Transcript [Dec. 1975] from Rema Lou Brown (Rema Lou has been employed as office manager of the Houston Area Feminist Credit Union.) The telephone is 526-9108; hours: Wed 11-3; Thurs 3-8; Fri 11-6; Sat 11-3. Applications for membership will be available at our next chapter meeting. Let's get these membership applications in and make this feminist project a great success. from Dorothy Pearson The Women's Action Alliance has called for December 2, 1975, to be recognized as Women's Agenda Day. Marge Randal has Agenda Day posters and flyers, listing the points of the Agenda, explaining the purpose, and listing supporting organizations. Let's get these posters up on bulletin boards in our area to show our support. from Twiss Butler, Mary Buxton, Marjorie Randal, and Frances Hicks Sexism in Textbooks Campaign, 1975: As reported by Twiss Butler in our October newsletter, 21 Texas feminists (including 3 men) testified in Austin on September 11 on sexism in this year's crop of textbooks up for adoption by Texas Education Agency. On September 30, the Textbook Selection Committee, who had listened to our day-long presentation on the 11th, voted to adopt 5 spelling series and 5 math series for grades 1-6, with alternates in each category. It was more apparent than ever before that our ratinqs of the series for sexism had some effect on the selection committee members. One (woman) member was heard to say concerning a math series, "I ask you all to remember that the women's group opposed this series." The series was immediately voted down. None of our three "most sexist" math series was adopted, and only one of the speller series we consider highly sexist was adopted. Publishers' representatives have entirely ceased pretending that our protests have no effect. (As if the $30*Hnillion suit against Linda Eichblatt last year were not enough evidence!) Kay Whyburn, a coordinator of the Continuing Education Task Force, was approached by a publisher's employee at Now National Conference in October. This woman said that the head office of her company felt our protests had cost them both their math and speller contracts in Texas this year. We judge their defeat to have resulted from their own editorial decision, made several years ago when their books were commissioned, that criteria eliminating previous sexism would not be necessary. On November 6, Kay Whyburn of Houston, Antionette D'Oronzio of San Antonio, and Marjorie Randal of Bay Area appeared before the State Board of Education in Austin to protest the remaining highly sexist speller series. The State Board is not generally an audience sympathetic to feminist concerns, and we are told that they gave no consideration to dropping the offensive series, which is that of the Rand-McNally Company. We plan, therefore, to provide materials, as we have done since 1973, for feminists to protest local adoption of this series in school districts around the state. from Frances Hicks "Alice Doesn't" Does Well at UH/CLC: The following is quoted verbatim from "The UHCLidian," student newspaper of UH/CLC: (Nov. 75) "HOW ALICE DID (N'T). Approximately one hundred students, faculty, and staff celebrated Alice Doesn't Day, October 29, by wearing orange Alice Doesn't armbands. The People for Equal Rights Organization (PER) on the UH/CLC campus was the sponsor of the distribution of informational material arid armbands. Students participating at the distribution table in the atrium were Nora Mertz. Sonia Carmean, Linda Muir, Debbie Herring, and Shirley McFaul. Dr. Curt Smith is faculty sponsor for PER. Participants concluded that ALICE DOESN'T DAY was successful at UH/CLC. The event provoked questioning regarding women's
