Transcript February 1974 BROADSIDE Page 11 GOOD STUFF TO READ I had a chance to look over a couple of issues of off our backs recently and I was very impressed, off our backs is published by feminists in Washington, DC twelve times a year. Both issues I looked at were crammed full of news articles, book reviews, good poetry, etc. One issue devoted several pages to full coverage of the formation of a new, separate black feminist group. In addition, off our backs published a new novel by Carole Anne Douglas called Mary Anti-Mary as a special edition. It is a fascinating account of a young Irish Catholic girl's painful, ambivalent identification with the Virgin Mary. Douglas presents an interesting alternate hypothesis on the Immaculate Conception. In Chapter III she tells of Mary's journey to visit Elizabeth and of the traumatic experience that happened on the way — Mary was accosted and raped by a Roman soldier. Already betrothed to Toseph, Mary is frantic when she becomes pregnant. However, being a smart girl and "pushy" as well, she fabricates an elaborate story about visitations by an angel and by the holy ghost, and Toseph buys it. Douglas goes on to examine in detail Mary's relationship with her son, Tesus, and later, with his apostles and other followers. She found Peter somewhat hard to stomach, and refers to him as being "oblivious to sarcasm". Mary's frustrations at not being allowed to preach, her friendship with Mary Magdalene, and, above all, her distorted -relationship with Toseph make fascinating reading.
