organization for Women publicized their boycott of states which have not yet ratified the Equal Photos by 8ETSY BRILL Rights Amendment. Below, NOW member and UH student Renee Rabb sits beside one of the NOW signs. Demonstrators picket Louisiana state line By BETSEY BRILL Staff Writer for The Coagv Green-clad women, men and children lined both sides of lnerstate 10 into Louisiana Saturday to publicize the economic boycott of states that have not ratified the Equal Rights Amendment. The crowd of approximately 50 National Orgaizations for Women members and other ERA supporters was one of three Texas NOW groups picketing the borders of ouisiana, Oklahoma and Arkansas; which are Texas' unratified neighbors. Lines of people holding large fabric "living billboards" waved at oncoming traffic and pointed to their signs, spaced about 50 feet apart and bearing parts of the message in sequence. Motorists leaving Texas saw "Entering Louisiana-Sadly We Regret-Women There-Do Not Have-Equal Rights Yet-Don't Spend in Louisiana-Until ERA Is Ratified There," The signs leaving Louisiana read, "Welcome to Texas-Isn't It Great?-That Now You Are In-An Equal Rights State-Spend In Texas-Ratified ERA 1972." The demonstrators remained on the sides of the highway and mad no effort to stop or interfere with the traffic. Drivers' reactions rangd from tooting horns and enthusiastic waves to an occasional thumbs down or obscene gesture. "We've had very enthusiastic response," said Rema Lou Brown of the Bay Area NOW Chapter. "We've only had a couple of negative reactions— they were men. One felt so strongly he pulled to the side an spat on the ground. We figure his mother must not have loved him," Brown said. Bay Area NOW's Sonia Doty was one gey-haired demonstraor who waved and "tried to establish personal contact" with people entering Louisiana. 'I'd like for my granddaughter not to have to fight the discrimination my generation has," said Doty, one of the oldest demonstrators and equal righu veteran. Doty's mother was one of the origina! suftragetes who worked for parage of the 19th Amendment. 5he has continued the family tradition in campaigning for the ERA in Illinois, Austin and Washington, D.C. She marched in the Capitol last summer with her daughter and granddaughter, she said. Jeanne Saletan, assistant coordinator for the project, pointed out that the participants were primarily Texas NOW members. "This is a trial effort," she said. "We wanted to make sure it was done without ncident and this way we can have more control." She said that she expected to see more demonstrations of this type in the next year, perhaps incorporating the support of other women's groups and orgaiztions that support the ERA. "We purposely chose an economic boycott," she said, "because the passage of the ERA is an economic issue. It affects salaries, their Social Security benefits, property rights of married women, inheritace taxes on survivng spouses and employment opporunities. If the unratified states don't see the fairnss of the ERA, we think it's only fair to spend our money elsewhere." 10 Yi
