(FORTUNE Magazine) – BERKELEY, Calif. -- A federal civil rights official has complained to the University of California at Berkeley that its course catalogue contains sexist language . . . The official, Paul D. Grossman, chief regional attorney for the Education Department's Office of Civil Rights, . . . enclosed four pages of sample descriptions he thought might be read as sexist . . .

In describing Education 261B, ''The Role of Experts in Social Services,'' he suggested that ''grantmanship'' might be replaced by ''grantwriting, grant preparation, grant acquisition, or grant application.'' -- From a news report in the New York Times.
