Transcript Page 2 BROADSIDE/HERIZONS April, 1981 ************* WOMEN'S LOBBY '8l ALLIANCE WORKSHOP ********** The Women's Lobby '81 workshop was held on February 21st at the Easter Seal Society and was extremely successful. Jeanne Saletan made a very warm and insightful welcome to the group with a keynote address from Representative Ernestine Gloss- brenner following. Rep. Glossbrenner stressed that we need to make our voices heard, and that "until we are all free, none of us is free." Attendents broke up into various workshops with a lunch break afterwards. Jody Richardson, Attorney and former lobbyist for TWPC, gave an excellent speech on how to be an effective lobbyist.

There were 23 people from the Houston area on the bus, and over 30 people to testify against the bills at the hearing, (there were approximately 7 proponents for the bills) Both bills were referred to subcommittee, which we all felt was due to the tremendous showing of opposition, and to the (see pg. 4)
