ATTENTION: WOMEN IN THE MEDIA - Three essential references for you: 1. A monthly publication, Media Report to Women, is the best way to keep fully informed on the progress and problems of women in the media. ($10/per year) 2. MRW also publishes an annual Index/ Directory of Women's Media, an invaluable reference of media groups and individual media women. ($6) Both publications are available from MRW, 3306 Ross Place N.W., Washington D.C. 20008. 3. Ida Morris, former Women's Editor of the Valley Morning Star, Harlingen, Texas, has compiled an excellent reference called Women and the Media which deals primarily with examples of sexism found in the Valley's newspapers, programming and advertising. It is an excellent tool for anyone wanting to know where to begin the campaign to change the image of women in the media. Available directly from Ida Morris, 513 Mesquite Drive, Laguna Vista, Texas 78578. ($5 each copy plus $1 for postage.) letter from staff ~) Dear Subscribers and Supporters, Breakthrough is taking a summer break. We are combining two issues - June-July and August- September — so that our staff may take some time off during the summer months. Breakthrough is a rewarding and fulfilling labor of love. It is also sheer hard work. We will also use our time to work on our advertising and promotion programs. Advertisers and subscribers are the main source of support for Houston Breakthrough. It is apparent there is a need for Breakthrough in our community judging from letters, visits, and phone calls to our office. Women and men have given us story leads and ideas, or written stories for us. Readers have expressed appreciation for the extensive news coverage given to stories such as the testimony of feminist groups who opposed the life-time appointment of J. D. Stevens to the Supreme Court, the mysterious circumstances leading to the death of Karen Silkwood who tried to expose the dangers of plutonium to the government and public, the reasons behind the dissolution of the UTSSN, until now, the most unique and progressive nursing school in the country. If we are to continue being the only women's newspaper in the State of Texas, we will need your added support. Each one of you can help us by just getting us one new subscriber or one new account. Most of you probably have department store or oil company credit cards. Please let these firms know that you would like to see them support a newspaper like Breakthrough. (After all, women make 75% of all consumer decisions. We should have something to say about how the advertising dollar is spent.) Use your Consumer Power! We would like to see the major companies use Breakthrough as a clearing house to announce non-traditional, well-paying job openings for women. Many of our readers have requested this kind of ad. Breakthrough is the best source to reach the highly-qualified applicants these companies seek to hire. And as for reaching more potential subscribers, if each reader will simply send us the names and addresses of eight to ten friends, we will send them complimentary copies of our paper. We are uncomfortably aware that there are still thousands of women in Houston who are unaware that there exists a newspaper for and about them. It has been a struggle getting started. We have had difficulty setting up a city-wide distribution network because many of those in decision-making positions have refused to carry our newspaper in their grocery store chains, office buildings, bookstores, and news stands. The news stand in the Galleria, for one case in point, was told by their out-of-state management that they didn't want to carry a newspaper "like that." They do, however, carry The Enquirer, Playboy and the other "girlie- type" magazines. We've had to fight all the feminist stereotypes in creating a legitimate newspaper of primary but not exclusive interest to women. And, all along, we've had men working with us — dispelling at least one stereotype that feminists are anti-male. We are all committed to Breakthrough. We believe that "women are news" and that "women mean business". We hope you will continue to support us as subscribers and advertisers—or in any way you can—for a Houston breakthrough! —from the staff at Breakthrough W
