Transcript BAY AREA TASK FORCE ON RAPE —3 - Begun at a gathering of Bay Area NOW members in July, 1975, the Bay Area Task Force on Rape is rapidly developing strength in membership and community recognition. Help has been forthcoming in the initial stages from Houston Rape Crisis Coalition in the form of training sessions and a successful organizational model. Like the Houston Coalition, the Bay Area Task Force on Rape is an autonomous body, its membership not dependent on affiliation with other local organizations or institutions. In addition to gathering relevant rape statistics and planning training sessions for hospital employees, the Task Force promotes community familiarity with its goals of rape prevention and assistance to rape victims by establishing communication with local law enforcement officials, and with the public through newspaper articles. Persons interested in working with the Bay Area Task Force on Rape can contact Evie Whitsett (488-1777) for further information. CONTINUING TASK FORCE ON EDUCATION FOR WOMEN Task Force representatives from Bay Area NOW have scheduled interviews during the past month with textbook selection committee members in a number of local school districts. Many teachers are becoming aware of the negative influence of sexism in textbooks - as well as in the classroom - and welcome the opportunity to discuss it with us and to study the documentation which we provide. Results of committee balloting in these districts are most gratifying. A heavily sexist spelling series has been uniformly rejected, having been judged out of date in all respects. Both the math series and the spelling series which come closest to being non-sexist are being well accepted, thus demonstrating the truth of our contention that the best publishers have been the quickest to perceive the disadvantages of sexist content and the most intelligent at discovering how to eliminate it from their textbooks.

Call Frances Hicks, 488-8574, for details on transportation, and volunteer your talents for workshops, registering, voting chores, etc, —Frances Hicks, Representative a******************************************^ Total Woman, Circa 1838: "Now that you are married, do not always expect the lover. Be more than ever anxious to please, study his interest, make it yours. If any little domestic care troubles you, such as indifferent servants etc. let it not ruffle your temper. Is it not better to endure this than wear him by not being amiable? We undergo soon after marriage a trying change in our constitutions. We feel cross because we feel badly & scarcely know what ails us - not one gentleman in ten can make allow, xe for our peevish fits. Now dear if you ever feel them, conquer it and be only what you seemed to be when first you won his love. Be more cautious of wounding the feelings of a husband than you were ever anxious to please the lover. If you are fond of any amusement he does not approve and cannot share, give it up - you will find your reward in so doing. You are to keep him happy & cheerful & to make sacrifices if necessary without murmuring. You may see faults in him that in your fondness you never dreamed of. Be as blind to them as you can. If by gentleness & love you cannot alter them, then conform yourself to your circumstances, for reproaches will never do good. Better feel the secret pain than let him fear you love him less than when you thought him faultless." —American Heritage, 12/67, p. 35. **********************************************************
