Sexual Harassment according to Sec. 703 of Title VII is "Unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature constitute sexual harassment. " When we took the information to the Texas State Council of Jan. 14-15f we were really overwhelmed. We heard horror stories from Longview to Corpus, and from Lubbock to Houston. I for one, was astounded. The work of this committee is really set up. It appears that is is up to us to assist and educate those persons who are victims of this type of discrimination. Someone has to do it and it looks like it will be the primary work of Bay Area NOW. The following motion was presented to the Texas NOW State Council: Whereas, sexual harassment on the job is a form of discrimination that affects all working persons directly or indirectly, and Whereas, the Federal Government under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 states that... "employer's cannot discriminate on the basis of sex, and...requests for sexual favors and other verbal or phusical conduct of a sexual nature are considered harassment".., and Whereas, the psychological and emotional damage is similar to those persons involved in rape, battering and/or child abuse, and Whereas, the Reagan administration has reduced the budget of the E.E.O.C.; has transformed the Civil Rights Commission into a group of persons that desire to eliminate affirmative action; has by these and other actions demonstrates a tot&l disregard for the advancement of women in the work force; Therefore, be it resolved that, Texas NOW create a task force to educate, assist, and prepare legislation on the issue of sexual harassment/discrimination in jobs and education. This passed overwhelming and Fran Tooley of Lubbock financed out- start at the state level with a $100.00 donation. We have started something that will keep all of us busy. Join us!!!
