Transcript LETTER FROM MEMBER!!!!!! There was an editorial in the last newsletter that shook 3 some of us up by stating that Bay Area NOW was in danger of disbanding. Many of us attended the July 7 meeting to do our best to save the Chapter. But apparently even more of us were not "shook up'1 enough, or didnft care enough to come and help with our evaluating and re-directing process. Bay Area NOW is still in danger! I became even more conscious of some of our problems at the July meeting, one of which I wish to address in this editorial. Unfortunately, NOW has a nation wide reputation as a predominantly white, middle and, upper middle class, organization of women. While there are members who are minority or working class women (and some members who are not women at all!!! i.e. men), it is difficult to break down the stereotype by observing the attendance at our meetings. Where are the minority women from the Bay Area? Where are the working class women, the vast majority of women in the Bay Area? Where are the men who profess to be feminist? In fact, where are the majority of ALL Bay Area feminist—Ifm talking about those who live outside of Clear Lake City? I see the greatest danger to Bay Area NOW as the narrowing of organizational focus to those issues primarily of interest to the white, upper middle class, Clear Lake City women. THIS IS NOT THEIR FAULT!!! it is OUR (the unrepresented groups) responsibility to attend meetings so that those issues important to us are heard. It is OUR responsibility to break down the stereotype. I challange all Bay Area NOW members and feminist non- members to attend the next two in the series of three evalua-- tion meetings. We accomplished a lot without you at the first, but we are NOT out of danger yet. Ifm not sure we will get out of danger without your help. Remember, if the issues important to you are not addressed by Bay Area NOW, it is because you were not present to address them. Be there on August 4 and September 8, 7:30 PM, A Uniting Church, Clear Lake City, or remain unrepresented, unheard, and un-considered in the focus of Bay Area NOW. Donna Berend MINUTES; BAY AREA NOW BUSINESS MEETING...JULY 20, 1983 The business meeting was called to order at 7:30 PM, at a Uniting Church, by president, Judy Snyder. There were eleven members present.
