Transcript BROADSIDE — ...simultaneous discharge of all the guns on one side of a warship...any strong or comprehensive attack, as by criticism...a song, chiefly in l6th- and 17th-century England, written on a topical subject, printed on broadsides, and sung In public,..., by a professional balladeer... The Random House Dictionary of the English Language, Unabridged Edition HAPPY BIRTHDAY February 15 will be the 151st anniversary of Susan E. Anthony's birth. Her contribution to our lives is immeasurable. By the example of her life, she crave to venerations of women the couraee and the stamina to demand their legal, economic, and political equality. Yet on February 15t few will take note of ner contributions. (By an executive order, George Washington will usurp the date this year. ) In a country that celebrates National Hot Dog Week, it is the rule rather than the exception that birthdates of outstanding women in our history go unheralded. At the root of this problem is that public schools fail to teach and textbooks fail to inform of women's proud heritage. What schoolchlld knows the life of Susan B.Anthony, the contributions of Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Lucy Stone, Sojourner Truth? What high school student is aware that Anna Ella Carroll devised the military plan which U.S. Grant followed in his Tennessee River Campaign—the strategy which, for the first time, gained the upper hand for the Union and turned the tide of the Civil War. If woman's past is largely ignored, her future is also threatened. In a more dangerous and insidious way our literature and our textbooks encourage and perpetuate a subtle prejudice against women. The books children read too often provide instruction in sexually-ascribed social roles and in the sexual basis of power relationships. In most primers, brothers are older (and wiser) than sisters. In children's books women are mommies and mommies do not work. If women appear rarely as workers, it is in stereotyped white-collar jobs receptionist, telephone operator, secretary. Mostly, their "career" is marriage, and that lesson is taught early. Textbooks for the Houston Public Schools are being selected. The proposed textbooks may be examined in the professional library of the School Administration Building. Anyone can make written application to be heard at the school board meeting when textbook recommendations are considered this spring. Central New Jersey NOW is conducting a survey of grades 1-6 readers. That chapter is coordinating all efforts nationally. Houston NOW should also be involved in this program. Anyone who is interested in seeing women gain their rightful place in history and securing women greater representation in the future would do well to turn their efforts.'to this project.
