Title

Letter to Gehman from Wheeler

Subject

Potential Article for Distaff Regarding Sexual Discrimination

Description

In the Feminist Ephemera series, there are a few items from correspondence between Gehman and her colleagues. This particular letter, written by Helen Wheeler, introduces an article Wheeler offers Gehman to print in Distaff. This article is a response to sexism and discrimination she and many others faced in Louisiana, though she notes that other publications wouldn't print this response. This item is interesting, as it shows a method how journalists receive information and maintain contacts in certain groups. Attached to this letter is a page of the AAUW newsletter touched upon in the letter, as well as the aforementioned article.
