Transcript TASK FORCE REPORT : MEDIA REFORM HELP! Jeannine Wilkins needs to raise $380 mere in legal fees for her suit against Channel 8 and the U of H by the end of September. We tried desperately to publicize her case before she left the station for a teaching post at North Texas. To our dismay, we learned that the media are reluctant to cover the media. For example, the Houston Post TV section called Itself"entertainment"| the Today section said their page was "feature"! and, we assume, the news desk did not consider it news-worthy. Only Frank Haley, KTRH, Tina Morgan, KLOL and KTRH, and Alma Newsome, Channel 11 gave adequate coverage to this important sex discrimination suit. Jeannine's case is EVERYWOMAN'S. We will all be affected when she wins, not only media and university women. Please make checks payable to Jeannine Wilkins ar deposit change in our male chauvinist (you-know-what-kind-of-a) bank at the Women's Center. Put checks in our mail box. THANK YOU! KPRC/BAD NEWS DEPT. It Is interesting that coverage of the NOW/KPRC agreement appeared in BROADCASTING (July 8) under the headline, "Is Diplomacy Replacing Confrontation?", Our decision in reaching an agreement with KPRC and avoiding a petitlon-to-deny was based on "good faith" and "trust", wards we heard so often from KPRC representatives during our negotiations. A great deal of that good faith was Invested in the agreement that (quote) KPRC will establish with the cooperation and assistance of NOW a Women's Advisory Council... composed of representatives of organizations and individuals concerned with improving: the status of women In the station's viewing area (unquote). With only one letter of "assistance" from NOW, KPRC station manager Jack Harris invited representation on W. A. C. from "NOW, AWRT, AAUW, WEAL, League of Wcmen Voters, AFSCME, Desk and Derrick Club, HOW, one Chlcano, and two Black repre3ontativos. We believe the manner in which the W. A. C. was assembled was a violation of the spirit of the agreement. Further, the manner in which Harris countered our constructive criticism of it— Go ahead, sue us, Dear--is clearly taking us back from diplomacy to confrontation, where we were on that abysmal first meeting in December 1973. A great deal of care went Into our suggested list of persons for the W. A. C. We were particularly sensitive to and proud of its ethnic composition because it went well beyond tokenism. Of 10 minority women recommended as either regular or alternate members, only 1 was a NOV member, but we felt the extensive community of each was clearly directed at improving the status of women and minorities in this society. In a letter of strong protest to Harris, our Minority Women's Task Farce joined us In deploring his tcken reference to minority representation on the W. A. C. as limited to "one Chicano (male implied) and two Black representatives." Knowing his aversion to quotas, wo had to question that kind of a "goal." The greatest setback to the spirit of the agreement was the Inclusion on the W. A. C. of the Happiness of Womanhood group (HCW). KPRC asked why a civil rights group like NOW ' objected to the representation of HCW. Well, far the same reason that a black civil rights group would object to the KKK serving on an advisory council! In opposing the ERA, HOW is opposing the most significant legislative gain by women since the right to vote. HCW is not concerned with improving the status quo; thoy work to retain it. Page
