Transcript MAY 1974 NEWSLETTER PAGE 3 Highland Mall Booth NOW has use of the Highland Mall booth this month on Friday, May 17, from 10 am to 9 pm. We will be selling copies of the N__W Guide, which the chapter published in January. We will also be publicizing the chapter's current activities and the coming National Conference. We need volunteers to staff the booth. Anyone who can take a 2- or 3-hour shift that day, please call Nancy Van Beek, 836-0848. NOW Officers to Appear on Television Newly-elected NOW officers Barbara Duke and Laura Brookshlre will appear on the Carolyn Jacicson Show on Wednesday, May 1, at noon, on Channel 7 (KTBC). They will be talking about Austin NOW in general and the work of the Rape Task Force in particular. (Incidentally, a belated thanks to Cactus Pryor for his half-hour radio interview with Sue Ricket last month to publicize the NOW Guide and the then-fledgling Rape Task Force. He was very responsive and enthusiastic about the Guide, and Jiis popular show helped spread the word that NOW is alive and well again in Austin.) Consciousness-Raising Groups Nancy Van Beek is coordinating Austin NOW's current effort to start new C-R groups. For those not familiar with C-R, these are groups of women, perhaps 6 to 12 in a group, who meet regularly, usually once a week, to discuss problems of mutual interest, and to try to understand and grow beyond problems arising from sex-stereotyping, etc. It is not group-therapy; there is no trained leader or therapist involved, only concerned individuals helping one another. Men's C-R groups will also be started if there is sufficient interest. Currently, there is one daytime group, on Monday afternoons, and a Thursday night group is being planned. If you are interested, please call Nancy, 836-0848, and tell her what days and/or nights you would be available (or which ones are definitely out). Education Task Force Task In coordination with other NOW chapters and other interested organizations around the state, Austin NOW will be reviewing proposed textbooks this summer and evaluating them re sexism. Austin will be reviewing science books for grades l^Z. If you can help in the reviewing process in June, please contact Patti Magee, 477-5397t or Sue Ricket, 836-9462. WEAL Reception WEAL (Women's Equity Action League) has a new Austin chapter, and they will be giving a reception on Thursday, May 2, at 7O0 pm at the Good Shepherd Episcopal Church, 2206 Exposition. The reception will be an opportunity for people to find out what WEAL is, and to learn about the Women's Coalition now being formed in Austin. (Dallas WEAL organized such a coalition in Dallas, and found it a very effective tool in lobbying for, and obtaining, a credit law forbidding sex discrimination in consumer credit, among other accomplishments.) Currently, the chapter is completing a credit study here and planning a conference on employment, to be held this summer. For more information, call Kay Bieberdorf, 345-5624.
