Transcript EDUCATION TASK FORCE REPORT: Continuing Task Force On Education For Women Texas Feminist Curriculum Review 1973 - When Sexism Is History COORDINATORS : MAILING ADDRESS : Mary Buxton 18302 Pt. Lookout Dr. Kay Whyburn Houston, Texas 77058 Marjorie Randal 713-333-3872 Textbook Protest Hearings in Austin, Sept. 11, 197U Twenty-two women from Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, Killeen-Ft. Hood, Northwest Houston, Austin, and Bay Area participated in the formal hearings, all day on Sept. 11th. We testified before the concentrated attention of Texas Education Agency officials, publishers 'representatives, some Textbook Committee members, and the public, through the media. Once again we women demonstrated a high level of competence and the ability to share a difficult, complex, and sustained task. Special recognition to those members of our Chapter who traveled to Austin: Rema Lou Brown, superb timer, who allocated 2U0 minutes among the participants and categories; frforge Randal, Chair of Basal Reading Protest, who effectively and compassionately rebutted a woman publisher's representative in oral response, Twiss Butler, whose witty testimony led to a lunch shared with Mr. Golden, Director of Textbook Division in TEA, Frances Hicks, who testified, served as librarian for the TF, drove members to Austin, and shared cramped sleeping arrangements, Linda Eichblatt, who did two sets of testimony and helped with other tasks, and Carol Burke, who served as our legal advisor. Our appreciation also to Nellie Wegmann, who served as Press Officer, and ABOVE ALL to the 17 Bay Area writers of Bills of Particulars on the books, sine qua non... Media coverage has been extensive, if uneven in quality. We have made arrangements for the total effort—Bills, Publishers' Responses, and transcripts of the testimony to be forwarded to HEW's Civil Rights Division as evidence that textbooks should be under the jurisdiction of Title K. A note passed midway in the testimony reads: "We're calm, we're intelligent, we're Lookin' Great1 Mary Buxton POSTSCRIPT: Ifery has somehow neglected to mention that she also traveled to Austin. She made an impressive summation speech at the end of our alloted four hours, and replied on behalf of the TF to questions from TEA officials during publishers' rebuttals. But she is due the greatest credit for providing the organizational framework for this year's CTFEW work, through her letters to Texas NCW Chapters during the summer and fall. There is no question that Bay Area Chapter has the most distinguished Education Task Force Chairperson in the State (possibly in the world), this year. M Randal BUT THE FIGHT MUST GO ON: Proposed HEW Regulations for the inplementation of Title H are breezy with loopholes. We have until October l£th to write asking for application of Title IX in an effective manner. They should at least specify review procedures on textbooks in school systems, prohibit discrimination in all vocational and professional programs, public or private, equalAaggregate expenditures for athletics for members of each sex, prohibit the use of pension rate tables which differentiate on the basis of sex, and eliminate punitive maternity leave provisions.
