January 11, 1993 Dear Ms. Smeal: ,

This past July, the President of Barnard College, Ellen Futter, wrote inviting you to participate in a conference entitled Women as Change-Makers: Building and Using Political Power. The conference, which is in celebration of the twentieth anniversary of the Barnard Center for Research on Women, will take place on Saturday, April 24, 1993. I do hope it will be possible for you to attend.

In case the original letter was not received or has been misplaced, I am attaching a copy; it explains the concept of the conference, and your possible participation in it.

Since invitations were first sent out, there have been a number of positive responses. Among them are Faye Wattleton; Marie Wilson, Director of the Ms. Foundation; Dr. Margaret Hamburg, Commissioner of the New York City Health Department; Julia Scott of the National Black Women's Health Project; Representative Marge Roukema; Prof. Ruth Mandel of the Center for American Women and Politics, Rutgers University; New York City Councilmember Ronnie Eldridge; New York State Assembly- woman Deborah Glick; Commissioner Barbara Sabol of the NYC Human Resources Administration; Alexis Gelber of Newsweek magazine; Dr. Kathleen Francovic of CBS News; Prof. Catharine R. Stimpson; and the Honorable Betty Ellerin.

I will give your office a call in the near future to see if I may answer any questions, and to get your response.

With best wishes,

Leslie J. Calman, Ph.D. Director
