Transcript August 1974 BROADSIDE Page 3 TASK FORCE REPORTS MINORITY WOMEN After the July program meeting presented by the Minority Women's Task Force, NOW members asked for a list of books about black women. Check the library for the journal Black Scholar; the December 1970 issue is devoted to the black woman. There is an article by Shirley Chisholm, "Racism and Anti-Feminism", in the February 1970 issue; and one by Barbara Sizemore on "Sexism and the Black Male" in the March-April 1973 issue. Books to look for include The Black Woman, edited by Toni Cade (Signet paperback); The Good Fight by Shirley Chisholm (Bantam paperback); Unbought and Unbossed by Shirley Chisholm (Avon paperback); Black Women in White America edited by Gerda Lerner (Vintage paperback); Black Woman's Liberation by Pamela Newman and Maxine Williams (Pathfinder Press); Woman Power by Celestine Ware (Tower Press); and Gorilla My Love edited by Toni Cade Bambara (Pocket paperback). On June 26, Jan Hanchett and Susan Heavey talked about the Women's Center and Minority Women Task Force on KYOK's "Grassroots" call-in talk show. During the hour they were able to present many facts, despite frequent commercials. Alice Bonner, an attorney and co-host of the show, also made some good points, especially when she brought out that she had been discouraged from taking up law because she didn't "look like a lawyer". The Task Force is presently planning a mail-out, to consist of questions and good answers concerning black and brown women. The Task Force hopes to contact organizations as well as individuals who share NOW's goals of ending sexism and racism in our society. If you would like a copy, leave your name and address in the Minority Women Task Force box at the Center. Also, please give us names and addresses of interested persons or groups. Remember: NICE PEOPLE COME IN ALL COLORS! Task Force meetings will be the first and third Thursday of each month. Feel free to come, nice people. Jan Hanchett and Clara Willing RAPE The Rape Task Force met with the NOW Executive Committee on July 13 to discuss the structure of the Task Force and its relationship to the Houston Rape Crisis Coalition. Alice Shrader was appointed Task Force Coordinator. The group decided to recommend to the NOW membership at the next business meeting that the Task Force work with the Coalition. Members of the Task Force are presently working in the coalition only as individuals. It is anticipated that the Task Force Coordinator will serve as representative-reporter-liaison between NOW and the Coalition. It will be the duty of the Task Force Coordinator to be aware of NOW policies in relation to activity of the Coalition and to bring any possible areas of conflict to the attention of the membership of NOW. Progress reports on priority subgroups in the Coalition are as follows: Self-Defense: The Coalition in conjunction with the student government at the University of Houston will offer a self-defense course at UofH in the fall. Anyone may participate. For more information on this course, call Joan Ritter at 749-1366. The Coalition Speakers Bureau will conduct the first session of the class and will talk about rape. Speakers: Bette Anne Knoll, NOW member, was invited to speak on the Marvin Zindler show on July 20. She has also arranged a speaking engagement at the Memorial YWCA. This group sees its primary function as an information service to the community. Speakers would like to initially address small groups of people and plan to solicit speaking engagements with some women's groups and youth groups in churches and community organizations. Speakers are preparing speeches and panel discussions to include the following areas of information: continued
