Women seek greater political power

(Continued fromPaye1)
The guidelines included re-
solutions calling for implemen-
tation of the equal rights
amendment, an immediate end
to the Indochina war, an end to
the traditional masculine use of
force as a means of conflict re-
solution, the repeal of all laws
affecting a woman's right to
decide her own reproduction
and sexual rights, and the en-
forcement of existing and pas-
sage of proposed anti-discrim-
ination laws.
"Women have begun to realise
at last their potential for poli-
tical' power," Rep. Shirley Chis-
holm, (D-N.Y., told reporters.
"We are women, we have po-
tential and we are going to use
it," she added.
Chisholm and Abzug were
among the 21 delegates elected
by the caucus to a steering
committee to plan the future
course of action for the move-
ment.
Others elected include author-
ess Betty Friedan; National
Welfare Rights Organization

official Beulah Sanders; writ-
er and Democratic National
Policy counicl asmber Gloria
Steinem: LaDonna Harris, In-
dian rights leader; Shana Alex-
ander, editor-in-chief of Mc-
Call's mnagazine: Fannie Lou
Hamer civil rights leader and
candidate for the Mississippi
state senate: and Virginia Al-
len, a member of the Florida
Commission on the Status of
Women.
The caucus resolved to enlist
women of all political, economic,
age, race and ethnic groups to
rally behind female candidates
committed to feminist priority's
and humanist goals.
The group also urged the re-
form of existing policies of po-
litical parties which have ex-
cluded women from positions of
power, with the specific demand
that women comprise at least
50 per cent of the delegates to
both major parties 1972 na-
tional nominating conventions.
"Women have the political
power to turn out of office
every politician who does n o t

support equal rights.' said Rep.
Chisholm yesterday.
Friedan said yesterday wom-
en will work to exercise that
power so that, "by 1976 it will
not be a joke to run a woman
for President of the U n i t e d
States."
When necessary. Chisholm
added, the caucus will "cross
normal party lines or work out-
side of normal party lines" to
get qualified women elected to
national office.
The convention was marked
by the formation of several mil-
itant. dissenting splinter groups.
A black caucus, formed early
in the proceedings, issued a
resolution calling on NWPC
to condemn all forms of rac-
ism and racist women candi-
dates for political office.
A radical caucus stressed the
need to resist imitation of
"male heirarchical organiza-
tional structures."
A youth caucus termed t h e
steering committee "unrepre-
sentative" because only one of
