August 18. The club was the downlink site for Clinton's 50th birthday celebrity party. The protest was because Clinton plans to sign Ihe "welfare repeal" bill. Poor women and their families have nothing to celebrate. The bill is a devastating, life-threat en ing piece of legislation to women and their families. It will put an estimated 1.1 million children in poverty, increasing the current number of 10 million children already in poverty by 10%. The bill will end America's 61-year guarantee of aid to poor families. While Bill Clinton uses his birthday to raise $50 million for the Democratic National Committee, poor women and children will still be reeling from the blows of the welfare repeal act. "We will make sure President Clinton knows that women want to end poverty— not punish poor women and their Families," said Jeanne Sommerfeld, President of Houston Area NOW. "We are calling upon him to keep his promise to veto any measure that further impoverishes women and children. There is nothing 'moderate' about the punitive welfare bill which emerged from the conference committee, nor is there anything 'moderate' about the people who are backing the bill." Hungry For Justice NOW is encouraging citizens to speak- oul against the welfare repeal bill because its effect on women and children will be devastating. NOW has launched the Hungry for Justice campaign. The hill will eliminate lhe safely net tor poor women and children. Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC), tin- federal welfare program, would be eliminated and replaced by block grants io ihe states. Federal funds would be slashed an estimated $55 billion over 5 years, and states would he allowed to cut Rinding by 20% on top of that. When a state runs out of money, poor people will be left with no means of support. There are severe restrictions on aid to legal immigrants. There would be a lifelong time limit of five years. While this provision requires a recipient to work for pay, it does not provide adequate funds for education, job training or child care. Nor does it value the work that is required to raise children. States will have the option to deny assistance to children born to teenage women if she does not live at "home" Young mothers would be forced to live with parents or other guardians, even if there is violence in her family—in order to receive benefits. Furthermore, the bill will eliminate the requirements for states to adapt their programs to meet the needs of women and their children who are forced out of their homes as a result of domestic violence. Both houses of Congress had previously voted for this minimal protection. What can you do? Tell President Clinton to veto this horrid bill. Call 202/456-111. e-mail: president@whitehouse.gov.

According to early feminists and suffrage leaders Carrie Chapman Catt (founder of the League of Women Voters) and Nettie Shuler, "To get the word 'male' out of the Constitution cost women 52 years of pauseless campaigning. During that time they were forced to conduct 56 campaigns of referenda to male voters; 480 campaigns to get Legislatures to submit suffrage amendments io voters; *»7 campaign* lo gci Si.i.- constitutional conventions to write women's suffrage into their state constitutions; 227 campaigns to get State party conventions to include women's suffrage planks... and 19 campaigns with 19 successive Congresses."
