Women and the power to change by Florence Howe( Book )

15 editions published between 1974 and 1976 in English and Undetermined and held by 928 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The effect of the women's movement on the lives of academic women potentially has a major impact on college and university campuses. Although the movement has already reached thousands of students, chiefly through women's studies programs, it has not yet begun to change the institutions of higher education. The four women who are the authors of this book like other academic women have seen their lives off campus change over the past four or five years. Their experiences led each of these women in different academic organizations to press for women's studies courses, for child care, or other institutional changes. In this document, the four women chart the histories of their lives as feminists in the world of higher education. And as they do so, they inevitably approach the issue of institutional reform. No consensus is reached on the manner or extent of desirable reform, and though these women of dissimilar backgrounds and personalities agree on much, they make no attempt to disguise their differences. All are torn between the awareness of the "formidable power of male-conceived and male-controlled law" and their intense desire to see feminism "overthrow the empire -- not in exchange for an equally oppressive matriarchy, but rather to achieve the equalization of power."

Profile with information of interest to women are presented on about 600 colleges, based on the results of a questionnaire completed by campus administrators. Information on each campus includes the following: racial/ethnic/gender breakdowns of student populations, faculty/student gender, the most popular majors for women and the percentage of women in nontraditional majors, the percentage of women on the faculty and among the administrators; the percentage of women students in leadership positions, and the percentage of women participating in intercollegiate and intramural sports. The guide also covers: campus security measures; women's studies programs; assaults reported for 1980-1981; services especially for minority women; weekend and evening classes; sexual harassment policies; childcare facilities on and off campus; career counseling, health care, and other services; students' advocacy organizations; women's centers; networking with alumnae; centers for research on women; services for returning women students; sports scholarships; and intercollegiate sports available to women. Institutions are also rated on three categories: women in leadership positions, women and the curriculum, and women and athletics. A chart on sports available at each college, an index of institutions, and a questionnaire are included. (Sw)

Seven years later : women's studies programs in 1976 : a report of the National Advisory Council on Women's Educational Programs by Florence Howe( Book )

2 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fifteen women's studies programs across the U.S. were examined in this review commissioned by the National Advisory Council on Women's Educational Programs. All of the programs were in phase two of women's studies, defined as having a line budget, a paid administrator, and a curriculum that moves through committees and is recognized in an official catalog. Three questions shaped this study: (1) What is the current state of mature women's studies programs with respect to their faculties, students, curricula, classrooms, internal governance structure, and administrative relationships to their universities? (2) What has been the impact of these programs on their campuses and in their wider communities? (3) What dominant issues and needs are critical to the future of women's studies? Some of the indicators of the state of women's studies include enrollment growth, variety and depth of course offerings, and growing realization of institutional impact. Recommendations are offered regarding further study, development of materials, communications, and programmatic support. (Lbh)
The women's movement : impact on the campus and curriculum by Paul Lauter( Book )

5 editions published in 1978 in English and Undetermined and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two papers discuss changes in college campuses and curricula due to the emergence of women's issues and the movement to resolve them. An essay by Paul Lauter, "The Campus," outlines some of the forces on campus making for change in college curriculum and feminist scholarship. These forces are categorized as "pushes" (women as consumers of education, existing programs providing special services for women, statistical studies of women's progress through education and into careers) and "pulls" (exciting developments and strong interest in feminist scholarship). Florence Howe's "The Curriculum" outlines the history of women's higher education in the United States and its effect on the development of curriculum in women's studies. It is noted that women's studies are necessarily interdisciplinary and share the critical elements of general education: in short, they prepare students to make informed, ethical judgments that allow them to participate in social, political, and cultural life. It is proposed that the strength of women's curriculum grows from the relationship it projects between past and future, thus supporting the true function and responsibility of the university. (Mse)
