Transcript Helen Gopltfca Continued; Pcage 3 Present Community Involvement; Hope Center for Youth, Enteoiational Women1 s Year - Harris County Steering Comm., Houston Independent School District- Committees Affirmative Action Task Force, Houston Rape Coalition, City of Houston Cffice of Women's Advocate, and Woman's Advocate University of Houston. As you can see Helen is amply qualified for the job and will be a great representative for feminists on the Boardiil TEXTBOOK TASKFORCE - 1975: UNBENDING THE TWIGS Led by state coordinators Kay Whyburn, Marjorie Randal, Mary Buxton and Linda Eichblatt (not noticeably intimidated subject of last year's $30 million lawsuit by a textbook publisher), the Texas N.O.W. Education Taskforce is well into the first phase of its annual drive to eliminate sexist content from textbooks to be purchased by the state for use in Texas public schools. The list of categories from which books will be selected this year is considerably shorter than in past years, consisting of elementary school mathematics and spelling, as well as some bi-lingual material. Since its brevity is matched, however, by a shortened time period for public viewing and criticism of the books, Taskforce'members are working fast to prepare and submit Bills of Particulars to assure feminist input during this fall's public hearings. Workers include Rema Lou Brown, Twiss Butler, Sammye Blessitt, Shirley McFaul, Nellie Wegmann,. Dorothy Pearson, Ruth Ann Morrison, Ann Smith, and Tessa Stut.ts,as well as Galveston N.O.W., coordinated by Marlene Hardin, and members of numerous N.O.W. chapters throughout the state. Reviewers report that the impact of Taskforce efforts over the past several years is clearly evident in the current crop of textbooks. Most publishers are moving toward avoidance of anti-female stereotypes and providing a more even-handed representation of males and females in illustrations, story-form math problems and spelling drill sentences. Fond assumptions and beloved prejudices die hard, however, and reviewers still find themselves dealing with such biassed assertions as: "She is learning shorthand because she wants to be a secretary." (Follett Publ. Co.) "My brother is planning to study medicine in college.!! " "Mother made some new curtains for the kitchen windows.11 "I like to watch Mother working in the kitchen." "Appoint a girl in our employ to do the embroidery." "He has ten men in his employ." "She was shy but did not mean to be coy." "We admired his poise under such stress." "She is ignorant of her current bank balance." "She seemed to be ignorant of all driving rules." "David is an extremely bright, or intelligent, boy." "Only a human being can express himself in words." "Bother: My sister is a bother." "Knowledge: all that man knows." "Mind: He has a good mind...He made up his mind to study hard. Judy minds her little brother while her mother goes to the store." "Wise: He is a wise man." (American Book Co.) (Silver Burdett ) (Follett Puhl. Co.) (Silver Burdett ) (Merrill Co. ) (American Book Co.) Plus ya change, plus c'est la meme chose, y'all!
