Transcript 8 Ever wonder why little girls want to be nurses and not doctors, secretaries and not executives, why they start dreaming of marriage when they're barely out of the cradle, why they regard with awe the little boy down the street? Some feminists believe the books they read is the answer. There are several concerted efforts to change the image of women and girls in school textbooks and children's literature. Central New Jersey NOW is conducting a survey of grade 1-6 readers. They have found that women are usually portrayed only as mothers or sometimes as teachers and that girls are portrayed as younger and sillier than boys. A majority of the stories are "boys' stories." The New Jersey NOW chapter is asking NOW members to put pressure on publishers, teachers, and school boards and administrators. The chapter is coordinating all efforts and asks interested chapters or individuals to write to Sigrid Hammond, 116 Linden Lane, Princeton, N.J. Women from Lollipop Power, a newly organized group that is producing non-sexist children's literature, wants women who are interested in writing or illustrating books for pre-school children and early readers to write to: Lollipop Power, P.O. Box 1171, Chapel Hill, N.C. Women who want to write books for older children should contact Feminist Press, 5504 Greenspring Ave., Baltimore, Md. 21209. Feminist Press is interested primarily in biographical pamphlets (50- 100 pages) on individual women or groups of women, past and present, for high school students and adults. Any woman who is interested is asked to name her subject when she corresponds with Feminist Press. KNOW YOUR ENEMY "If a woman grows weary and at last dies from childbearing, it matters not. Let her only die from bearing. She is here to do it." - Martin Luther "The fact of the matter is that the prime responsibility of a woman probably is to be on earth long enough to find the best mate possible for herself and conceive children who will improve the species. - Norman Mailer "By herself, woman is all mixed up but superb as an auxiliary. Woman is inanimate or on the defensive until you create a feeling such as praise, then she goes all out. Women act only on orders. Why ask women when they need only to be told?" - tips from G.C. Payette, a marriage counselor and author of How to Get and Hold a Woman "The onlv position for women in SNCC is prone." 'y ' -Stokely Carmichael
