Transcript REPORT..."Lesbian Rights Conference: Power & Politics in '84" On Jan. 20, 1984, the Rational Organization for Women neld it's first conference on Lesbian Rights in Milwaukee, Wis. This has been a conference that a lot of us have looked forward to for a long time. From the time we arrived until the time we left it was the greatest feeling of energy and sisterhood that this person has ever had at a conference. Old wounds and old grudges were buried for the one common goal...the Rational Organization for Women. The feeling of warmth and cooperation was well worth the price of the hotel and the plane fare. The meeting was well attended with over three hundred members from all over the country. Bay Area NOW was represented by Bonnie Huval, Colette Roberts, Judi Hoffman and Phyllis Tucker. Texas ROW was represented by nine menbers and gained recognition (?) as the "raucous caucus". The workshops that were conducted were each and every one the best learning experience in the world. From "Why are lesbian rights a ROW issue?" to "Minority Rights and Lesbian Rights" each and every question or concern that anyone has had on the issue of Lesbian Rights was covered and covered extremely well. When someone asks you..."Why does ROW support Lesbian/Gay rights?"...then I would remind you to tell them about the women in the military. Women who are thrown out from their chosen profession because they are thought to possibly have lesbian tendencies. Remind them of mothers who are accused of homosexuality and lose their children. Remind them of teachers, nurses, truck drivers, sales clerks, etc. who are fired because of their sexual orientation. Remind them of their sisters who are denied the right to be with theiriloved one during hospital stays because they are not blood kin or spouse (in the eyes of the law). Remind them of the women or man who has spent thirty or forty years living and caring and loving each other who lose everything when one of the partners die because. legally everything goes to the next of kin. (Same sex partners are not considered next of kin). All of these issues were covered and many more. All of us regretted having to leave, even though the weather was -24. To Milwaukee NOW, Wisconsin ROW and the Rational ROW Lesbian Rights Committee...A Job well done!!!!!!! On Feb. 15, at 7:30 pm, the Rice Media Center will show a new docu-drama entitled "Rape-Crisis". The film is 90 minutes in length and a fee of $3.00 will be charged. The Rice Media Center is located at entrance 7 on University Blvd. @ Stockton.
