Barbara Jordan, Democrat of Houston. Many people remember her moving address to the 1976 Democratic national convention. Her speech to the IWY Conference was equally memorable. Here are excerpts: The success or failure of this conference is our responsibility and we should not waste one moment trying to find scapegoats. If this conference succeeds, there will be ample accolades for everybody, and if it fails, all of you may look into your mirror and identify a contributing culprit. None of the goals stated in this conference are incompatible with the goals of America. As a matter of fact, the goals of this conference sound like stanzas to America the Beautiful. You have several of the goals written in your programs-recognize the contribution of women to the development of our country, assess the progress which has been made to date by both the public and the private sectors in promoting equality between men and women in all aspects of life in America. As such, the role of women in religious, social, cultural and economic life—the goals are there. They are non-controversial. But, I would remind you that when those goals were written into the authorizing legislation for this conference, there were worlds of controversy A two-thirds majority vote in the House of Representatives was not possible, and so the legislation was approved by a simple majority. Those goals of this conference are as logical and reasonable to me as the goals President Carter talks about of human rights in America's foreign policy. If Americans were asked to differentiate or distinguish between what characterizes other countries and what characterizes us, we would say our high regard for the individual. That's the thing which makes us different. We endorse personal and political freedom as a national right of human pride. Human rights are more than abstractions, particularly when they are limited or non-existent. Human rights apply equally to Soviet dissidents, Chilean peasants and American women. Women are human. We know our rights are limited. We know our rights are violated. We need a domestic human rights program. This conference could be the beginning of such an effort, and an effort would be enhanced and we would not allow ourselves to be brainwashed by people who predict chaos for us and failure for us. Tell them they lie and move on. U -the goals cf this conterence sound like stanzas to America the Beautiful " It is implicit to you and me, implicit in that it is the recognition of a diverse opinion represented here. We must not impose on others what we would not have imposed on ourselves. This conference is inclusive; everybody is here and everyone must be free to define the meaning of 'total woman' for herself. The differences among us at this conference cannot and should not be ignored. They are rational; the difference is economic, cultural, social, political, ideological—the differences are there. The delegates to this conference are certainly not of a single mind. We should not be of a single mind. "Wonder Woman" is not a delegate. The "Bionic Woman" is not here either. American representatives are here to try to work through the problems of this conference. Of course we will debate, of course we will differ. We will plead and placate. Well, I have no doubt that legislation which emanates from this conference . . . will have a better chance of passage if support for that recommendation is widespread. We can't expect it all to be our way. At a time when this country is drifting, if it is not shifting, to the right, civil rights and affirmative action efforts are lagging. An intra-women's movement has no place. It must be displaced by interdependence and mutual respect. This is the time for footsoldiers, not Kamikaze pilots. One hundred days after we finish here, a report is to be submitted to each house ot the Congress. What will you have in it? A hundred and twenty days after that President Carter is to submit recommendations to each house of the Congress based on the report which emanates from this body. What will he recommend? Eight months from the time we leave here, something is supposed to happen. Recommendations will be submitted. Well, I have no doubt that legislation which emanates from this conference as to the sources, however embryotically, will have a better chance of passage if support for that recommendation is widespread. Not making a difference is a cost we cannot afford. Of course, the cause of equal and human rights will reap what is sown November 18 through November 21, 1977. What will you reap? What will you sow?
