Extractions: "Prevention. Correction. Protection. Interfacet." Sexual harassment and discrimination claims at the workplace have dramatically increased in the last fifteen years across the United States. The financial stakes have also grown exponentially, with million dollar jury verdicts no longer a rarity. In our diverse and litigious world, more and more employers are recognizing the need to acknowledge, include and accommodate the increasing cultural, religious, racial, gender and other differences at the workplace. Failure to recognize and resolve potential problems may result in expensive, time-consuming, resource-intensive and morale-debilitating litigation. Interfacet provides you the tools to prevent and correct these problems.

In an effort to improve the communication flow to Team Coast Guard, I have compiled some gender-specific information. This information is intended for informational use only and should not be considered Coast Guard policy unless otherwise indicated. Afloat Opportunities Transfer season is fast approaching. If you are a supervisor, make sure you begin early to work on awards for your departing members. If you are departing, start testing the waters to find out if anyone is taking action on an award for you, if you feel you have earned one. Frequently, people forget and then it is too late. And, as personal awards are important for both officers and enlisted, this is not an area that you want to let drop. If the individual preparing your award needs assistance, provide some bullets to help them out. Bottom line: start thinking about this early and act now. Everyone should have received a report on the Workforce Cultural Audit (WCA) mailed to their home address. Please read the report thoroughly and discuss the issues with those in your workplace. A large factor in creating change within your work environment is achieved by simply bringing issues to light. The details provided by the report you received are excellent for stimulating this kind of dialogue. Take advantage of the e-mail address listed on the back of the report to provide comments or ask questions.

Extractions: Slums, Sleuths and Anarchists: Gender issues in the work of George R. Sims Chris Willis Introduction In Marie Belloc Lowndes' 1913 novel The Lodger , the heroine notices an imposing figure at an inquest on one of Jack the Ripper's victims: "He was a famous journalist, whose shrewed animated face was familiar to her owing to the fact that it was widely advertised in connection with a preparation for the hair ... The gentleman was at the centre of an eager circle; half a dozen men were talking to him, listening deferentially when he spoke.." (1) This "famous journalist" was no figment of Marie Belloc Lowndes' imagination but was a description of popular writer George R Sims, with whom she had worked on the part-work Living London (2). At the time of the Ripper murders, Sims was one of London's best-known journalists, and his appearance was known to many from his portrait on advertisements for Tatcho hair tonic. Sims took a keen interest in the Ripper murders, possibly because he been a suspect himself at one point. In his autobiography he recalled: "As a journalist I followed the Jack the Ripper crimes at close quarters. I had a personal interest in the matter, for my portrait, which appeared outside the cover of a sixpenny edition of my "Social Kaleidoscope" was taken to Scotland Yard by a coffee-stall keeper as the likeness of the assassin."

F or several years, the Palo Alto chapter of CPSR hosted a working group on women and computing. Although that group is currently inactive, CPSR continues to maintain this electronic archive on women and computing. It is critical that women get involved in all aspects of computing, if they are not to be left out of the information age. As of just a couple of years ago, the number of women entering computer science and related fields was very small. According to a study by the Research Foundation for Improving the Representation of Women in the Technology Workforce , the declining number of women obtaining Bachelors and Masters degrees in computer science since 1996. They report: " With the overall production of IT graduates stable or declining, we need to investigate the demographics related to the graduates. Again, using computer science as a representative discipline, the percentage of women has declined since 1986. For bachelor's degrees, the number peaked in 1986 when women represented approximately 36% of the total number of graduates. In 1996, approximately 27% of the bachelors and masters degree were earned by women while only 15% of Ph.D. degrees were earned by women. When we consider that women represent approximately 51% of the total population, these percentages cause concern. It is crucial that we understand why the percentage of women in IT is so low and why the numbers have in fact been declining since 1986.
Extractions: Emblazoned with various social, moral and religious opinions, disclosing and discussing one's transgendered status with adolescent and adult children is frequently one of the most difficult issues brought up by clients in my counseling practice. Because our western society is polarized with gender and sexual stereotypes transgendered individuals survive relatively closeted familially and socially making these issues all the more difficult to talk about. During our individual exploration of transgendered issues we must decide how much of a public face we wish to reveal to others. Additionally we must decide which values we wish to incorporate into our private lives and ultimately extend to children. Agreed, every parent wishes to provide their child with safety, nurturance, education and the opportunity to build self and social acceptance skills. Firsthand before disclosing to any relationship of importance, establish the facts, understand how being transgendered affects your life and theirs. Talk with your counselor regarding disclosure options and relevancy. In some cases not disclosing or limited disclosure may be optimum. One frequently overlooked necessity for those who are unable to disclose, is dealing with the feelings surrounding having to keep something hidden from family members, this is another subject that would be appropriate to bring into discussion with your counselor.

Politicizing Gender An anarchist transgendered womyn examines many issues, such as Brandon Teena and gender essentialism. http://www.spunk.org/texts/pubs/lr/sp001714/gender.html
Extractions: by Carolyn It is important for me to confront the differences and similarities between myself and other women. It's essential that we don't ignore our uniqueness nor rank our oppression. Acknowledging the specific nature of the oppression transgender people face, we can begin to deal with oppression not just from a theoretical base, but by "grappling with" what Cherrie Moraga describes as "the source of our own oppression, without naming the enemy within ourselves and outside of us, no authentic, non-hierarchical connection among oppressed groups can take place." Transsexualism: limiting identities and sources of power Gender is not solely a psychological state of being, it is a political status. I've chosen to identify Transgender as a word of liberation in my hopes of forging a common language of liberation with all gender outlaws. Transgender identity indicates a refusal to separate transsexuals from bulldaggers, transvestites, drag kings, drag queens, femmes, intersexes, androgynies, genderfucks and those who refuse all stated categories. However, this position is not necessarily widely held in these communities. Women's Liberation: What kind of revolution?

THIS DIGEST WAS CREATED BY ERIC, THE EDUCATIONAL RESOURCES INFORMATION CENTER. FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT ERIC, CONTACT ACCESS ERIC 1-800-LET-ERIC Research and development efforts in alternative forms of assessment are on the rise in science education, along with growing interest in using computers in science assessment. A review of technological applications in science assessment was provided by Helgeson and Kumar (1993), recent developments in computer scorable, large scale tests were reported by Martinez and Bennett (1992), and a theme issue on computer-based science assessment was prepared by the Journal of Science Education and Technology (Vol. 4, Issue 1, 1995). TYPES OF COMPUTER APPLICATIONS IN SCIENCE ASSESSMENT Assessment applications for computers can be broadly classified into two categories: traditional and contemporary. In traditional applications the infrastructure is rigidly algorithmic. Examples include forced-choice and multiple-choice testing, grading, and record keeping. In more contemporary applications the infrastructure is quasi-algorithmic or non-linear in nature. Examples include constructed response testing, adaptive testing, figural response testing, simulations, and solution pathway analysis.
