From: Susan R. Sacks, Coordinator Re: Thoughts from the meeting, Wednesday, February 6, 1974.

Present: Hester Eisenstein, Pat Graham, Cynthia Lloyd, Barbara Miller, Harriette Mogul, Elaine Pagels, Ann Sheffield, Mirella Servo- didio; Jane Gould, Director, Women's Center; Sue Sacks, Con- ference Coordinator; Catharine Stimpson, morning panel moder- ator.

The agenda for the February 6th meeting is attached. However, as we talked, the following consensus emerged.

...The umbrella theme for the afternoon workshops will remain Scholarship and Feminism: Conflict, Compromise, Creativity.

...In order for the afternoon discussions to be productive and focused, a specific topic for each workshop will be determined by the Barnard moder- ator and her partner. Among the suggestions were:

What new questions do we now ask of old data?

What are some of the political and human issues of discrimination we are now experiencing?

Has your approach, methodology, changed in the light of raised con- sciousness?

The work ethic and women...

Has primary education changed under the impact of feminism?

What are appropriate subjects for advanced study by women?

0V€I'. . .

This was just a sample of the topics we tossed out. All would fit within the umbrella of Scholarship and Feminism.

..Furthermore, it was suggested that each of the faculty members from Barnard will choose one other person to co—moderate her workshop. The person could be chosen from the list of people from the greater Columbia community or from colleagues at Barnard or from colleagues somewhere else. Some would choose partners from the same discipline; otheuswould select from another field.

...0n the day of the conference, during the check-in from 9:30-10:00, each outside participant would select the appropriate card for the workshop of her choice. Workshops and topics will be listed on a master sheet and twenty cards for each workshop will be available for selection, guaranteeing some size control.

If you have any questions, please call me at 280-5408 (336a Milbank) or 625- 2931 (home). If you have an idea for a topic and a partner to share your enthusiasm, return the coupon to me. I am enclosing two of our flyers for you and your partner. We will meet again in March.
