Transcript TAKE THE "ASS" OUT OF ASSERTIVE (A Workshop For Women) For years women lived their lives according to very strict socially assigned roles for their behavior. Those roles demanded passivity and restraint to an almost inhuman degree. While remaining overtly compliant, many women were seething with anger and frustration. With the advent of the women's liberation movement, women began to reject sterotypic roles and explore new methods of behavior. The only other model for behavior that was available was the socially approved agressiveness of men. Its results were not totally satisfying. There is another method of behavior that can comfortably enable women to get what they want: assertiveness. Assertiveness allows people to be in touch with their feelings and to express those feelings without being offensive. You are invited to attend a learning and participation workshop on assertiveness for women sponsored by Ann Barnett and Associates, Inc. and Houston Area NOW. The workshop will be held on Saturday, June 12, from 9 AM to 1 PM. The cost is $25 (subject to increase pending the number of registrants). Location of the workshop will be announced in the June BROADSIDE. To pre-register, contact Ann Barnett and Associates, 772-6102. AMERICAN WOMEN'S BICENTENNIAL ESSAY CONTEST The NOW Legal Defense and Education Fund has established a $1000 national prize for the best essay by a high school student on the lost history of one or more American women. Houston Area NOW has voted to participate and is providing a local prize of $25 plus a feminist book donated by University Boulevard Bookstore. The contest is open to female and male students in grades 9-12. The 1000 to 2000 word essays will be judged on the basis of original research and quality of presentation. They may focus on the accomplishments of women in America in any area of endeavor. Local judges will be Nikki Van Hightower, University of Houston Political Science Professor; Norma Lee, public school librarian; and Betty Barnes, Government Instructor at San Jacinto College. National judges will be Betty Friedan, Sheila Tobias, Mary Jean Tully, and Lenore J. Weitzman. Entries must be postmarked no later than June 11 and mailed to: American Women's Bicentennial Essay Contest, Houston Area NOW, 3602 Milam, Houston 77002. For further information, call Betty Barnes at 487-2489.
