Transcript 'Rape crisis coalition cont... 5 Rape speakers bureau: Bette Anne Knoll spoke on the "Call M for Marvin" (Marvin Zlndler) show July 27. She was on a panel with District Attorney Allen Stilley and a rape victim. Knoll said she had good feelings about the presentation. However, as might be expected, Marvin Zlndler seems to have all the preconceived notions about rape that have kept rape victims from any kind of Justice for centuries. He asked the victim if her attackers climaxed and commented that she was very pretty and he wondered If that had anything to do with her being raped. Contact person for speakers Is Alice Shrader, 926-5809. Police research:The two women detectives in the homicide di- vislon (where rape cases are investigated) have been Interviewed. Coalition members are trying to arrange interviews with detectives in Juvenile division where victims under 17 are taken. Women's advocate Poppy Northcutt recently Informed Houston police of House Bill 858 which requires the police department to pay the medical expenses incurred by a rape victim who reports the rape to the police. They, of course, were not familiar with the law, and allowances for this payment have not yet been made In the city budget. Discussion group for victims: This group, which meets on the second and fourth Thursdays of the month, is open to any victim of sexual assault. People interested in attending are requested to call Sharon Moline-Vincent, 661-3231, so the organizers will have an idea whom and how many to expect at each session. Self-defense: The coalition and the student government at University of Houston will offer a self-defense course at U of H in the fall. Anyone may participate. For more information on this course call Joan Rltter at 749-1366. TITLE IX The Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, as you all know, has come out with a set of proposed regulations under Title IX of the 1972 Education Acts Amendment, banning sex discrimination In education. Title IX leaves much unsaid regarding sex discrimination which feminists would like to have plainly stated, as in the areas of textbook sexism and athletics; however, it does represent progress in some areas, such as school admissions, scholarships, treatment of students and school employees. HEW Is accepting written comments on Title IX provisions through Oct. 15, after which a final draft will be prepared, signed by the President (whoever that may be at that point In time), and put into effect 30 days after publication. The individuals, groups, vested interests, and other troglodytes who want to go back to the days when men were men and ladies were ladies and knew their place (or else!) won't let pass this chance to attack the anti-sex discrimination guidelines. This means that HEW needs FEMINIST comments, criticisms, and suggestions. At the July HCWPC program meeting, NOW member Jan Cunningham asked for caucus support for efforts to communicate feminists* concern with the Implementation of Title IX to the director of the University Scholastic League. In addition, some members of NOW are gathering and formulating comments to be sent in to HEW. Caucus members especially interested In offering input on the athletics guidelines can contact Jan Cunningham at 522-7164. Those who want to comment on the general education provisions should call Kay Whyburn, 667-8556.
