Transcript December 1972 BROADSIDE Page 3 TASK FORCE ACTIVITIES EDUCATION In addition to the Houston Indep- dent School District, there are numerous small school districts in the immediate Houston area. The Education task force is planning to attend textbook hearings in each of these districts in order to present non-sexist alternatives to the many discriminatory books presently in use. To do this the task force needs volunteers. Kay Whyburn, task force coordinator, will have a calendar of the local district hearings and volunteers may sign up at the December business meeting. The group plans to have training sessions in January to prepare volunteers for the hearings. REPRODUCTION The Reproduction and Its Control Task Force is planning a Medical Referral Service to be conducted from our new Women's Center. As a part of this service, we will be compiling a list of Houston area physicians (particularly obstetricians and gynecologists) who have provided high quality care to women. We need your help in creating and maintaining this list. If you have had personal experience with a physician whom you would like to recommend, please call Tess Wells, 864-0314. We will need the physicians's name, address, approximate fees, his attitude and approach toward women, and any other remarks you feel are relevant. This works the other way, also. If you have had a bad experience with a local physician, we'd like to know about it. MEMBERSHIP While there are no orientation meetings for the month of December, the Membership and Orientation task force will resume the monthly series of four sessions in January. Geny McConnell, task force coordinator, reports the November orientation program a real success. NOW has gained new members who are not only enthusiastic, but also knowl- edgable about all phases of the movement. Beginning with the January sessions, the orientation program will be open to all NOW members. EMPLOYMENT A formal complaint filed by the Employment task force against Rice University is currently under investigation and the group expects a decision from the HEW compliance office shortly. Members of this task force are interviewing NOW members to ascertain whether local employers are complying with federal guidelines concerning discrimination. Where noncompliance is found, letters will be sent to the offending company stating that NOW is aware of the problem and will take action if corrections are not made within a reasonable period. FUND RAISING The fund raising task force will sponsor a "Seminar On Contemporary Women" to be offered during the spring semester at the College of the Mainland. This series will be part of the school's continuing adult education classes and Houston NOW will receive $400 for its sponsorship. The Seminar will consist of eight lectures to be given by local feminists. Participating will be: Marlyne Kilbey; Carol Weiner, Helen Copitka, Helen Cassidy, Jeanne Necaise, Peggy Hall, Jan Glover, Muncy McKinney and Parrish Hirasaki. FEMINIST HISTORIAN TO SPEAK Carol Weiner, Ph.D. historian, will discuss major cultural influences on Western culture and on women's lives at the December 6 business meeting at the University of Houston. Dr. Weiner teaches a course on "History of Women" at the U. of H., and a history course at Texas Southern University. Discussion will be open this meeting on the proposed resolutions to be offered at the NOW National Conference. (See November minutes elsewhere this issue.) U OF H TO OFFER FEMINIST COURSE The University of Houston is offering a course on "Psychology of Women", led by Dr. Marlene Kilby, this spring semester for a three-hour credit (#490T, section 5738). The class will meet from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Tuesdays. The course will include discussions of biological and psychological differences of the sexes, both theory and data (results of empirical investigations), feminist writings, and projects by the students. The fall semester's course had 32 students, including five males.
