Transcript NATIONAL WOMEN'S CONFERENCE - continued Next Bella introduces "the Plan." Women on the Move. Liz Carpenter recounts Faces and Voices of women past, women present who shape our history. "Write Herstory, History doesn't mention us." Now is the time for the most dynamic woman of all - Barbara Jordan. She began, with unforgettable humor, "Thank you, Lady Bird, for your fine introduction, of which I am most worthy!" Then: "None of the goals stated in this conference are incompatible with the goals of America. "(They) sound like the stanzas to America the Beautiful, (and) are as logical and reasonable to me as the goals .President Carter talks about, of human rights in America's foreign policy." I felt she extended to each of us a better comprehension of our own individuality as she asked: "What will you sow?" "What will you reap?" Over the thunderous ovation, I hear, "Jordan for President ". 2:30 P.m.: Registered and credentialed, 1986 voting delegates move to the business of the day. Delegates-at-large question the seating of the Mississippi delegation. Ruled out of order. 3:30 p.m.: The Conference begins on the Plan of Action: 26 resolutions ranging in subject from Arts and Humanities to Welfare Reform. When E.R.A. passes by a 70/30 margin, my confidence soars. We're breaking the backs of the opposition! From here on out, it feels almost anti-climactic. True, the minority resolution is a possible controversy, The Minority Caucus is pushing a substitute. We agree to support it 100%. Hawaii abstains? The substitue passes with a tremendous rally: Reproductive freedom, the real problem for many pro-plan delegates, passes. The right-to-1ifers rally and yell "Foul". The last really difficult issue, sexual preference, proves our excellence at managing the floor. The chair has to call for "con" speakers. "Pro" speakers yield the floor mike in ar act of fairness. The call for the question. The vote. We win! Late, late Sunday. Only number 26 hangs over until Monday. Our pro-plan caucus breaks down on Monday. We are not able to agree on the Commission's resolution nor on the half-dozen substitute resolutions. Eventually, we compromise on a plan that provides enabling action - to present the Plan of Action, as amended, to the President and Congress, and a call for another conference to evaluate the outcomes. We are truly women on the move. BRYANT WINS GOOD-HOUSEKEEPING MAG POLL In a poll that was "checked and re-checked", Good Housekeeping Magazine found that Anita Bryant was named by their readers tne most admired woman in the world"! The outcome "surprised and dis- tressed, the editors.
