WFF Piece

Dear Geea,

here is the piece from the Washington Feminist Faxnet. Sorry it took a
little long to get to you.



THANKS to all of the WFF activists who have been writing, calling, E-mailing
and faxing since we first raised the alarm (WFF 12/8/95) to save the Women's
Educational Equity Act. Many other organizations mobilized this year, and
WEEA has been funded once again (after being zeroed out in fiscal '96)
Congresswomen Nita Lowey (D-NY) and Connie Morella (R-MD) must be thanked
for their amendment to the House Labor/HHS Education bill that restored $2
million in funding. Although this is far below past levels for WEEA, it
makes a statement that women's education is not a zero. Thank Morella at
202-225-5341; fax 202-225-1389 and Lowey at 202-225-6506; fax 202-225-0546.
The bill now goes to the Senate -- make sure WEEA stays in by contacting Sen.
Arlen Specter (R-PA), 202-224-4254; fax 202-224-1893; copy staffer Betty Lou
Taylor at fax 202-224-1360.
