Transcript 3. BAY AREA NOW MARCH MEETING AGENDA Members who met for dinner at UH/CLC during Women's Week last month (our February meeting) discussed at length the need for more time to carry out Chapter business than is available before or following our monthly program meeting. On the agenda for March 2, therefore, is a proposal to hold a monthly business meeting, open to all members, in addition to the program meeting. Such matters as location, format, and presiding officer need clarification at present. Your opinion and vote on this question will help your Chapter reach a decision that can be implemented. Presiding officer for March is Ruth Fruland. April presiding officer is Twiss Butler. NOW STATE COUNCIL MEETS MARCH 18 IN ORANGE Those interested in attending this all-day meeting should contact Dorothy Howard (486-0752) or Frances Hicks (488-8574). NIKKI VAN HIGHTOWER APPRECIATION DINNER WILL BENEFIT HOUSTON WOMEN'S CENTER The event will take place at the Galleria Plaza Hotel in Houston on April 8 at 8:00 p.m. Tickets (dinner included) are $15 per person and $35 per sponsor. The mysterious Fred Hofheinz and lots of other interesting people - including you - will be there, helping raise funds to realize the first goal of the Houston Area Women's Center - the opening of an interim shelter to house approximately 25 "battered women" and their children. The aims of the shelter will be to: 1) Offer an immediate, safe, positive refuge for abused women and their children. 2) Assist women in the development of personal resources to enable them to direct their own lives. 3) Intervene in the cycle by which children of violent homes become the next generation of abusers. 4) Increase community awareness and understanding of household violence, encourage development of appropriate resources for abused women, gather data on the extent and nature of domestic violence. Current status of the Women's Center Project is: a grant has been received from the U. S. Employment and Training Administration (CETA) covering salaries of 3 full-time staff members. The Houston Council on Human Relations has generously provided the staff members with office space and supplies. Fund-raising activities and donations have brought in so far about $7,000 of the $25,000 needed to open the interim shelter. If,you would like to make a donation, please send it to: Houston Area Women's Center, 2518 Grant, Houston, Tx. 77006. There must be at least 25,000 Houston area men and women who sympathize enough with the plight of abused women to send in $1 apiece. That's all it would take to get started. Put the bite, nicely, on friends and acquaintances. A remarkable group of officers, staff, and. aome 40 board members - a Who's Who of leaders in area health and social services - is already, at work planning this new facility. This is a significant opportunity to demonstrate to Houston citizens that feminist issues and efforts apply to all women. TEXTBOOK TASK FORCE WINDS UP 1977-78 CAMPAIGN AGAINST SEXISM IN TEXTBOOKS Last July, 115 Bills of Particulars detailing objections to individual textbooks were submitted to the Texas Education Agency by reviewers from all over Texas. In August, 34 people, including five expert witnesses, testified before the State Textbook Committee. In September, the State Textbook Committee passed a resolution requesting publishers to avoid henceforth use of "generic" masculine terms in textbooks submitted to Texas. In November, the dynamic Dr. Virginia Currey (backed by Jane Wells and other right-thinking board members) established an important precedent by persuading the State Board of Education to remove a book from the official list on account of itsisexist content.
