Transcript Page 4 BROADSIDE August 1974 RAPE (continued) statistics of incidence of rape, myths about rape, refutations of the myths, psychological effects of sexual assault on the victim, possible political-cultural causes of rape, self- defense basics, sexual child abuse, and the processes that a victim is put through in the hospital, police station, and courts. They are working with a feminist college speech teacher in preparing these first outlines and speeches to insure clarity and effectiveness in presentation. Most of the speakers have some prior public speaking experience. If you know of groups that would be interested in having speakers on rape, call Alice Shrader at 926-5809 (call late at night). Legal Research: These people are in contact with a woman law student from Austin who is researching rape laws for legislator Sarah Weddington who wants to work on rape law reform in Texas. Pam Pitt volunteered at the July 16 meeting to organize and supervise this group. She so far Is the only active participant with experiential knowledge of law. Medical Research: Some members of Women in Medicine, an organization of women medical students, have expressed an interest in joining the Coalition and working through Ben Taub Hospital as advocates for rape victims. This development is in very beginning stages. Police Research: Members of this group have interviewed the two women detectives in the Homicide Division which is.where rape victims are taken. They are also trying to arrange interviews with detectives in the Juvenile Division where victims under 17 are taken and with the male detectives in Homicide. They reported that Poppy Northcutt, Women's Advocate, recently informed the police of the law that requires them to pay the medical expenses incurred by a rape victim who reports the rape to the police. They were not familiar with the law. Discussion Group: At the time of this writing the group has met once and considered it a successful venture. It is a place for rape victims to meet together and discuss their fears and problems. Betty Beaudry, a psychiatric nurse, facilitated the meeting. Coalition members who are working with her express continued good feelings about her as a person and as a professional and as a feminist. Anything anyone says in these meetings is absolutely confidential and any victimized woman is welcome to participate. There is no fee, of course. Meetings are held the second and fourth Thursdays at the First Unitarian Church, 5210 Fannin, The contact person is Sharon Moline-Vincent, 661-3231. At the July 16 meeting there was $162 in the Coalition checking account. Bette Anne Knoll was elected Coordinator of the coalition and Susan Watkins was elected Secretary-Treasurer. Alice Shrader EDUCATION Students and potential students: How many times have you had to say, "School doesn't leave me time for feminist activities"? No longer! Come to the Education Task Force meeting on Tuesday, August 27. 7:30 pm at the Women's Center and hear Tina Reyes of the University Without Walls explain how you can earn university credit for feminist projects. If you have a degree, come hear how you can help your sisters and perhaps be paid a small amount. Textbooks are going well. Houston has completed its work. Congratulations! If you hear from us August 1-9, it will be to bail out your sisters across Texas who fell by the wayside. Kay Whyburn
