Transcript Texas NOW State Convention, 1984 One of the best conventions in Texas NOW history was held Sept. 14 - 16, at the Sheraton Crown Hotel, here in Houston. Sponsored by the members of North-East Houston NOW, participants spent all their waking hours in great fun, learning experiences, and a lesson in feminism and sisterhood. Workshops ranged from sexual harassment to lesbian rights; from membership recruitment to "Bridging the Gulf, Binding the Wounds Between Women working outside the Home and women working Inside the home"; from combating racism to pornography, and so many more learning topics. An auction was held on Saturday night to raise funds for Texas NOW-PAC. With donated items from such people as Joanne Woodward and Paul Newman, Gloria Steinem, Jean Stapleton, Phil Donahue, etc., the PAC was able to raise over $1400.00. For those who missed the auction MC'd by Sue Devaney with hilarious assistance from Debbie Tate, you missed a great show. Judy Eron from Nashville brought us good music and good feelings about our selves and each other. The convention was honored to have as our guests Kathy Webb, Secretary of National NOW, Jane Wells-Schooley, former National NOW VP-Action and candidate for Congress in Pennsylvania 15th district, Ann Richards, Texas State Treasurer and Sandra Gillis, the first National Lesbian-Gay Liason for the Walter Mondale- Geraldine Ferraro candidacy. The by-laws change sponsored by Bay Area NOW was narrowly defeated by three votes. Maybe next year. The convention passed resolutions calling for a State day of education on the issue of Sexual Harassment. This will be on July 2, 1985. The convene tion passed a resolution creating a Texas Legal and Defense Fund. Also, a resolution asking that all staff jobs in the National NOW Tims use standard affirmative action. The Lesbian Rights Resolution which passed is printed under that topic. Members attending from Bay Area were Donna Berend, Judy Snyder, Pat Kuhlmann, Judi Hoffman, Gwen Topper, Susi Topper, Ellie Castillo. Hedy Salazar, Rema Lou Brown, Anita Marcus,- Phyllis Tucker and a very special guest John Topper. Member Marilyn Mieszkuc was not only there as a Bay Area NOW member, but as a candidate for office. How proud we all were, of the marvelous speech that Marilyn made to the body of the convention. Congratulations from all Bay Area NOW members to Patricia Todd Kuhlmann on her election as Area III Membership chair. To NorthEast Houston NOW...Congratulations on a job well done.
