Transcript November, 197U Dear Sisters in Bay Area, I feel my month has been CONSUMED in EBA. matters. As was predicted at the NOT Regional Conference in October, Texas feminists are undergoing a real barrage from the shadowy H.O.W. (Happiness of Womanhood) and W.W.W.W. (Women Who Want to be Women) groups, well-funded in their quest to rescind the ERA ratification in Texas. The only right guaranteed to ffomen under the U.S. Constitution is the right to vote, painfully won after World War I. Courts have ruled on numerous occasions that women are not persons under the Constitution. If the Texas Legislature votes to rescind its ERA ratification of 1972, voting may well remain our only right. There is evidence that the main reason some groups are seeking reeision in Texas is in order to intimidate the Legislatures of Southern States which have yet to ratify. (Recission itself is thought to be impossible under the law.) We are all very busy with work, school, family duties, and other aspects of feminist action, but each one of us needs to make time to help in the anti-recission fight. I badly need your help in writing letters to your Legislators, in speaking to groups in favor of the ERA, and in writing occasional letters to newspaper editors explaining different facets of ERA. Please help N.O.W. Ne^xt year may be too lateii Frances BAY AREA ERA COALITION FORMING, N.O.W. Frances Hicks, Mary Buxton, Marjorie Randal, Rema Lou Brown, and Jonnelle Owen mat with Marilyn Mieszkuc and Margaret Kemp of the Bay Area League of Women Voters on Tuesday, Nov. 19, to plan a local campaign in favor of the ERA. It was decided to organize a Bay Area ERA Coalition, consisting of NOW, The local League, and Clear Lake City Branch of AAUW, with openings for other interested Organizations. Suggested activities were: 1. distributing a flyer on ERA in our area 2. speaking before as many groups as possible about the ERA 3. writing letters to our legislators, against recission. Margaret Kemp is in contact with a State ERA Coalition which includes the League, and will coordinate our strategy with theirs. She is also our local coordinator for speaking engagements and other activities. If you are interested in speaking engagements on this topic, please contact her at U88-0150. Call her also if you represent a group who want a speaker or want to join the coalition. A training session for speakers is planned for the second week in Decembek. Please write your State Legislator and Senator soon—several times in the next two months, if possible—urging them to support the ERA. A very short favorable statement is all that is necessaijy in a letter. STATE N.O.W. MEETING IN HUNTSVILLE, NOV. 2nd President Frances Hicks attended this meeting representing the Chapter. The morning session involved a discussion of State Organizational structure, a report from State Legislative Coordinator Suzanne de Satrustegui of San Antonio, and allocation of $50.00 to the Continuing Task Force on Education for Women. After lunch the State ERA recission fight was discussed, and plans were made for the State NCW Convention in Austin , which is scheduled for March 7*8, and 9 in the Shorecrest Hotel. National President Karen DeCrow will be present. For reservations contact Barbara Duke, 1907 David St., Austin, 78705. Next meeting of the State Council of Texas N.O.W, will be Jan. 11th, 1975, in the Women's Center in Austin."" COME TO OUR N.O.W. RAP SESSION Our monthly social encounter is scheduled for Dec. 9 at the home of Linda McCollum, 16019 Buccaneer, Clear Lake City. If you're new, call Linda at U88-0950 for directions. She's home in the evening.
