Transcript BROADSIDE HOUSTON CHAPTER NATIONAL ORGANIZATION FOR WOMEN Vol. 5, No. 2 BROADSIDE February 1974 HCWPC CALLS FOR RESIGNATION OF HAZEL BRACKEN The Harris County Women's Political Caucus met on Tanuary 16, 1974 and passed the following resolution: "WHEREAS the elected Trustees of the Houston Independent School District are the persons in control of the policies and programs of the entire school system and have supervisory control over all male and female administrative personnel of H.I.S.D. , over all male and female teachers, and over all male and female students, and WHEREAS Ms. Hazel Bracken, a Trustee of the H.I.S.D. , having been elected by voters of both sexes and having been duly sworn to work for the interests of all children in the school system, regardless of sex, on an equal basis, has publicly stated her belief that "woman is subordinate to man" , and has further stated that she "has no wish to compete with men", and that "all key administrators should be men" , and WHEREAS the schools have the responsibility for instructing students in moral precepts , providing an example for young people, the example set by Ms. Bracken in publicly implying that she will not abide by Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Title IX of the Higher Education Act and the Texas Equal Rights Act, RESOLVES to ask for the resignation of the aforesaid Trustee, Bracken, as being unfit for the position she holds and because, in having campaigned for such a supervisory position and having been elected to this responsible decision-making post, she obviously feels reluctant to exercise any necessary tasks of the office which would cause her to have a superior position over males within the system; because of her reluctance she would probably be inefficient and indecisive in such matters and would tend to derogate the merits and accomplishments of female students, female teachers and female administrative personnel. Ms. Hazel Bracken's remarks are an insult to every female human being in the Houston School District."
