FREE FEB 10 7PM INNOVA BUILDING LIB is sponsoring a night at the movies because JUNE JORDAN will be feature speaker at the March LIB meeting "This lyrical film begins the much-needed exploration of the women who sustained and inspired the Civil Rights movement by shining an intimate light on some of our best known artist/ activists. A visual embrace of who Black women really are." Jewel le Gomez Author, The GiJda Stories "Absorbing and provocative." Paul Gilroy Univ. of Essex This exuberant celebration of African American women and their achievements features interviews with Angela Davis, June Jordan and Alice Walker. Within the context of the civil rights, Black power and feminist movements, the trio reassess how women such as Rosa Parks and Fannie Lou Hamer revolutionized American society. Angela Davis, at one time the FBI's most wanted woman, recounts her involvement with the Black Panthers and the communist party. Her rarely seen 1970 prison interview, civil rights footage and archival photos are interwoven with June Jordan's powerful poetry, linking issues of homophobia, racism, U.S. imperialism and liberation struggles worldwide. The insights of acclaimed writer Alice Walker (The Color Purple) and filmmaker Trinh T. Minh-ha enrich this engrossing portrait of Black feminism. A stirring chapter in African American history, highlighted by music from Prince. Janet Jackson, the Neville Brothers and the Staple Singers. Women athletes should pay extra attention to body, cycle changes [A HEALTH WATCH By CRAD P. DUREN, M.D. Women are being cautioned about a new medical condition that shortens the years of active physical activity. The 'female athlete triad' disorder is one of the newest topics in women's health meetings. The triad of three body conditions include absent or a decreased menstruation, thinning of bone structure at an early age, and low body weight due to improper dieting. Women and health care personnel have long known that strenuous physical activity will decrease the amount and number of days of menses. In various medical studies, up to two out of three women will stop having periods under vigorous physical training. This compares with an incidence of two to five percent of the general population of women at any one month. There is often a lowered level of estrogen in these women with absent menses, and this low hormone level may lead to thinning of the bone structure known as osteoporosis. Coaches have long known about the increased incidence of stress fractures in highly trained women athletes, more than could be simply explained on the basis of small bone size of women versus men athletes. The low estrogen decreases the amount of protein substance of the bone and therefore the amount of tissue for calcium and phosphorus that maybe laid down on the bone structure. This is apparently why simply drinking or eating extra amounts of milk and dairy products will not correct this increased chance of thinning of the bone. Some doctors are supplementing HOUSTON VOICE / ^§^ the extra dairy product in the diet with extra amounts of estrogen in the form of Premarin (Trademark) or the standard birth control tablets. The third part of this triad is the low body weight that is usually sought by the woman to make her more competitive in 'lean physique' sports as gymnastics, distance running, and ballet dancing. The low body weight is usually obtained by being very limiting with total calories eaten and may border on a malnourished state. These women athletes are often in the five percent body fat range, whereas, the usual American women at age 30 is in the 30 percent body fat range. Self-induced vomiting that may be associated in the extreme case with anorexia nervosa or bulimia robs the body of needed nutrition for daily living, and especially so for the periods of strong physical training and performance. Treatment is centered upon returning to a 'normal' body weight, increasing the amount of calcium—often to 1500 milligrams per day, and use of estrogens and if needed, adding progesterone to the daily hormone intake. This ajlows the woman to continue her physical activity, though at a somewhat lower level of activity, and to enjoy the sense of well being that often comes from being physically active. And while many women might not view regular menstruation as a desirable part of adulthood, they should view the monthly period as an indication of proper hormonal levels and balance. In each woman's reviewing her personal commitment to keeping physically fit, she is helping prolong her ability to enjoy sports activities in the healthiest and safest manner.
