Attendees of Women Connect- ing II divided into focus groups after the video: Violence, CEDAW (Convention to Elimi- nate Discrimination Against Women), Education, Health, and Working Women. Participants selected their pri- mary interest, and brainstormed about where to make personal and group commitments to con- tinue to address the problems be- fore them. For example, at the table on Violence, a suggestion was made about rediscovering the roots of feminism among early suffragettes, putting in proper perspective anger and frustration at the slow pace of justice. Another idea was that knowledge and support from feminist men could help provide resource material on how to de- velop action plans. At this table, members offered to help provide information to the media about programs to be presented before church or ecumenical groups, civic, trade, and professional or- ganizations, and help to plan and execute such programs; con- tact media through letters to edi- tors; to write or call political rep resentatives on local, state and national levels.

Franklin 424-3863 Notice was taken that at the Beijing Conference, the very first commitment received was from the Vatican. A commitment from the Holy Father was of extreme importance to all participants, not or/ly to Catholics, but to citi- zens and leadership of all coun- tries and religions. One jarring note in Sister Bradshaw's message was con- cerned with the Convention to Eliminate Discrimination Against Women. It has been rati- fied in its entirety by many na- tions of the world, but the United States is not one of them. Women Connecting II last Saturday in Evansville renews the hope that in the words of one participant, "every individual ef- fort will bring the time closer when women, one-half the world's population, will be one- half of the total human voice."
