Transcript AREA COUNCIL UPDATE Remember when we discussed the advantages of having an Area Council, but we wanted to do it as simply as possible with little or no bureaucracy? A solution is now in sight. Simply and clear by-laws were approved by representatives from Innercity, Southwest, and Bay Area chapters at a meeting held on June 21. Your representative was Jeanne Salatan. Frances Hicks participated as Area 2 Coordinator, her new post. Now the by-laws go back to each chapter for its approval. Houston Area, Northwest, and West University chapters will also be asked to join. Article 2 of the By-Laws states that: "The purpose of this Council shall be to open channels of communication among the NOW chapters of Greater Houston for the sharing of ideas, to alert chapters early to the need for local action involvig the whole community of chapters, and to establish a definite procedure for obtaining 'use of name' approval and support among all the involved chapters, so that Houston NOW chapters may speak with one voice and act in unison where clear agreement exists." TITLE IX UPDATE The deadline is approaching, July 21, 1976, for each school district to complete a self- evaluation on compliance with Title IX. Check with YOUR school district and ask to be a participant in this evaluation or ask to see a copy of the completed evaluation. The hardest area for a school to take a long, hard look at is the area closest to home, employment practices, especially if the Title IX Coordinator is the Personnel Director. Most complaints of violations at HEW are now centering on employment practices. If your district has no or few women school administrators, you need to examine the practices for finding administrators, for announcing administrative vacancies, and for spelling out qualifications. Texas Education Agency furnished excellent guidelines to catch certain malpractices. Is your school using the TEA guidelines? The June issue of School Board Journal had an excellent article on ways in which women are discriminated against when they are candidates for school administrators. —Jeanne Salatan TASK FORCE FOR OLDER WOMEN At the State Conference in Abilene before a largely young crowd of NOW members, Laura Shiels annointed us all "Honorary Older Women". She didn't have to annoint me. I have spent four months looking for work in a competitive job market, which experience has aged me beyond my W years. Laura has sent two kits of material on older women's concerns. Who is interested in an active task force? The displaced homemaker bill, legislation now under consideration by Congress* is popular both with women and legislators. If we had a speaker's bureau on this subject, we could get good reception from women in the community. —Jeanne Salatan FROM OUR VARIOUS CORRESPONDENTS: Svie Whitsett: Bay Area Task Force on Rape (BATFOR) and Helpline how have information about going about getting an abortion. Call 4-88-7222. Marge Randal: Textbook Review: A number of Bay Area, Southwest NOW, and Houston NOW people have turned in rather superior review and others are reported to be in progress. There are some on hand for last-minute work, so don't put up your typewriters just yet. Call ^88-^396 for info. Nora Mertz: An article in the Houston Post reported that the Merchant Marine Academy had 25 female students, one of whom was asked to resign after being found in bed with a male student at the academy. The male student was not penalized at all. Are we to assume, therefore, that its okay for boys to sleep around but it's not okay for girls? And if that is so, who are the boys supposed to sleep with?
