High School Women's Liberation. FPS: A Magazine of Young People's Liberation.
This pamphlet contains 19 consciousness-raising articles for high-school women which help define their roles and rights as females, family members, and participants in the labor market. The first section, Education and Liberation, discusses ways in which schools, families, and society suppress women. For example, women are urged to take home economics courses, they are forbidden to participate in certain athletic programs, and their role is ignored in conventional history texts. Consciousness-raising groups and a list of 38 thought-provoking questions are presented as vehicles for discussion about women's problems. Section two, Four Perspectives, describes (1) stigmas of lesbianism, (2) double oppression of black women, (3) conflict between women's liberation and youth liberation, and (4) sex-role pressures experienced by young males. In section three, Health and Injustice, information is provided about women's self-help gynecological clinics, legal rights to medical care in all 50 states, and how laws discriminate against women in matters of sexual delinquency. Male-oriented media such as rock music and advertisements are criticized in section four, Sexism All around Us. Section five reviews three books for young women and two appendices list more books and youth liberation materials such as buttons, posters, and T-shirts. (AV)
