Transcript WE'LL REMEMBER IN NOVEMBER! 1HEY WERE THERE FOR WOHENS RIGHTS During the Republican platform hearings, on a hot July 9th, over 100 Houston women and men came out to demonstrate their ERA commitment in front of Republican Headquarters on Westheimer at Kirby. Organized by the Bay Area NOW and Houston Area NOW Action Teams for ERA, the event showed how well we work together even on a short notice of 5 days. We contacted as many organizations as possible and people came from AAUW, LULAC, Houston Area Women's Center, Common Cause, ACLU, YWCA, -FEW^ and Anderson headquarters. The advance press releases got us live coverage from Channel 2 and taped TV coverage on Channel 13- Radio KTRH carried announcements all day and helped turn out demonstrators. During the rush hour motorists responded to HONK FOR ERA signs and created a din which lifted our hearts. Women are cautioned not to accept Reagan's ploy that he is for equal rights but not for the Equal Rights Amendment! Women should accept no excuses, no piecemeal priveleges, no substitutes for the genuine ERA. Then on Saturday, July 19, on 24 hour notice, 35 ERA supporters turned out to greet Ronald Reagan and George Bush (Bush has "mush appeal") at the Galleria, their first stop after the Republican convention.. We distributed literature and a flyer called ERA IS ALIVE AND WELL IN HOUSTON alerting people to an ongoing effort between now and Election Day, November 4th. Gail Padgett, Houston NOW,appeared in the Post next day carrying our sign WOKEN UNITED FOR ERA. We will continue to shadow the candidates and be an ERA presence at every appearance. We are now engaged in a coalition effort starting with the YWCA and reaching out to every organization in Houston area which can join us for a culminating event for ERA before November 4th. We need planners, speakers, demonstrators, detail workers. Pat Kuhlmann is thinking about a dramatic presentation using the words of our women heroes. Bay Area NOV/ members and their families and friends were on the line when we needed them making original signs, singing, chanting, holding up the banners, distributing ERA information, answering questions from the public, sweating it out cheerfully in the heat and crowds, giving on the spot interviews to reporters, writing letters to the newspapers, building a stronger women's movement in our part of the country. Pam Rossman and Roy Simmons* Lynn McGregor, John Erickson, Karen Erickson, Twiss Butler and daughters Mavis, Ellen and Brigid, Phyllis Tucker, Judy Hoffman, Ruth Townsend and daughter Barbara Goad and grand-daughter Kassie Goad, Jeanne Saletan and David,Louie and Rebecca Saletan, Martha Tijerina, Cathy Emrick, Bobbie and Jan McCullough, Evie Whitsett,Rema Lou Brown, Pat Kuhlmann, Gail Anderson, Melissa Weiksnar, Mary and Penny McFaddin. Call me if I have overlooked you. I want to print your name. Jeanne Saletan 471-2862 REAGAN THE CHARMER After it was all over, the platform decision that reneged on ERA, Reagan granted an audience to women like Nancy Kassebaum, Mary LouiseSmith and Betty Heitman. MEN WERE EXCLUDED, even men like Charles Leopold who had argued hard for ERA. The women came out smiling and satisfied according to their reports. What magic did HE work? Some Republican women are agonizing like Mary Crisp who deserves our support. Look to sign our letter at August meeting. NEW ACTIVISM Since July 9th, women are calling me about ERA and reproductive choice • women who have never joined a womens rights group or been active before. How we welcome them and are ready to put their anger to good use! Out in right field, I no longer hesitate to lay the guilt on women who tell me they will vote Reagan "How can you vote to negate everything that we have worked for and you have benefited from?" INSIST ON THE GENUINE ERA, ACCEPT NO SUBSTITUTE!
