Transcript Cjoa, mi] CHURCHMOUSE LIBRAR Y E X P A N D S We have recently acquired a copy Ol Women and Madness, oy Phyllis Chesler (1 *T* A tough book, a mean book, a brave arid clearsighted book. Chesler has seen a lot; women are put in asylums for not doing the dishes, young female psychiatric patients are seduced by older male therapists (and keep up their payments), and black women are judged psychotic because white males don't understand them. All this can grow from the ridiculous early theories of psychology. Female deviants are "mad," male ones are "criminal ." at this book is also about sanity, and Chesler has a message for all of us: "Women whose psychological identities are forged out of concern for their own survival and self-definition, and who withdraw from or avoid any interactions which do not support this formidable endeavor, need not :give upf their capacity for warmth, emotionality, and nur- turance. They do not have to forsake ;the wisdom of the heart' and become 'men.' They need only transfer the primary force of their 'supportiveness' to themselves and to each other--and never the point of self-sacrifice They must start being tender and compassionate with themselves andwith other women. Women must begin to lsave' themselves and their daughters before they 'save1 their husbands and their sons; before they 'save1 the whole world." M.R. 1973 Other purchases for the Churchmouse Library, made with recently-donated funds, are Vaginal Politics, by Ellen Frankfort (19??), Sisterhood is Powerful, edited by Robin Morgan (1 and The Dialectic of Sex, by Shulamith Firestone (1970j. Chapter joins campaign to provide local libraries with feminist literature Bay Area Chapter and Houston Chapter of N.O.W. have voted to cooperate with the local Interbranch Council and Clear Lake City Branch of A.A.U.W. in seeking to have the Harris County library system acquire feminist books and periodicals for circulation. The National Topic Bibliography from A.A.U.W. on 'Woman Searching for Self"will be available for N.O.W, additions at the January Business Meeting. Please bring your suggestions, hopefully with author, publisher and price. A.A.U.W. lists some N.O.W. publications. Liberating literature TEXTBOOKS: An Astonishing Victory Feminist women of Texas were a year or two later than some in other States in protesting sexism in text books. In 197? history books were reviewed and protested, in 1973, all categories (readers, math, Latin, vocational, sociology, psychology, etc.) got the treatment. Eight women in the 3ay Area reviewed books, three apoeared at the hearing.", in Austx iii September. The results have recently been learned, and they are most gratifying. All the books found totally unacceptable because of their sexism failed of adoption, and the changes recommended in the others (hundreds in number) will render them almost completely acceptable to us. The effect we have had*reaches far beyond Texas, for this State is ie world's largest customer for texts, .nd publishers will find it economical to avoid multiple editions.
