Notes on Debriefing from "The Scholar and the Feminist" Conference Women's Center 5/29/74 Louise Bernikow, Gladys Meyer, Darline Levy, Cynthia Lloyd, Susan Sacks, Jane Gould, Hester Eisenstein, Barbara Miller Louise: too great a range of issues covered in the workshops Gladys: need to have two types of workshops; one like ours was, broad; another more focussed Louise: there is an information gapl: people don't know how to get new sources into print, how to find out feminist bibliography Darline: we should pre-assign people to workshops and give out a bibliography ahead of time Louise: I felt my workshop was superficial; I felt intellectually hungry afterwards Gladys: there was a great range of ages and status Sue: doing this implies redefining goals and audience, which is OK, but we should be aware of this Louisezd example -- people talking about the problems of teaching Women's Studies, who have just started teaching this: this does not interest me Gladys: next year is International Women's Year: why not an international scholars” conference? We need to have a comon, focus. AAUW is part of an international organization, and has money; or the international women's medical association. She knows them. This, for financing. Jane: yes, but there will be many events this year, and our focus should stay academic Darline and Barbara: people giving the papers should get together ahead of time. The moderators need to have a clear GOAL/TOPIC. Gladys: Bell, et. al. saying "this is a private matter", "I just happened to fosus on a woman°s issue" is in sharp contrast to Lee Ehrman, who was very provocative, saying, "You women aren't working hard enough!"
