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?
