Transcript WIRES: The Woman Connection Is there not a prevailing commitment within our women's community to exchange of information, resources and ideals? I believe that the number available for feminist involvement in Houston far surpasses those offered cities. There are so many women's groups in Houston with varying focuses little political diversities that a Women's Information and Referral Exchange Service is what I believe to be the next viable step in the evolution of this feminist community. the of avenues in many other and yet The resources available have increased to a point requiring an information center be established. We need to begin sharing, through a centralized office, information that could be relevant to our sister's growth. We've all gone through different processes to attain some woman's-oriented woman's consciousness. For some, it was through sports; some associated with campus groups; and others have been involved with professional and church related groups. During our first exposures to women-oriented groups, I'm sure we all appreciated the fact that the contact was available to us. It is with this realization that we must also recognize the needs of other women and the tremendous resources that we have within our own community. It will only be with the acknowledgement and implementation of such a center that a network of practical feminism will be successful and effective. Women In Action has identified this referral service for women" and has there such a service would be "to develop an in changing needs of all women, regardless o to serve as a clearing house for referral women, including . . . health services, c welfare agencies, women's organizations . skills, and information necessary to deve Action has already acknowledged the fact Referral Service (WIRES) will before long Women's Center. need for a "centralized information and fore sponsored the endeavor.

Until that point, however, we are trying to expand our files, train women to staff the service, research questions if unanswered, etc. Therefore we have the WIRES line staffed for the remaining period of time as a beginning effort to get these channels functioning in full capacity by April. At this point I'd like to ask anyone who wishes to help us to contact Pam or Beth at 527-0718, which is the Women In Action telephone number. Five training sessions have been organized for the month of March. Please contact us if interested. -Kristin *
