TWPC FETE HONORS NEW LEGISLATORS On Sunday, January 14, the Texas Women's Political Caucus held a champagne reception for freshman legislators just beginning their work in the state legislature. Held at the Austin Women's Center, 1208 Baylor, the reception was attended by more than three hundred men and women from all over the state. Cathy Bonner, director of the TWPC office in Austin, must be commended for organizing this function and coordinating all the details that made it such a success. Following is a partial listing of those who attended: Kay Bailey, Democrat from Harris County; Sarah Weddington, Democrat from Travis County, who took the Texas abortion laws to the U.S. Supreme Court; Chris Miller, Democrat from Fort Worth, one of the founders of the TWPC; Betty Andujar, Republican, and the only female member of the Texas Senate; Bob Armstrong, Texas Land Commissioner; Price Daniels, Jr., Speaker of the House; Fred Head, who defeated Rayford Price of Palestine; Ben Bynum; Hawkins Memefee, a legislator whose election was endorsed by the Harris County caucus; Lorey Gallop, president of the Dallas County caucus and candidate for the city council of Irving; Jane Blumberg, member of the Democratic National Committee, and her colleague Billie Carr from Houston; Julianna Cowden, Secretary of the Texas Democratic Party; Margaret Carter, Juanita Campbell and Ann Lower, members of the State Democratic Executive Committee. Next month, Emily Joyce Howell, 33, of Denver will begin work as the nation's first and only woman pilot of a major scheduled airline. With the rank of second officer for Denver's Frontier Airlines, she will fly Boeing 737's. LEGISLATIVE NEWSLETTER Cathy Bonner, director of the TWPC office in Austin, is going to be putting out a monthly newsletter covering current activities in the Texas legislature. To subscribe, send a check for $2 (made payable to the Texas Women's Political Caucus) to her attention at the Women's Center, 1208 Baylor, Austin 78703. Cathy is running the first feminist lobby office in Texas and part of her success will depend on the financial support of the newsletter service. Should you want to talk with her, the telephone number at the Women's Center is 215-474-1789. PROGRAM TO ADD MORE CR GROUPS For the past several months Houston NOW members Dr. Marlyne Kilbey and Helen Copitka have held continuing encounter groups for approximately 20 NOW members. These groups have proved successful and plans are now being formulated to expand the groups. An organizational meeting will be held 8:00 p.m., Wednesday, February 21 at the Women's Center. As a result of the original groups, there are now ten women who are qualified and have agreed to form additional groups of not more than eight each. Each group will function individually, arranging meeting times and places to suit the group. Anyone interested in joining these consciousness raising groups should make every effort to attend this meeting. HERE IS YOUR CHANCE TO COMPLAIN Have you seen any advertisements lately that were offensive to women (have you seen any that weren't)? Have you had difficulties obtaining credit because of your sex? Do you resent the way some "humourous" women's stories are handled by the news media? Now is your chance to gripe. On February 28 the Women's Center will host a "gritch" session. Bring your stationary and your favorite gripe. This will be the first session in a continuing series to encourage organized complaining. If you seem somehow never to get around to writing that angry letter, this will solve your problem, and possibly help to gain additional support for your complaint. Meeting time is 8:00 p.m.
