Transcript Area COURSES OF INTEREST TO FEMINISTS Course Sctn Time Title UNEMPLOYMENT: HIGHER FOR WOMEN ACROSS THE BOARD The 1979 unemployment rates among 1977 graduates in all science and engineering fields (physical science, math and computer science, psychology, life sciences, and engineering) were higher for women than for men at both bachelor's and master's degree levels, and in almost all fields, as in previous years. Particularly high discrepancy were seen in the social sciences, with a 13.3% unemployment rate for women as compared with only 2.4% for men, life sciences, with 5.3% unemployment for women as compared with 1.7% for men, and across all science and engineering fields, with a 4.3% unemployment rate for women as cocmpared with 1.7% for men. (Data from Project on_the Status & Education of Women, #31, Sumner, 1$81, abstracted by Synthesis, 12/81T" When Judge Marion J. Callister issued his "opinion" on the constitutionality of (1) state's right to rescind ratification of a constitutional amendment, (2) the extension act, and (3) the majority needed to pass the extension act, another name was firmly appended to the list of those religiously inspired anti-feminists who use their official positions to keep women down. "Judge" Callister, a man who has held very high positions in the Church of the Latter Day Saints (Mormon) which officially opposes the Equal Rights Amendment, was expected to rule the way he did, but the scope of his opinion is breathtaking. As Eleanor Smeal said, an obscure judge in a lower federal court is attempting to re-write the law- His decision was not unexpected, and there is no question that it delighted the antifeminists. How much it hurt us is debateable. NOW officers report a jump in contributions as a "blacklash" effect. It is being appealed, of course. Jo Ann Evansgardner OKLAHOMA The campaign to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment is intensifying. And the prospects are encouraging. Both Florida and Oklahoma will probably come up in January. Florida is a difficult state to organize because it contains five media markets and varies widely in make-up from the north to the south. But the speaking tour by Ellie Smeal and the missionary project have gotten favorable press and good reception there. In Oklahoma, our campaign is strong. The leadership in the State Legislature will sponsor the bill. NOW at UH could help out by sending missionaries there. Training is provided as are lodgings. Or we could help out with gas costs for transportation. People are needed to rally, phonebank, do door-to-door canvassing, etc If you would like to be a missionary for the Equal Rights Amendment, Oklahoma is a good place for Texans to contribute and one of our best chances to turn the tide. We have several members who have expressed interest. Perhaps if you add your energy we will reach "lift-off" and send a earful.

Zivley needed. Editorial Note: Listing these courses does not imply any feminist judgment as to their content or politics. The topics of the courses are9 however, topics that feminists have called attention to. The shortness of the list implies a serious criticism of our University's policy which appears to stifle academic treatment of feminist issues. The word "stifle" is amply justified when one compares the availability of courses here with those in other major universities. We invite interested persons to review the Feminist Press publication - Women's Studies Programs and Courses Offered in the United States. JoAnn Evansgardner Q COUNTDOWN TO JUNE 30,1982 Illinois has a very active campaign that will intensify during their election period. To pass the Equal Rights. Amednment in Illinois presently requires a three-fifth majority. The vote was two short last time. A major strategy is to change the 3/5's rule to a simple majority. This change requires only a simple majority. In Virginia, ten out of twelve targeted elections were won. The newly elected governor, Charles Robb (Lady Bird's son-in-law), has stated that he is willing to "twist arms" to facilitate passage of the ERA. All of the above looks promising. BUT, In order to ratify ERA by June 30, 1982, WE MUST PUMrHfcRE ENERGY AND MONEY INTO THE CAMPAIGN. Solicit friends and relatives as well as ante-ing up yourself. Money for the Media Campaign should be sent NOW to: National Organization for Women P. 0. Box 7813 Washington, D. C. 20044 Energy can be utilized as: **Missionary Work in Oklahoma **Work on Action Team in Houston (Sherri Forschler) **Message Brigading in Houston (Jeanne Sonmerfeld) Jeanne Sommerfeld
